Falling Away...


Short version: Stayed out for hours (Friday) awaiting sunny moments... and then the glow came ☺



Hello dear friends!!!


Got lucky again :-)

We've had a lot of wet & grey days this Fall (Autumn), but if you stick around long enough, the beautiful sunlight will shine through :-)


I spent the morning riding / walking around, experienced a few showers and also a lot of spiky chestnuts falling from the trees (had my bike helmet on though!)

Was hoping for perfectly still water, but the wind continually blew and produced minor ripples on the canal (which ended up working out okay, the reflections have a 'painted-on' feel to them).


Between the grey & cloudy skies, light rain, falling chestnuts and early sunset, I felt lucky to finally get some decent shots by the afternoon.


This wasn't the shot I was planning for (not complaining) but I'm running out of time this season.

As you can see from the pic, many of the trees on one side of the canal have already lost a lot of leaves, and I think they'll be bare by next week.

Tomorrow and the following days are supposed to be completely grey with rain, so I was happy to get out there before the last leaf fell ;-)


I will say I was pleasantly surprised by this delightful afternoon glow (as I usually go for the morning moods).

Looking at the photo, you'll see the sky is mostly covered with clouds, and I got lucky when a little blue began to show.

That's when a gorgeous glow brightened the leaves (not only on the trees but also on the wet, green grass).

So I ran down the bank and planted myself on the rocks... twisting, turning, crouching, doing what I love :-)

(no, I didn't fall in, but I did slip twice!)


It was fun !

Photography is often an adventure for me :-)


As always, I hope you find something interesting or enjoyable here...


Have a wonderful day my friends!
