Early Fall Color and Light



While in my yard or on my daily walk, the ever changing color and light of early fall has caught my eye this week. This single, red maple leaf fell and landed ever so perfectly, on top of this mum - the colors are so vibrant.

It is too early for much color on the trees, but the splashes of red and yellow against the blue sky are signs of the beauty to come.

The light and shadows of fallen leaves on this stream, make me pause on the bridge to enjoy the setting.

As I walk through the woods, the fall light, illuminates the vibrant color, as it shines through the leaves.

It is a wonderful time of year to enjoy the changes of color and light on the many paths I walk in my neighborhood. The paths are filled with fallen leaves that crunch under my feet as I walk and I am reminded to enjoy the fleeting beauty of fall.

Have a wonderful weekend!
