Seasons For The Gallery (Yes, of course I did Autumn!)


My love of Autumn has been well documented here on Thinly Spread. I have waxed lyrical about autumn walks, jamming, baking, making and snuggling in. Like Rachael at Tales From The Village I have been looking for the first sign of Autumn since mid Summer! My camera has been glued to my eye and I have files and files of photos of those glorious autumnal colours.

But it isn’t just the rich hues, the foraging and the making which makes autumn such a special time of year. It’s something in the quality of the light. It has a warmth and a depth which casts long shadows and encourages a relaxing of the soul. It is why we take the family on a special holiday at this time of year. It is waking up in the dark and standing at a window in dressing gown and slippers with hands wrapped round a steaming mug of coffee and watching the sun come up.

    • I just took those three as I was sipping my coffee. When Tara announced this theme I listed 45 Autumn tree/leaf/berry pictures I wanted to feature, then I downloaded these three off the camera and knew they were the ones!

    So lovely

  18. Hi, visiting from ‘The Gallery’ and, wow, what a breathtaking slideshow of images! I love that you’ve taken the three photographs from the same angle, but in vastly different conditions. The images instantly made me think of Monet and how he loved to paint the same scene over and over, but in different light. What a gorgeous place you live and such a beautiful view.
