Autumn tones

It feels like the autumn colors appeared in a night, but probably it took few nights. I am very lucky that I can view the change in the nature from my backyard. watching the seasons change is great, many time I don’t need to leave my living room.

Yesterday between the the mostly cloudy day, was a moment of sunshine. I ventured outside and took these first signs of autumn tone photographs.

The autumn leaves

I Haven’t been out of the house so my seasonal photos are from my previous drive.

Feeling much better 🙂 Once again, I now remember how it feels to have the flu, I have to say, I have not missed this feeling. I have had so many cups of tea and cough drops in the past week.

November’s sky is chill and drear, / November’s leaf is red and sear.

~Sir Walter Scott

it is few days a way from November, the dreariest month of all, dark, wet and cold. So Even the quote is about November and we are still in October, I will take an exception on posting it as is goes with the photos.

Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.

The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking…

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter. 

Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.

~William Allingham

Autumn chores

Autumn chores at the summer house nearly every year includes burning of dry twigs that you have left from cutting down trees. That was in the agenda this year too.

Looking for Signs of autumn

It was one of those perfect Finnish autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.

Welcome September

The autumn colors are coming more obvious the change of the green to more yellow tones, muted. Orange and reds appearing on the leaves. Yesterday it poured, rain, sunshine, rain …in between i went hunting for droplets. Here is the shot of the day. I also have added the blurred and not so focused shots as I like them for the artsy feel. Not everything needs to be perfect.
