Hidden Gems

Our blustery weather lately has left our trees barren. And although I miss the colors of summer, I love the hidden gems that are revealed after the leaves have fallen.
The lone leaf......
skeletal remains of our summer past....

curly vine tendrils that have been hiding behind summer leaves....

bursts of fiery redness....

wispy sprays of floral filament....

and the well of farmhouse days gone by, shows itself during the cooler months.


Are you enjoying the effects of Fall?

  3. Lovely group of photos (and descriptions to accompany them). We had a wonderful 60ish day today. Fall for us - would be Indian Summer for others. The air is crisp and cool at night - the dogs' and coyotes' barks seem extra loud and close. It's a wonderful season. :)

  4. Fall is a very colorful time of year with the reds, oranges, and yellows of the leaves. Winter provides its own more subdued beauty. You have captured this beauty.

  5. A new measurement of time and life.

    As it gets rarely colder than inside a fridge, autumn is a bit hard to find over here; yet it reminded me much of home. Thank you. Please have a good weekend you all.

  12. Living in a year round tropical climate, I do often miss the cool weather of autumn. I remember them well in Pennsylvania, especially in Amish country. Sigh.

  13. I enjoyed taking a look at these 'pieces of fall'. The ones we often just pass by without notice.

  15. Thank you for the tips about flickr and picnik (sp?). I could just kick myself for not saving the original photos. What an idiot! Haha! Oh well, there will be more nice photos to capture.

    I do like the different look of everything in late fall. A few things just hanging on until the first real blast of winter.

    Love your photos. You really catch the feel of things, if you know what I mean. :)

  19. Now I want to go grab my camera and head outside! We have been socked in by fog most of the day! One effect of the rainless days is that we have been blessed with sunshine. It's weird not to see much of it today! Great pics!

  22. I like how you've captured the remnants of fall - beautifully done. I especially like the one of the now-exposed old well.

  24. Nice set of photos. Never realised that the interim period between autumn and winter could be so good with the camera.
