The Poetry of Autumn

“Autumn begins with a subtle change in the light, with skies a deeper blue and nights that suddenly become clear and chilled.  The season comes full with the first frost, the disappearance of migrant birds and the harvesting of the season's last crops.”
~ Glenn Wolff ~
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
  ~Albert Camus~
The sun declined, and we both fell into twilight silence. Night, which in autumn seems to fall from the sky at once, it comes so quickly, chilled us, and we rolled ourselves in our cloaks... 
~Jules Barbey d’Aurevilly~
I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.
~Henry David Thoreau~
Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.
 ~Faith Baldwin~
It looked like the world was covered in a cobbler crust of brown sugar and cinnamon. 
~Sarah Addison Allen~
Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” 
~Lauren DeStefano~ 
There's a crispness in the air that greets the morning sun, 
a feeling of anticipation, a new day has begun.
Harvest days are ending, winter is drawing near, 
yet in between is surely the most special time of year.
They call it Indian Summer, and it seems to fit the bill, 
for it's as if the Lord took a feathered brush and painted all the hills.
~Julie O'Connor~
Writing a 'big' post is the second prompt for the motivation blogging series and it was my idea to tell a story of autumn through photos I've taken. To promote this post there is a link from my personal FB page and the one that ties in with this blog.

  18. Lovely photos of autumn and I really like that quote that says that autumn is a second spring. Just the other early morning, after a rain, still dark outside....going to the curb with the garbage can....and it smelled and felt like a spring morning to me :)

  22. Isn't autumn inspiring? Your images are gorgeous and I love how you added the recipe to the apple crisp photo. You get much more red in your trees at this time - we get mostly yellow which is all gone now ...

  28. Your photos are so beautiful Judith!! I love the frosted leaves, and that one looking up the still water with reflections of trees. Such fitting quotes for all your photos too. I see you have tried the Cranberry Apple Crisp! I have saved that one too, and sure hope there are some cranberries left in our grocery store this weekend ;)

  37. Well, you certainly did a splendid job of sharing autumn through your photos! And I love that first quote about the light and the clarity … I think those are some of the things I most enjoy about fall, that it has a golden hue and a crystal clearness that you just don't see at other times of year!
