Autumn Morning

“The falling leaves drift by the window

The autumn leaves of red and gold.”

Be Yourself

It Ain’t Easy Being Green


“Spades take up leaves / No better than spoons, / And bags full of leaves / Are light as balloons. / I make a great noise / Of rustling all day / Like rabbit and deer / Running away.”

~Robert Frost

  1. Great quote and beautiful pictures.

  2. Only you could create such a great post featuring these lovely golden leaves.

  3. Wonderful pictures. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Beautiful❤️

  5. Marvelous collection here celebrates the crisp autumn I love! Thank you, Jane… and the Eliot quote was spot on.

  6. 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. 🍁

  7. 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.

  8. Nice. Which country is this? 🙂

  9. Just stunning. Love the quotes as well. Autumn lives in the human spirit.

  10. Wonderful quotes and images! I understand the effort involved in these compositions … to find and frame!

  11. 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. 🙂

  12. 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


  13. beautiful

  14. Great capturing of essence of autumn !!!

  15. I can hear the crunch of footsteps walking on those piles of leaves.🙂 We had such a long, perfect autumn and it looks like you did, too.

  16. These are beautiful! 🍁 🍃

  17. Very nice pictures of my favorite season!

  18. have to love the one red leaf amongst all the yellow!

  19. I think you may have channeled an old post from 2014, lol. 🙂

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

  20. This is a soothing post. Thanks.

  21. This is a fun collection with great captions, Jane.

  22. Oh wow, spectacular golden tonality, texture and composition. Bold and Beautiful is my fav!

  23. Gorgeous, Jane! I love photographing fallen leaves!

  24. lovely autumnal palette


  25. Always delightful beautiful compositions and colours Jane ~ sending you joy hedy ☺️💫

  26. 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 🙂

  27. You really captured fall with these leaves. Wonderful!

  28. Beautiful. Amber 🙏❤

  29. I like how the orange and warm colors in the leaves images led us into the pop with “It ain’t easy being green” – it had an effect 🙂

  30. Super, as always! Bravo, Jane!!! And thank you! 🙂

  31. The beauty is being hold by the amazing photographer, Jane you

  32. The leaves are just gorgeous Jane! Here we are slowly entering winter, with a chilly 15F at the moment.

  33. Beautifully composed shots, Jane, but the one titled “Collective spirit” really has captured my imagination!

  34. Very beautiful photos Jane. I like fall through your lens.

  35. SImple words and beautiful images. You have captured the season with excellence and elegance! PS … sent you an email.

  36. Love the images. Love the quotes. Love the post. 🙂

  37. truly beautiful examples of autumn.

  38. Love the poem, and Bright and Beautiful grabbed me, but I could be seduced by any of the others. 🙂 🙂

  39. Beautiful images, Jane. I love that old Johnny Mercer song too. 😃

  40. A lovely stillness to these shots, Jane. Rest and dormancy. ❤

  41. Beautiful collection, so vibrant and lovely fall colors!

  42. Fall’s beauty truly shines through your marvellous photos. And the quotes describe this colourful season so well, Jane.

  43. Your post leaves a good impression of fall foliage.

  44. Beautiful photos! Autumn is just an incredible season!

  45. Oh those piles of colorful leaves take me back to a childhood spent raking them into the highest pile only to jump into them and scatter them everywhere!

Love to hear what you think...
