Have a Great Fall Weekend!

I'm grateful for autumn, for the cooler weather, for autumn colours and smells, for the first fire in a wood fireplace on a crisp autumn evening, for pumpkin soups and pies, for the wind rusting the leaves, for the crisp air and the sight of geese honking as they fly overhead...
Mother Nature did all the work and provided all the colours, shades, and shapes. I was just at the right place at the right time!

Have a wonderful weekend, my lovelies!

No matter how you spend it, may it be filled with joy and delights.

Here's one Cut And Dry post-video that I'm sure you'll find it quite amusing. How about a Ba-Donka-Donk? :)













Have a great one! xx

Those are great photos! I love the fall and especially the fireplace. This was the first morning in Atlanta that I had to scrape ice off the windshield. Love that crisp air...

Very - Arty, colourful, and enjoyable post and pics, my friend.

Hilary said...

Being at the right place at the right time is 90% of what good photography is about. The other 10% is having the good sense/eye to recognize it. Beautiful pics, Betty.

LOL at the video clip! It's always strange for me to hear House talking with his true accent. I don't know how he pulls off the American accent on the show. I love him to death!

Great images! Have a splendid weekend, Betty.

Cloudia said...

Nevine said...

Your fall colors are just delicious, my dear! Warm and passionate and full of life. Just what I need to curb the bite of the chill autumn air...

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. :-)

Warm hugs,
Nevine

Journaling Woman said...

I love your photos.

I love fall colors too, but here in MO USA, the colors are now on the ground and not so colorful.

Winter here we come.

Have a great weekend.

I'm so partial to the goose photos (since I have about 12 of them at the farm!) Lovely captures of Autumn. xoxo

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

My, your photos are wonderful! Love the geese! Thanks for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday.

Anvilcloud said...

I like the selective color, if that's the right phrase, in the second last photo. Very nice effect.

LeAnn ~ My Day In The Making said...

I feel like I am on a little journey as I look down the page. So many wonderful shots. I saw a different post that you had swans in...beautiful!! I also saw you recently lost a friend. So sorry. It sounds like she was much loved and appreciated. What a wonderful way to live and then to be remembered once your life comes to a close. Precious. ~

Wonderful fall images, esp the 2nd shot! =)

Yesterday was really really nice in my neck of the woods, but today, it's raining... I'm glad it isn't freezing cold & snowing, though! =)

Farila said...

beautiful pictures.. Wish you the same Betty dear

Anonymous said...

You have fully expressed the beauty of fall through your pics.
Each image is beautiful!
I like this post. That is one of your greatest posts to me.

Leovi said...

Wow! Beautiful landscapes, I like the light and color. Delicious frames. I love that autumnal atmosphere.

SandyCarlson said...

Autumn is the bomb for the pure coziness and rich color and texture it brings. An invitation to rest. How welcome!

Carletta said...

Those first two images are lovely and your processing of the second one is just wonderful! I'm really taken with the next to last one with the selective coloring. Makes me think a little leprechaun has walked that side of the path. :)
Love Hugh Laurie - great video!

anilkurup said...

Hi, I have seen your comments often on Petty Witter and then behold I saw you in my Blog.

I will pick up on some of your posts when I have time.
The ones in here, the pictures are beautiful.
In my journeys to Europe in autumn , I have sensed the descriptions you gave in here. The crispy fallen leaves , and the air itself waits eagerly in bated breath.
Thanks for the poetic ride.

Pat Tillett said...

that about sums up autumn! Although I live in the land of mostly palm trees, we're RV camping up in the mountains for a couple of weeks and there is so much color! Maybe we'll wake up to snow...

Rizalenio said...

Your photos made me dream of this kind of season that our country will never have. Thanks for this great experience. Have a great week ahead.

Sherin said...

Love the autumn pictures!! They're so pretty.

Lynette said...

Beautiful images...I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

BrandNewStudio said...

Congratulations for your point of view
Greetings

Craver Vii said...

Great fun here, Betty! I like the near and far aspects in the first few images, especially the peekaboo factor in the third image (leaves & logs).

The swirling stream is marvelous. I have yet to learn how to set my camera to capture that kind of look.
