Color Beckons!

Shot with DxO ONEYesterday’s turn around point for my morning walk was determined by its high impact of color! I had climbed a rise in the road and was just about to turn on my heel when this glorious display presented itself and pulled me forward.

It reminded me of a post I published four years ago. After I downloaded the image I perused the blog archives for September 2012 and there it was… Searching for Tom Thomson’s Autumn’s Garland was written in response to my visit to Algonquin Park. The few days of camping in that spectacular Northern Ontario park so treasured and often painted by the Group of Seven still brings back wonderful memories. The images I made then fueled my passion for photography.

Coupled with some thought provoking quotes makes looking for red and ochre leaves an activity that honors mindfulness…

“Leaves leave this world in beautiful fall colors and songs.”
Debasish Mridha

“Autumn is here
and I am in love.
My heart has taken residence in my mind.
I pick the crisp ochre leaves
and put them in my pocket.
I am in love.”
― Kamand Kojouri

  1. This is lovely. Thank you.


  2. It is still very green here. A few red and gold leaves as frost usually waits for a month or so to arrive. The drought has turned lawns brown, stunted flowers, and the evergreens have some rust coloured needles.

    Delightful poem celebrating my favourite time of year. It is both the colour and that fact that for me September is for new beginnings, a time to plan to learn something new.
