Fall has always been my absolute favorite time of year. As the days and nights grow shorter and the sun shines her glorious luminous light, the leaves ever so slowly begin to change. This year, fall has been coming at a snail’s pace given our Indian Summer. Yet during the last few days the leaves have begun to turn into their magical tapestry of colors. Hues from pumpkin oranges, to scarlet reds and golden yellows delight the eyes. It is nature’s way of rewarding us with beauty and preparing us for the long, colorless winter ahead.

Autumn has arrived for you. On the East Coast it is inching itself.
Yes it has! In full force and it is lovely!

Yes, I remember autumn although it’s been a while since I’ve seen one! Autumn colors are gorgeous and I also love that smokey, damp autumnal smell. I especially love your first photo, Nicole!
I love fall so much. It is just gorgeous out and so invigorating to the body and soul! 🙂
Here it’s just hot all year round with a rainy season and a dry season. It’s lush at the moment because of the rain. I love that!
The color of the first on is amazing! It’s a little cooler in TX, but summer is not over yet 🙂
Yes, it has remained summer here and we are still in shorts which will probably end tomorrow. Strange weather we are having these days in MN!
Lovely atmospheric shots, Nicole 🙂
Thanks Jo! I love fall!
Fall is my favorite season, as well, Nicole. In fact, I’m going to miss the leaves changing color now that we live so close to the equator. Lovely images, my friend.
Hugs from Ecuador,
I will send you lots of pics if I can! Do you do Instagram at all? I am @thirdeyemom and am posting lots of fall pics there and on Facebook! 🙂
Our first year of RVing we were up in your neck of the woods and the colors were fabulous!
