Photography 101: Landscape

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
John Muir

Photography 101: Mystery

The Mysterious Path

Life is a path with a beginning and an end.
Around each bend in that path you’ll encounter mystery and choice.
Plan as you may, the journey you intend as you start down the path,
May be far different from the journey you finish.

Dreaming The Dream Of Autumn

Days shorten, in the air a chill.

Landscape awash in brilliance.

To dream the dream of autumn.

Autumn Hues

A cold wind blows, bringing a chill to the morning air.

Summer’s warmth becomes a pleasant memory as green becomes red and gold. 

The days are crisp, the air is clear, the hillsides dressed in brilliant Autumn Hues.

The question posed on the Daily Post, 

“Changing colors, dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes: do these mainstays of Fall fill your heart with warmth — or with dread?”

My answer.

Warmth, anticipation, excitement, and joy.

Autumn is the most beautiful season. The awakenings of Spring and the comforting warmth and long days of Summer pale in comparison to Fall as the land adorns itself in its colorful best one last time before Winter’s sleep falls across the landscape.
