Autumn Advances

Floater by Eve Ticknor

Autumn has snuck up on me and I just realized I have been remiss with the lack of blogs. Such is life.

Autumn is a wonderful season, full of colour. The past few weeks has seen me leaning over all sorts of bridges. Why? Falling leaves. Leaves floating by, leaves sitting on the bottom of whatever waterway I happen to be leaning over. Some look just like paintings. The ones floating on the surface may look like little boats or a piece of oriental art while the ones below the water often look full of life, rushing by faster than I can snap the shutter. There is a whole different feel to them, different texture, perhaps changes in colour.

As the season progresses we will see less colour, but make up for it with ice.  Ice is pretty amazing, creeping bit by bit.  But look closely.  Do you see bits of colour on a sunny day?  What about designs?  How many kinds of ice do you see?  But enough of this.  Let’s stick to leaves for now.IMG_7609
