Autumn Morning

The autumn leaves of red and gold.”

  7. Another beautiful series, Jane, the final sights of a wonderful autumn…it is always a bit sad to watch it leave 🙂 All photos catch the spirit of this time of year, and especially like “Be Yourself” ~ it is a good thought to have as winter is just around the corner. Cheers to a great final month of this strange, unforgettable year 🙂

    • Hi Randall, Thanks very much.
      Agree, a bit melancholy to see the season change although it’s happening a bit more slowly in SoCal. Glad you enjoyed these small scenes. We are all just hanging on like the last of the autumn leaves. 🍁

  8. Those pictures are beautiful. Nice autumn for you in California, right? Regards from Prambanan Jogjakarta. It’s a rainy season here. And we’re still at home on this pandemic. So fresh to see colorful leaves.

  12. I love the way you took a simple subject and stuck with it, Jane. The progression of the series is very nice, and the titles add a bigger context. If I had to choose favorites it would be the first and third. But they work as a group, all together, and of only our country could do that a little better, too. 🙂

  13. The environment is not something around us.
    It is us.

    What a self centered notion when we ‘think’ of it…

    Thanks for this reminder.

    Have a great day

    Are you still on fire watch? I read how SoCal Edison turned off the power just in case the Santa Anas blew too hard.

  27. These are such stylish leaves (I love the green one too though!) and beautifully framed. Are they the leaves of the liquid amber? I enjoyed the captions too. And Johnny Mercer’s ‘Autumn Leaves’ truly is evergreen 🙂
