SundayStills - signs of fall

Fall is a time of extreme height
for showing off in a big, ornamental way
fall is unkempt and a bit wild

fall is golden amongst greenery

a warm evening glow

see sundaystills for more signs of fall

  4. Fall is beautiful and sad. The colours, the light... and the green past its prime, drying, dying... Much as I love it, it's a harbringer of winter. Which makes me quite distraught...

    Those canna's will soon have fantastic seedheads...I saw them already in a garden over here. (The Netherlands). Like the warm light and reflection on the duck too:-)

  14. I think our "warm" just ended. Cold today, window, rainy. It's ok, I'm ready.

    The colors in the ducky pic are so pretty.

  15. I like the way you think, VS...."in an ornamental way", cause I'm a sucker for clever wordplay.

    Duckie is my favorite...the light is spectacular in that one.

  16. Thanks, flowerweaver, Sunny, Ed, Scott, KK, Lisa, Geewits

    Sorry Frogdancer, am I confusing your brain while you are on holidays? Our weather is probably about the same now.

    Jazz, are you always this pessimistic about the weather?!!

    Yes Gilly, that is the hated goldenrod.

  17. Ebie and Quinn, I ended up buying some flowering cabbage or kale while at the garden centre taking these photos!

    The duck is my favourite, I loved the brilliant warm golden colour on them. Thanks, regular guy, mellimaus, crazysheeplady, Chloe, Marleen.

    Ruth, yes it is rainy and miserable at the moment.

    Thanks for noticing that play, Susan! I was so glad I stopped off at the marina that day.. and had my camera for the ducks.
