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.
And winter is not far behind :(.
We’ve already had a bit of that “s” word stuff….c cccold… lol!
Ewww!! I guess I should find my scraper/brush for the car :(.
Yes, get prepared and take care and enjoy what warmth you have..
I will and you too :).
Yuck on the s word
Double yuck 🙂
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.
Oooh, I like that picture :). We haven’t had as much colour as usual here this year either, but the warm temperatures have been wonderful! Now it’s time to curl up with a good book :).
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 ….
Hey my friend, don’t rush it :). I’m enjoying our mild Fall here! LOL
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
Actually, that’s it because most of the trees have lost their leaves now, and we could have snow any time. The colours this year were very disappointing – I hope you have better luck :).
I had been jealous for a short while of all the colour I thought you were enjoying. I guess we still have hope here that we will have a colourful autumn….we live in hope. Best wishes
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.
Now, now, you should be nice since you live there now LOL!! I wonder if you guys will have a poor year for colour too. That would be strange if it was the same way over there too.
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.
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)
We have usually had snow before now, so I am a happy camper this year :). When it starts to snow I’m coming to live with you :). Then when the snow hits you in December, we can both head to a tropical island ok?
it is a deal girlfriend! we will have such fun–the casino is only 30 miles away as is Chapters
Okey dokey 🙂
I hope your mild fall lasts as long as it possibly can 🙂
Thank you Suzanne, I hope so too.
Only seen snow twice in my life, wouldn’t mind seeing it again.
Wow, only two times in your whole life?!? I can’t even imagine that, although I don’t think I would mind not seeing it for a few years :).
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.
Oh, you are so welcome! I just wish I had more shots from this year to show you. Oh well, there’s always next year.
Nice! Now bring on the white!!! 😀
LOL – Nooooo!!!! I’m sitting here wrapped in a blanket wishing it was summer again :).
Oh no, the Canadian version of my wife 😛
Oooh, I like her already :).
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.
I like that 🙂
