A final blast of colour

It’s official!  We made it past Thanksgiving without turning on our furnace.  The mornings have been frosty lately, but the afternoons have been so pleasant that our house has stayed quite comfortable.  However, the end is drawing near and their is even a chance of the “s” word on the weekend, so I thought I would give you one final blast of colour before my world turns white.  Enjoy :).

    Arriving back in Toronto on Saturday and driving to Georgetown on Sunday, up familiar country roads, there was a sudden awareness that autumn was upon us.

    Yuck on the s word

  4. Your photos are always wonderful! Mine are so grainy lately, I think it may be possible to forget what you have learned. I’ve lost my rabbits foot, but I love enjoying your great pictures.

    • Don’t worry, you will find it again :). There’s so much to remember about photography, and I have to remind myself of the basics all the time, but I never forget to have fun with my camera. Thanks for the wonderful comment!

    Not much color here this year so I love seeing yours! I am picturing you curled up in a cozy blanket with a cup of hot chocolate, reading a good book while your outside world turns white. Lovely.

    Autumn leaves look lovely, but to be honest I look forward to everyone’s snow photos from your side of the world, ’cause we don’t get snow in Melbourne and I no longer have a car to drive up to the Alps (where it does snow in winter).

    I find snow images interesting and I imagine they would be quite a challenge, especially photographing white things/animals on white backgrounds.

    • That’s it!! No snow – I’m moving to Melbourne :). One of the biggest challenge with snow photos is getting the white balance correct because usually snow photos come out with a bluish tinge. In some ways it gives it a cool effect, but it just doesn’t look natural. I’ll make sure I post lots of snow photos just for you this year so you can enjoy it vicariously through me :).

    I do love white photos.. so hurry up and have snow.!!!……. then we will get this damn summer that just doesn’t want to settle and arrive ….

  8. Autumn colours have yet to arrive here in our part of the U.K. all that green is hanging around for as long as it can….but without wishing time away we are looking forward to sharing the gold and reds of autumn. I bet you have some more autumn images to come

    Snow. Snow. Snow!!!! You know I love it. Send it here so the English will really hate me. Leaves are starting to turn here, but not much.

    I live in Pickering and there is still lots of green.

    • Hey Pickering, you’re not that far from me :). Unfortunately, I don’t think you are going to see much colour. Up here, the leaves seemed to fall before much colour hit them. Oh well, there’s always next year.

  11. We probably won’t see much snow before Christmas but it has happened that we have had a snowy December–it is still very mild in the most southern town in Canada (several towns and townships make the same claim–but I do not care–we are close to Point Pelee)

    I hope your mild fall lasts as long as it possibly can 🙂

    Only seen snow twice in my life, wouldn’t mind seeing it again.

    Thanks for this Cindy! With my limited mobility I see so few trees to mark the changing of the season & this is my favorite time of year to enjoy all the colors.

  15. Jeff Sinon says:

    Nice! Now bring on the white!!! 😀

  16. Coincidence: your phrase “a final blast of colour” reminded me that the text of a post I have planned for the end of the month includes the words “blast of yellow against blue.” You might say we both find nature to be a blast.
