There would be no autumn if there were no leaves to fall.
It begins with the changes in color. Summer’s vivid greens turn shades of gold and orange, some a raucous red, and then finally to crunchy browns underfoot. We watch the show from our windows, our walks, and our drives. It is a grand show indeed. So much change in what seems such a short time. An overload of beauty and a feast for the senses. Seems everywhere you click in the Shutter Sister pool right now you are bound to find images of autumn’s bounty.
On the ground.
In a little hand.
Up in the trees.
Let’s all celebrate autumn’s simplicity. Have fun with it. Maybe go outside and make yourself a leaf pile and jump on in! Perhaps treasure hunt for the perfect leaf and make a leaf rub, or press it in a book to rediscover in seasons to come. What colors and shapes are you drawn to? Do you search for the biggest brightest leaf you can find, or are you drawn to the small?
Autumn’s show will be coming to a close up here in the cold north. All too soon I will be surrounded by monotones and bare sticks. So today show me your favorite leaf shot. OVERLOAD me with all that glorious color that mother nature provides. I can never get enough.
