I took these photos while out on a dog walk on Sunday. It was a beautiful sunny autumn day, and the trees were hanging onto their last modesty covering of leaves. On Sunday evening the wind whipped up and a wild storm blew all night. In the morning the ground was strewn with leaves and the trees were bare. I was so glad I had taken the time to enjoy a walk on Sunday, as the scene has changed completely now. That’s the last of the autumn colour for another year I think.
It’s a great reminder not to procrastinate, and to get out and enjoy every day as it is. No day is ever repeated, which is abundantly clear when change happens suddenly and dramatically overnight. Yet even the quiet days and the little subtle differences and changes are well worth taking the time to notice. Don’t be in such a hurry for the next day, until you have had time to savour and appreciate the day you are already in.
Never will this last fling of colour been seen again. It will not repeat, so why not embrace the unique, never to be repeated wonders of nature. She might even make us smile 🙂
Especially like the last photos. This wonderful Autumnal coat is so transient isn’t it. So all the more reason to photograph it before it goes! Thanks for posting.
My pleasure….it’s one of my favorite times of year and its nearly over 🙂 Oh well there’s always next year!
