Breathtaking, Bonnie! I see! It starts up there first, then trickles down here . . My favorite photo is the single crimson leaf with the twirling vine and the muted background. That is such a gorgeous photo! omg! They all are!
Stunning photographs, Bonnie! a gloriously beautiful and prized season! My favourite for sure~~Calli
Beautiful! Oh, Fall! I miss it. It actually rarely trickles all the way to Southern Cal. Maybe in December, we'll get a cold snap that will turn the leave on the maples that haven't dropped yet. Your shots are so beautiful. "Thanks," she says wistfully.
Thank you! What a treat to see such vivid fall colors. California's display of fall colors is decidedly less evocative and spectacular.
I agree with Magaret...I love the photo of the Virginia Creeper Vine and it's twirling tendril.
oh my, those are all stunningly beautiful, bonnie ~ isn't nature so remarkable? we are just now getting frost for the first time this season, if you can imagine! walked across the diamond studded grass to the studio just now ... and they are predicting we may be shoveling snow by morning ... only in manitoba! ... only in canada! the leaves have been falling and changing slowly, but after tonight i should think things will really start to change!thanks so much for sharing your lovely images,prairiegirl xo
Gorgeous! I love the way you showed the leaves on the ground.
Hi BonnieJust gorgeous royal coloursand I too loves the little twirly spirals..Happy days
So similar and yet so different, but in essence its what I attempted to shoot myself today and couldn't get my photos to come out right :) Glad I could enjoy yours instead and dream of what could have been, lol! Beautiful fall photos.
Absolutely beautiful! Don't get that kind of color here.
What a glorious treat to start my day. Stunningly beautiful :))
Had I come earlier last night I would have asked you to kindly lend one of your images to accompany my post for National Poetry Day in the UK. Instead of me 'borrowing' (stealing is a more fitting word ;-D) an image from the net, I could have used your sixth photo top to bottom which is an absolute beauty. I can actually smell the morning dampness in that leaf. Many thanks.Greetings from London.
Beautiful fall colors Bonnie!
Margaret: I'm so glad you enjoyed them. I like the red leaf with curlecue shot too.
Calli: Glorious is a word I like to use for this season too!
Barbara: I was hoping some of you who live closer to the equator might enjoy shots of the type of colour show Autumn puts on for us in the far north. Of course, it is a harbinger of the cold, white, windy weather to come.
Dan: You are so welcome. Did you ever get to try out one of those Eisch wine glasses down there in wine country?
Wanda: Thanks, me too.
Prairie Girl: Manitoba does really get its share of extreme weather! Glad you enjoyed these photos from just down the TransCanada Highway.
Lorac: Thank you for noticing! I especially like the red leaves on the ground. Often they turn brownish once they are down for a while - so I was glad to get a shot while they were still red on the ground.
Delwyn: Yes, as you enter your Spring down under, we are in the prime of our Fall season.
Vicky: Not to worry. I take many shots to get a few I consider worthy of posting. Thank you for your comment.
Cuban: Greetings to you from Montreal. Well, my answer would have been, 'Yes!'.
Jayne: Why thank you!!
bonnie ~hello and many thnaks for sharing your beautiful autumn here, we do not begin this for another few weeks (Texas) so I am living an autumn day here...your blog is a lovely space ~ be well
really beautiful. i love the trees in the fall, blazing with color. thanks for sharing your view with us today. hope you have a wonderful weekend!
OH MY! Beauty overload! The colours, the light, everything! Delicious post- wonderful shots! Thanks you for brightening the day!
gorgeous! who needs words when the pictures speak for themselves.enjoy the season, Bonnie.
That's beautiful. Autumn is an amazing season.
Oh, Bonnie...these are marvelous! It is so good to see fall and I can just feel that warm sunlight knowing the air is cool..pretty awesome. In this neck of the woods, when it gets cool and the leaves start to change, the wind picks up blowing them all off the trees. We don't get to see those beautiful colors against the blue, blue sky like your shots. Thanks for the vivid "sense awakening" shots!
Gorgeous shots Bonnie...each one delightful. I'm hoping the weather holds this weekend so I can get out and about and enjoy the foliage. Perfect for walking off a big Thanksgiving dinner!! Happy Thanksgiving to you!
I love Quebec in the fall. We had the great good fortune to be there last year in late September. Just beautiful. Such wonderful pictures, Bonnie, thanks for sharing.
Oh! That RED! THAT RED! I could be warmed all winter if I could be surrounded by that RED!
Amazing photographs! This is why I LOVE fall!!! :-D
Absolutely stunning, Bonnie!!! I just love your photography and your art!!! It is all so exquisite! Enjoy the fall...it's beautiful as is your blog!!! ~Janine XO
Elk: Thank you for stopping by and leaving your kind comment. Hope you come again soon!
Brian: Thank you. Hope you have a great weekend too.
Linda Sue: Thank you - I think autumn is delicious too.
Friko: That's what I thought - any commentary would be superfluous. Thanks dear Friko!
Sylvia: My favourite.
Alicia: The vibrant colours really do awaken the senses, as you say.
Sherry Lee: Thank you. I read on your blog that you are celebrating today. For our family the celebration is tomorrow - our first as vegetarians - our first with no turkey. And.... not all of us are vegetarians.... so I will be making a big salmon filet. Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving too!
Nancy: You were all the way up here and we didn't get together?! What's the matter with us? Next time!
June: Well, come back here any time - find this post in the archives, surround yourself in the RED and feel warm. Thanks June!
Sammy-J: Thanks for stopping by and leaving your kind comment! Come again soon.
Janine: Thank you so much. Will be thinking of you and sending you good thoughts this week. XO
I love autumn, for the leaves, for the crisp air, for the beginnings, for the beauty with which we are eased to winter. Thank you for these images Bonnie. Happy Vegetarian Thanksgiving!
Such beautiful shots. As much as I love summer and grasp to it tightly as it departs, I find myself dearly loving the shades of autumn. You've captured some of the best right here.
Colorful splendor! Brilliant! Fabulous...! There aren't enough words... the pictures are fantastic!
Leslie: Thank you. Thanksgiving supper company just left. Vegetarian menu was only partly successful. Non-vegetarians missed their turkey with all the trimmings. Thanks for your good wishes.
Hilary: Thank you so much!!
Phoenix: Well the words you used were sufficient to convey your message! Thank you.
So beautiful, Bonnie :) I am still on vacation but I saw your beautiful pictures and had to stop! Thank you for sharing with us :DSee you when I return next week :D
Such beautiful colors and light – it is a joy for the eyes.
