Don’t you just love the vibrance of RED?
And how about the luminence of yellow and orange?
Happy Fall, Ya’ll!
(and Joe – I swear I’d taken these before you started your incredible Wonder of Autumn series. Blogger friends – if you haven’t seen that series, please visit The Visual Chronicle)
Thank you so much, Mike. I haven’t seen near enough red to suit me, so I grab it when I can
I was just remarking to Bob that I love that certain time of the afternoon when the sun backlights the fall color, and here you are with that very thing! So beautiful, Laurie!
Thank you Lynda. So glad we were in sync 🙂
Gorgeous colours Laurie! I’ve been admiring Joe’s series too – his last one was my favourite! 🙂
He’s quite the photographer, isn’t he? Have a good weekend, Pauline. I’m off to a women’s weekend on the river … food, drink, games, laughs!
Someday we’ll get you over here for the same 🙂
Red is my favorite color! Beautiful pics. 🙂
There’s just something about red, isn’t there? Thank you!
So glad you like! Have a great weekend!
Lovely! I hope that you are having an awesome fall.
I’m loving it … the cool temps invigorate me (I know others don’t feel the same). Enjoy your weekend!
I’ve always loved the fall colors but we didn’t have much in the way of reds this season…! I don’t mind fall it is what it leads to that I dislike… 😉 enjoy the weather!
I do know the coming season can be rough for those of you further up north. and I agree, there wasn’t as much red for my taste!
lol…to be honest it is only rough for me because as I get older I dislike the snow and the cold more and more…when younger I skated, did cross country skiing snowmobiling, ice fishing, walked on the lake and absolutely loved it! Now give me a beach, a chair, a glass of wine and sometimes a book and I’m good to go… 😉
This is partly why I love autumn so much–the eye-dazzling colors! Your photos capture it!
Autumn puts on quite the show 🙂
Your photo’s are the essence of fall and I’m envious of all the glorious colour. I especially enjoyed your second photo. When life springs from a fallen tree and give you this kind of view, well that makes my heart glow. Nothing ever truly dies away. It fades and losses lustre but just like people, the beauty is still within.
Thank you, K! I just love the fall season and it’s colors!
The time is going by so fast! My favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is not that far away and I’m so looking forward to hosting family and friends. My son and I have traveled the past 7 years so i’ll be hosting for the first time in over 7 years! Fun, fun, fun!
I know you’ve already celebrated your Thanksgiving. I’m guessing it’s all about Christmas for you now? Or is there a Canadian holiday I’m forgetting about?
You’re right LB. Just hung a few Christmas lights yesterday. We generally wait for the first of December to turn them on but I might get them on before then. Glad you get to stay home this year. I’ve heard that’s the busiest time in the US to travel.
I”ve been seeing SO much red/orange this year…. I have some reds coming soon. (smile) Great shots, Laurie!! Thank you for sharing them. Love, Amy
Amy, it’s funny because I feel like I haven’t seen near enough red (then again, I can never have enough red 🙂 ) Thank you, Amy, for your always enthusiastic replies, especially when you’re so busy!
I’m about pulling my hair out right now. I’m trying to calibrate my new laptop (colors) and I’m at the point of getting help. My colors don’t look the same compared to my iPad. I KNOW I am working with two different screens. But I need something close so my work is consistent. Oh, Laurie, I’m really struggling today. Love, Amy
A reply to this comment went along with a reply to your comment on another post. Was so sorry to read of your struggles!!! Wish I could have helped somehow, Amy.
I really am OK today, Laurie. Everything just caught up with me yesterday. Good thing I really LOVE photography. 🙂 (((HUGS))) and thank you again for your kindness. xxAmy
So very glad to read this message! Good luck with all the new technology! ❤
I’m still grrrrrr’ing. Laurie, IF I told you ALL that has gone wrong since I broke my Passport and lost 14,000 pictures, it would have made a lesser woman throw her hands up and say I QUIT! Now the latest the color calibration tool I bought is broken, brand new mind you. Yep. So, I called this morning to get a replacement, and IF this one does not work, I am buying another brand. Just wow! (((HUGS))) Amy
Oh my gosh I can not believe you lost all those images!! Devastating! Good luck with the new equipment.
I’ve been following Joe’s series as well. You’ve both done a spectacular job capturing the vibrant colors of nature this time of year. Kudos. I could look at them all day.
Oh thank you Alys! I was able to capture some color this past weekend – gorgeous Japanese Maples in reds and oranges. Coming soon 🙂
Ah, now you are beginning to glean what I have been through. And what I told you are only a few things. I have ONE MORE OPTION to try to get to my photos which means using a recovery program that calls up deleted images right from my camera disk. Yep. The breaks, the losses, the ineptitude regarding companies I have dealt with, the frustration of brand new breaking (the color meter is not the first thing “new” that broke), my AF on my camera broke (now fixed with the help of Canon) …. and it goes on. Never, Laurie, have I ever experienced so much trouble with technology. I also keep getting thrown off the internet when using my iPad. I am to the point that I ask …. Um, WTF? Yep, I have gotten to that point. Today: It is cold and lightly snowing. I am dressing very warm, and going back to that magical place I shot the recent images that are up at Petals. I have more of those coming for next week. So even being out ALL my work for this past year, I have been busy shooting, mostly MF, now with AF (FIXED!) with my landscape shots. I go for Balance today in a place of magic. Love, Amy
OOPS. Wrong place. This comment goes under your last one to me, Laurie. Sorry about that. Love, Amy

I love the autumn colors. I’m missing them this year and begged my sister to try to get some photos for me. I didn’t realize I’d see so many friends here too. I’ll come by more often. The autumn red makes you want to start a roaring fire in the hearth and toast your toes. Beautiful.
Thank you so much for visiting Life on the Bike here in Southwest Virginia. I just visited your blog and realize that I have no idea where in the world you are blogging from (and you may not want to say). Either way, your roaring hearth fire sounds so great! I love fall!!
I’m living in Portland, Oregon area now but here in California helping my son get ready to sell and move. I loved that part of the country even though I only drove through. Lived in New Jersey for a few months. I wish I could ride a bike. Mine has to be stationary. 😦
Ka-blam! Look at that colour! So much fun, Laurie. 🙂
We sure saw some fabulous color this fall. Eye catching!
Thank you, Crystal!
