Fall is the conduit between the carefree days of summer and the harsh regiment of winter. In a lovely and gracious manner, autumn brings the message that fun cannot last forever. The colours are a sign that endings can be beautiful, and that the drabness in the months to come are only temporary.
I hope you enjoy these pictures taken on my regular walks, as I snap pictures with my "little puppy," Snowball and my Panasonic Lumix bridge camera. All are from the Traverse Bay area.
One thing I have noticed is that the colours of the trees are radiant and shine with luminance of their own. When the sun shines as well, the effect is glorious! With all the clouds lately, I was waiting for a sunny day to get the best possible light.
The interesting thing about the forest is that there is always new growth right alongside of the old. You see baby trees and old trees dying. What a diverse community. One of the things we miss in our society is that young people are often cut off from old people, unexposed to their wisdom and tempering influence.
The woods have all ages. There is no discrimination here. The poorly dressed and the richly adorned all share the space.
