Autumn leaf, ©voyager, all rights reserved

Well, there it is. The first colourful leaf of autumn laying on our forest pathway. The trees themselves haven’t turned colour yet, but slowly the signs of autumn are beginning to appear. Around our neighbourhood the hydrangea blooms are withering and big pots of colourful mums are appearing. In the country John Deere green tractors go back and forth and back and forth preparing the land for winter.  It’s sweater season and it’s my favourite time of year.

    A solemn sight. I like the composition of those scattered leaves.

    Here the trees did not discolour their leaves yet too, but this morning we had first frost.

    Very interesting lighting, neat effects! And yes, we’ve got coloured leaves galore already. Ah well, it was bound to happen sometime!

    Pretty, it looks painted! The leaves aren’t turning here yet, I think it’s been too hot.

    We have a lonely out of season honeysuckle bloom on our plant. Very weird, but I’m sure that the hummy who owns the patio is enjoying it.

    That’s a lovely autumn leaf. Autumn leaves are an endless source of fascination for me. I love holding them against the sun to take close-up photos, the colours and textures look even more beautiful that way.

    It still doesn’t look much like autumn here, though. Today we had 35ºC. But sunlight is already different, more golden. I love this time of the year!

    It seems this one left a bit early as there’s still green by the veins.

    A beautiful picture of the first signs of ruska (Finnish for autumn colours).

    Leaves have ben changing for weeks around here (Connecticut) but still far from peak.

    Best fireworks ever and they aren’t lud enough to scare the cats.
