Technically I’m amazed what exposure ranges a DSLR nowadays can handle. Emotionally I won’t let go the leafs, what certainly happens soon – but luckily, and even more certain, they’ll come back next year.
Finally, burning leafs are here again.
How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days. ~John Burroughs
I guess my maple will loose it’s leaves soon because of the already frosty nights. But sunshine today, hope to take some autumn shots.
Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter. ~Carol Bishop Hipps
Autumn announces itself now with falling leaves, golden trees and smooth daylight. Scenes from a local playground.
Another brittled one. I like the autumn colors so much, they emit such a serenity and one calmed down after a walk in the autumnal silent forest or park.

I have received a DeviantArt Daily Deviation for this image
Like a joy on the heart of a sorrow, the sunset hangs on a cloud;
A golden storm of glittering sheaves, of fair and frail and fluttering leaves,
The wild wind blows in a cloud.
Hark to a voice that is calling, to my heart in the voice of the wind:
My heart is weary and sad and alone, for its dreams like the fluttering leaves have gone,
and why should I stay behind?
Autumn Song by Sarojini Naidu
Today we made a walk through our autumnal forest. The weather was nearly perfect (20°C and sunny), and it was a totally relaxing day. My son has collected about 5 tons (estimated, obviously I had to carry all of them) of chestnuts, and I have a sense of foreboding that I have to dispose withered 4,999 tons of them in a few weeks ;).
