Autumn is just around the corner and I’m excited. I won’t be able to travel to the hot spots for aspens and maples in other states but hope to make a couple excursions to near-by locations. If I will be blessed with a handful of stunning images I will call it a good season.
What is it about autumn that is so captivating? So refreshing? So peaceful? Is it the gentle drizzle saturating the colors or perhaps the quiet whispers of a breeze among the leaves? I know that as I walk among the trees and fill my lungs with the sweet aromas I come alive and quietly smile.
Is it a connection to life, the hope of a glorious season before the final chapter? Perhaps. I just know that for me, it is breathtakingly intoxicating. I wish it lasted for months or that time slowed down….
The images illustrating this post bring back fantastic memories of my wife and I walking in Washington, D.C. admiring the trees and of course the stunning architecture and history.
I still plan to do a whole writeup on that experience, sometime, someday…maybe this autumn.
Yes, I’m truly looking forward to this season just around the next bend. I can already hear the leaves rustling, inviting me to join them, camera in hand….
