Afternoon Light

It’s mid November.  Surprisingly, the temperature is still mild, although if the weather forecast is correct, it will turn cold next week.

We’ve been having lovely weather lately.  Everywhere you turn is beautiful especially in the afternoon autumn light.  I’m currently loving autumn leaves.  When the light is lovely, I rush outside with my camera in hand and click on whatever catches my eye.

Let me share some photos with you.

My husband hang a bird-feeder outside our bathroom window.  It’s lovely to see the birds feed from it.  But I’m never able to capture it.  I think the birds know when I’m holding my camera or my phone as soon as they see it, they fly away.

The autumn afternoon sun amazes me.  Sometimes I just sit on the floor and watch it form shadows on the wall, or watch the way it beams from the window and explodes inside a room.  If I’m lucky it stays that way for more than a couple of hours before it darkens and everywhere you look it is gloomy.  Then without warning, the temperature drops and I feel the cold in my bones.  Thank goodness for warm, fluffy socks!  Days like these, I hold unto the small joys.

What about you? How’s your autumn going?

Autumn Photographs

It’s been a while since I took my camera out for a spin.  Did just that today.  It started out in the garden and then T, Doc and I decided to go over the neighbouring field for more photos.

Scenes from our garden:

Don’t you just love autumn photographs?
