Autumn 4 - Transition

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 2 October 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

The earthy green edge of life collects Autumn leaves that float and mingle in clear dark water stirred by the breeze into light shimmering patterns and I delight in relationship -- resembles the rough grooves of a cottonwood tree trunk.

Soon the trees will be skeletal, and the rich Fall foliage will go to the bottom of the pond and dissolve into the primal mud, and the water will freeze into ice for kids and dogs to run and slide on.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

A fine shot that shows the gradual change from summer to fall and then winter. Excellent captures of the beautiful contrasts in color.

Wonderful layers in this composition, Joyce. We are enjoying balmy weather and the leaves haven't really gotten their color coats on yet, so I'm enjoying this season vicariously : thanks !

Lovely. Another case of envy I've had this week is that Mike's brother and party are in Yellowstone for a few days. I would love to see the fall arriving.
