It’s not summer so it must be Autumn….

Time waits for no man but makes the exception for Photoshop. The season is ineluctably changing even though the band has not yet struck up for the dance of death. Peaches are still  ripening in nearby trees whilst other species have finished fruiting or flowering and are clearly preparing for nature’s contrary demand that they undress for winter. Our changing weather patterns are changing our weather palettes but this chromatic aberration is enjoyed only by those who have the time to sit and watch without the need to react.  Such is the privilege of a photographer. And so when I was walking through the woods today I blinked and for a moment it was autumn.

    I see you’ve morphed into David Hockney – must be something to do with having Algy in the pool 😉

    A pair of sturdy walking shoes, perchance a stick for balance, sunglasses atop one’s head: what a relaxing walk – but getting to the end of the allee of Camelot green, the return proclaiming tomorrow: beautiful twin photos – may I prefer the feeling of the todays . . . .

    Roger I adore this line – ‘Peaches are still ripening in nearby trees whilst other species have finished fruiting or flowering and are clearly preparing for nature’s contrary demand that they undress for winter.’ The idea of nature undressing for winter, when we are wrapping up intrigues me. As always a joy to visit your blog.

    Enjoy the colours and the fading light of this wonderful time of year.

    It’s like a writer, having power to create the persons and their characters and even their destiny.

    I love the light coming through the trees. Our leaves are in the process of changing now…your photo is a prelude of things to come.

  14. It does seem as though this one particular season happens in a blink.. without warning.. beautiful photos as always:D

    If only the change of seasons was merely one of palettes. We are experiencing the first real chill of Autumn and though it will be short-lived, it is a sign of things to come.

    • I felt the cold in my hands this morning as I was having my daily tussle with Algy and the pool. Thankfully the pool will soon be covered with it’s winter cover, so whatever goes on under the covers I won’t know about until Spring:)
