Kaleidoscope Of Color

The Brilliance Of Autumn

The Landscape At Its Best

 

Just as the first soulful cry of the loon on our lake signifies the onset of spring, the trumpeting of Canada geese, cruising overhead in near perfect V formation, whispers that autumn will soon be upon us.

Though the days are still warm, and summer hasn’t officially ended, there’s a crispness in the morning air that hints at the season to come.

As summer gives way to fall, the anticipation of brilliantly colored landscapes fills me with excitement. Though typically lasting but a few short weeks before the leaves have fallen from the trees, autumns vibrant splendor is a sight to behold.

Soon, the seasons kaleidoscope of color will be upon us again.

  1. You always manage to capture the seasons perfectly Jeff :). These photos are breathtaking! I do love the fall colours, but you would laugh at me if you saw me yelling at the Canada Geese not to leave. I wish it could stay summer forever. Or, how about spring, summer, fall and skip winter? LOL

    • Thanks Cindy! It’s pretty hard to make a bad photograph during peak foliage season here in New Hampshire.

      I have to disagree with you on the seasons though, winter comes in a very close second to autumn as my favorite time of year when it comes to photography. 😀

      By the way, has a little package arrived on your doorstep by any chance? I haven’t got a clue how long it normally takes from New Hampshire to Ontario.

  2. I’m hoping to get some Fall photos both here in southern Wisconsin where I live, and up north. We’re hoping to take a trip up there during bow season, and again in late November for gun season. Maybe by then I’ll even have picked up a camera that isn’t just my phone 🙂

    • Good luck, I hope both your hunt for photos and your hunt for game are a success. Better get your foliage photos early though, gun season is usually during the peak of stick season, with all of the color long gone.

  3. My absolute favorite season, short as it is. I want to wrap myself in those colors all year, surround myself with them like a tapestry muting the cold, damp walls of my winter castle. Do your photos come in wall size? 😉

    • Mine too, with winter a close second. At least as far as photography goes.

      Not sure about “wall size,” having only printed as large as 20″ x 30″, but as good as the prints looked at that size, I could go larger. I think a few large prints would be the perfect way to have the beauty of fall in your home year round. 😉

  4. Um, Jeff, aren’t you using the A word a little too freely and prematurely? I’m looking forward to the change of seasons, too, I’ll be one of the first to admit, but we have another 2-1/2 weeks yet until the official change. Your A shots are among the best out there, but please help us to savor what’s left of the glorious S-season, while she lasts!

  5. autumn at its best. thanks for sharing. the weather has really cooled down here on the west coast, and it is starting to feel like summer is on its way out, and autumn colours are on their way in as well. it certainly is a treat to live in a part of the world that has distinct seasons!

    • Thank you! Yes, I don’t think I could live in a part of the country, or world that didn’t have distinctly different seasons. And though I may be biased, during autumn there’s absolutely nowhere else I’d rather be than in New England.
