A Few Fall Leaves

Autumn leaves. Golden yellow, reddish orange, bluish green, red all different colours make me feel warm. I think that is what I like most about fall. Here are a few fall images I took the other day - leaves are turning and falling, but still a lot of green...but I'm planning on going out next week...

Fall Is in the Air!

Colours of  Autumn.

Hello everybody! I've been MIA since my last post. My apologies! Thanks for hanging in and checking on me. So. It's been a while since my last post. Now it's late September. The time has flown by! (It seems to go even faster the older you get!;)
Things have been a little busy in the "real world" lately, leaving not enough time for blogging. This past weekend was packed with photo-shoots and quality time with family. I have really missed you guys, I must admit.
Anyway, Fall certainly is in the air! (Mark your calendars: September 22nd is the first day of autumn.) It's almost overwhelming how much I want to see, and do, during these next couple of months.
Cozy over-sized sweaters, home-cooked comfort food, misty mornings, crisp air, fall foliage, and steaming hot cider are just a few things on my mind as fall approaches. I'm so looking forward to seeing, smelling and breathing the fall season itself.

Here's a list of things I'm planning on doing this year.

* Go apple picking.

* Spend a Saturday afternoon baking apple pie.

* Trying out new pumpkin pie recipes.

* Make cookies shaped like autumn leaves.

* Take more photos.

* Go on a fall nature walk.

* Visit a winery.

* Go on a leaf hunt.

* Collect golden brown autumn leaves.

* Get a new scarf.

I hope this list gives you some ideas for your own Fall To-Do list. Have a wonderful weekend! xx

August Sunflowers

Don't you just love them?

As August draws to a close, most of my summer photo opportunities are almost over. Lately, I've been studying up on my lenses and camera modes and it's astonishing how much more control I've gained over my camera by using the Manual mode. The main advantage of using this mode is that you take full control over Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO (the three variables that make up exposure), and in turn you can decide how the final image looks.

Today I have some sunflowers to share with you. It wouldn't be summer without sunflowers, right?
Taken with the Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II lens. I processed these photos in Adobe Lightroom 6.

I hope you enjoy them.

Have an awesome weekend! xx

Five Things Tuesday

Enjoying the scent of August roses.

Hi there. Hope you are all well. A big Hello to all the new readers out there - thanks for stopping by.
It's been a bit of whiz these past few days or so with lots going on...exercising, shoots, catching up with friends, trying out some new recipes...yeah, it's been pretty awesome.

It's been a while since I posted a Five Things Tuesday post. I decided I wanted to start doing it again, so here goes...
For those of you who are new readers Five Things Tuesday was started a couple of years ago as way to sit down and reflect on what the past days have been like for me.

Happy Tuesday! xx

Tasting Melon and Prosciutto Salad.

This is the simplest summer salad. Amazingly light and tasty.
{In case you're interested, here is the Melon and Prosciutto Salad Recipe.}


1/2 honeydew melon, halved, seeded, peeled and cut into thin wedges
6 thin slices prosciutto
A small handful of arugula
Honey Vinaigrette
Freshly ground black pepper
A chunk of Parmesan cheese (optional)


Cover the arugula with the sliced melon, about 3-4 slices.
Top with 3-4 slices of prosciutto.
Add 1-2 grinds of freshly ground black pepper and drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons of vinaigrette.
Use a vegetable peeler to shave thin pieces of Parmesan over the top (optional).

Honey Vinaigrette


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil.
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar.
1 teaspoon honey.


To make the Vinaigrette, you simply combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. And process until smooth.

Note: Tweak this Vinaigrette recipe to your liking, by adjusting the amount of each ingredient.
