Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: #106 – Autumn

Autumn used to be my favourite season when I was young. As I grow older, I am happy to experience the beauty of each season.

Patti’s challenge this week is Autumn – and never has it been more difficult for me to choose images…my autumn tributes counts in the thousands. I will let my choices speak for themselves. As usual, click to enlarge.

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

When the autumn meets the tranquillity, there you can see the King of the Sceneries!

Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.

Happiness is to get lost in an autumn forest, and not to be found is even a greater happiness!

When everything looks like a magical oil painting, you know you are in Autumn!

Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.

Every season has its own art and the art of autumn is to bewitch the people!

A special thanks to Tina for hosting last week’s Spring challenge. And thank you all for sharing your spring poetry with us – hope and joy transmitted over the world!

Finally – Stay safe and well – hope to see many of your autumn memories! Next week it is my (Leya’s) turn to be your host – for Winter. Looking forward to seeing you then.





A Friday Forest Shower with Me and Totti

Come with us for a morning walk – an autumn forest shower!

The crisp, cold mornings are the best ones…

And you know, Totti shares all his secret treasures with me…his best paths and digging holes for example…

Mostly I am ahead of him, because he is getting a bit slow – turning 11 next time – but still going strong. I always wait for him to catch up of course.

And we are the best friends – now and forever. I hope you have a best friend too!

Drones…are maybe not well liked by all of us…but this one is for mapping an area of scientific interest.

Motorbikes – driven by old gentlemen!

Taking down the forest – is done by these big machines nowadays.

Thursday Thoughts – Quality Time

We have had some quality time, just Totti and me – and the camera.

Away from the energetic Milo and away from home

Heading for the forest in the early morning

A day of promise

A day of joy and happiness for the two of us

And the little things…

that really matters


September Feelings

Totti and I walked the familiar track in the Vedema forest. Some trees were taken down, which made it a bit difficult to recognize the path. Still warm in the air, but autumn signs were everywhere.  A fine day.
