  1. Those three photographs perfectly sum up Autumn for me Bonnie - love the skein of geese or whatever they are - and against such a clear blue sky - beautiful.

  10. Just lovely Bonnie

    and I have learned from Weaver that a configuration of geese in flight is called a skein like wool...

    Happy autumn weekend Bonnie

  13. Fall is the most beautiful season of them all.
    I love that we experience at a different time of year. Through blogging I get to experience it via photos posted while in the season of Spring.

  14. First time visiting your blog. Many amazing things. Had to stop more than once to get a better view of the paintings flashing by-some are positively gorgeous. Bright, cheerful colors. A sense of grandeur. Some great articles, too.

  15. hi bonnie - well yes there it is in three visual phrases. the "v's" have been flying over with much more purpose in the last couple of days. the local group are still practising but the long distance boys are going overhead at a good rate. have a lovely autumnal sunday. steven

  16. Dearest Bonnie, Your images are posted in such a poetic order, silent yet resounding. First the immediate focus on what is near, the essence of our survival, then a more distant, all inclusive focus, within our reach yet distant, and then to the firmament above, expansive, vistas of vastness, our spiritual terrain, our soaring Self. Thank you.

  17. Lovely auumn pictures, the birds threaded on a necklace of overhead wires are the most evocative for me.

  19. I LOVE the recent captures!

    Well... when I was thinking of the wonderful folks that "stick with me" and come by whether I've been good about posting or commenting (you know how on and off it's been this summer!), I thought of your lovely self and just had to come tell you...
    I'm finally holding another giveaway on my blog. Thought you might like to know. :)

    Have a wonderful Sunday, dear lady. :)

  20. Weaver: Thank you for your feedback. Is that what they are called - a 'skein' of geese? Is that when they are in the sky? On the ground they are called a gaggle of geese? Who invents these terms anyway?

  21. Sandra: I'm glad. I almost didn't display that image - thinking it was not colourful enough.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Cat: My favourite season too. The weather is so bearable and the colours so stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Margaret: Delightful to hear the different perspectives. I love winter and so do not experience the melancholy you describe.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sniffles & Smiles: Well, when you like what I offer here I am honoured, considering the calibur of your work.

  25. Alaine. Thank you. The Sumac trees are my favourite of the three shots. I love the lacey look of the trunks and branches as the criss-cross.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Julie: Ahhhh. Thank you so much - my favourite too.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Renee: Those geese have made a name for themselves haven't they. Although I hear that when they land to rest or eat they are not quite as popular - considering the 'gifts' they leave behind!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Delwyn: Thank you. Yes 'skein' must for them in flight, because I believe on the ground they are known as a gaggle of geese.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Vicky: Thank you. I hope you will share your shots of Autumn in your neck of the woods.

  30. Jayne: Thank you. Mutual admiration society here!

  31. Liss: Isn't that one of the perks of blogging?
    We get to experience other seasons of other hemispheres in real time. Quite amazing!

  32. Nothing Profound: Thank you so much. I'm happy you enjoyed my articles and images. Please come back again soon.

  33. Steven: The geese are really behaving like 'frequent flyers' these days. We live by the Richelieu River and they seem to follow it south - so the traffic has been pretty constant.

  34. Rose Marie: You have a way of making the simple things I post seem so special. I thank you for that . . . it always takes me aback!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Friko: Thank you for leaving such a lovely verbal image - birds threaded on a necklace. I feel quite blessed to have writers like yourself stop by and describe my images with text better than I could ever have conjured up myself.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sniffles and Smiles: You are a dear. Thank you for your kind expressions of friendship. I feel the same. My daughter is doing really well - back to living life normally and fully again. It has been a year, and when I think back to the confusion, turmoil, pain, anguish, fear of a year ago, I am filled with wonder and gratitude at how we have all emerged the better, closer and stronger for it.
    I will not stop thinking of your and sending you strength and love until your operation is over and you are back home again. Wish I could hold your hand.

  37. Beholden (Jenna): Thank you!! I will visit your blog and check out your giveaway. Hope you will too dear readers - this is one amazing professional photographer!

  38. The leaf at the top (sigh) if I could fade in such a lovely manner I wouldn't begrudge change of season- age- that leaf is a beautiful inspiration if for nothing else for playing with watercolours and buying a new frock exactly that colour ...Beautiful post.

  39. Great shots, all of them. The one of the birds is incredible!
