Serenity Sunday: Another Autumn

The first of March is the official first day of autumn here in the southern hemisphere. In

Canada Geese, Kabekona Lake, Hubbard County, Minnesota

the northern hemisphere, the seasonal change falls on the equinox. Be that as it may,

Autumn Splendor, Hubbard County, Minnesota

I have always had fond feelings for autumn and, while I’m looking forward very much to

Maymont, Virginia

traveling back to the opposite season in the north in June, I feel moved to bring you—

White Oak Canyon, near Syria, Virginia

wherever you are—a few of my favorite images of autumn. May the forest be with you.

  1. Thank you for bringing such beauty, as our Spring is round the corner [Autumn has always been my fave…. those colors…] and may the Forest be with you too! ;-)

    Autumn (and Spring) are my favourite for the crisp cool breezes as much as the colour. Love that last shot of the stream. It draws me into the frame and gives me a sense of tranquillity.

    It was the early colonists who brought the colours of Autumn to Australia as the bursts of colour that are seen are from English and European imported trees (for the most).

      I hope that the new season brings us all some relief from the climatic disruption that our inadequate stewardship has engendered. May we all heed the call to regroup!

    Fabulous colours.. Hopefully the wind and seemingly endless rain will eventually abate here in the Uk as we head towards spring.

    Yes, autumn gets to me too, Gary. Beautiful images. And I’m a creature of the wide open spaces but, still, may the forest be with all of us! Adrian :)

  5. I have a hard time deciding on a favorite between the season fall and spring. Each has its own charm. Spring however is followed by lively color and hot but more comfortable temperatures while autumn is followed by stick season and bone chilling weather. At any rate, this is a fine collection of autumn reminders. Enjoy it while you can before returning the June’s heat.

      Although we travel back and forth now (by necessity, since our Minnesota cabin is not winterized), and we therefore no longer have to cope with what you most aptly call the bone-chilling weather, I have to say that I do miss the exquisite shock of going out into it on an extreme day (provided one is adequately dressed for it). I clearly remember a day in western MN when the thermometer read -36F and the wind was howling at 60 mph. The resulting wind chill was -100F. Oh, yes, I remember.

    I love both spring and autumn for the changes they bring. Even though our winters aren’t harsh, a bit of monotony can set in. By August, heat and humidity have turned into an endurance test. But the freshness of October and the sudden, fragrant mildness of March are treasures, and your photos evoke one end of that spectrum, beautifully.

    • krikitarts says:

      Thanks very much, Linda. I’ve gone back to (not too distant) archives for some of these, but each one evokes the time and place perfectly in my memory, and I relive each moment when I bring these back. That’s one of the prime beauties that result from a love of photography.

  7. Wow! Wonderful pics and exemplary photography!

    Love looking at the the colors of autumn especially when the air is crisp and cool. I can almost feel those sensations when looking at your pictures. Thanks.
