blazing maple leaves
feathering the air
with garnet hues.

Fabulous post Lynn! Really brightened up my evening. Beautiful! 🙂
I appreciate hearing that. Bright they are, those maples. Thank you.
Wonderful! Fall really is the best season, we’re starting to think… Oh! Love the hummingbird butt. 🙂
Yeah, ain’t he cute? You have more color where you live, but we do have enough – just not surrounded by it to the same degree as you. I bet you’ve had some great days on the water lately.
Fabulous photos!! Loved everyone one of them. 🙂
Oh, good! Thanks for your enthusiasm!
Thank you –
Stunning shots of fiery autumn leaves!
Thank you, Hanne – I think the warm colors feel beneficial now, for us in the northern hemisphere.
I agree, indeed.
OMG! The colors and the stance of that hummingbird – your words and photos mesmerizing.
Working on the words, with the help of people like you out there… 🙂 Thanks!
Incredible shots ~ the Japanese Maple is so beautiful this time of year, and you capture their autumn elegance so well, both with the photography and your poetic words.
Japanese maples are amazing, aren’t they? And in winter, too when you see the branch structure. Thanks!
Oh so lovely! Both the poetry and the photosoved me. Thank you!!
Thanks so much!
Utterly delightful adding just the right touch to days turning ever more dreary.
No kidding! Time for color, right? 🙂
Thank you, Scott.
So vivid .. your photos and words Lynn !
Some lovely effects here within your images … gorgeous … here’s to a little more sunshine in November !
At LEAST a little more…:-)
Wonderful post, Lynn. Love the back view of the Hummingbird. 🙂
Glad you liked it – no zoom on that lens so I take what I can get!
Photos 9, 10 and 11…exquisite. I just love your eye, Lynn.
Always happy to hear from you! Its fun shooting into the water – it keeps moving so you’re not quite sure what you’ll get…like life I guess!
This gallery of photos and your words are really lovely, Lynn. That first picture is stunning, and some of those flower shots are so ethereal. They beckon you to come into another realm, of romance and whimsy. 🙂
Nice! I do like to beckon people to come and look at the wonders.
You’re on fire Lynn!
A good thing in November, eh?
I love the vibrant and intense colours you have captured. Such a beautiful time of year.
In its own way it really is a beautiful time. THank you –
Lyn, you paint such beautiful visions of poetry!
