Fall

When I look past the storm damage, it is very pretty this time of year.

I can imagine walking across this leaf carpet and hearing the gentle crunch beneath my feet. The autumn tones look so beautiful.

Makes me remember when we were kids, running through dead leaves was such a pleasure!

but it's hard to look past the damage. there are downed tree limbs (and entire trees) virtually everywhere you look.

Jack said...

You're right, brattcat. For example, even in this image, there is a broken limb hanging down on the right side of the tree. I shot low to minimimze it. But, we need to have positive attitudes.

Beautiful carpet!

Raking leaves (now that we cannot burn them anymore) is not my favorite activity, but it sure beats shoveling snow! Got our first snowfall yesterday afternoon and evening...very icy, too. Sigh! Jack, in an attempt to remain positive, I went out and bought a XC package.

It is indeed and your photo reflects this beauty!
Happy Sunday to you:)

Our ice storm of '98 was oh so similar. Google Maine Ice Storm... scary. We were out 9 days in WINTER! Others a lot more.

Very pretty time of year indeed! Makes me want to take a stroll through that neighborhood with a cup of hot cocoa or a pumpkin spice latte. (Having raked my fair share of leaves over the years, though, that yard looks like a lot of work.)

Love that carpet of tried leaves!

You're so right Jack, some of the pictures coming from your side of the world have been magic!

Lovely in the sunshine. I can hear and smell, as well as see, the scene.

cieldequimper said...

I can almost hear those leaves!

Fall has it's beautiful color and lots of work to prepare for winter.

I do love fall -- even now when we really had NO summer and, of course, you guys had STORMS! But the colors are so lovely and I love the sound of the leaves crunching as one walks through them! Such a beautiful capture, Jack!! Hope you've had a great weekend!

Try to stay upbeat Jack. Get out there and run about in those leaves!

Lowell said...

It is pretty. Until you have to rake it all up. Or do you just mulch it down into the grass?

Farmchick said...

This is a perfect fall day shot.

sheila lynch said...

very nice shot, crunch , crunch leaves. Your positive attitude makes all the difference about whether you can smile in a day!

It seems the carpet of leaves made its way down from here to you.

Thanks for sharing. And yes! We must have a positive attitude;o)
