 In which I wax redundant about the season we currently find ourselves in...

I know - I've said it already. I've already made it quite clear how I feel about fall. The rich colors, the slight chill in the air, getting jeans and sweaters out from their months of waiting, the fresh crispness, the smells, the breathtaking sights, the savory food favorites...

Can I just do this one last post about it? Just one more... I promise! This is it. Until next time. Because really, since when did I begin asking permission to write about something I love on my blog?!

On Saturday morning I woke up while it was still dark outside. My whole family was still asleep. I got dressed, grabbed my camera, and walked out the door, feeling very exhilarated. I picked up a friend, who shares my love of photography, and we headed to a 700 + acre nature preserve to capture some autumn photos in the earliest morning light.

A few pictures are worth a few thousand words, no?

Then let me present, autumn in Michigan (one last time).


























The end. (Maybe)

It's possible I just sat here staring at these photos for far too long. :)

For real. You have such a gift. This may be the last time I say that, but I'm not making any promises :)

Yes, beautiful! What brilliant colors! Michigan definitely has the edge on Iowa in the pretty tree department! (and a lot other departments too...blueberries!)
I love these pictures! You have a true talent for capturing God's creation...nature and little people!

Mama Belle said...

What great pictures!

Yeah, I know. Fall's my favorite too. But, since we live in the South, there are not many changing leaves here. Boo.

b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l!
God's creation is awe inspiring and you did a wonderful job of capturing it.

Lindsay said...

There are two of those in particular that I want to step into! The one with the shaded sidewalk meandering through the green/yellow trees, and the one with the one yellow tree. Fall does not look like that around here, sadly. Very sadly.

Your pictures are beautiful! I live in California, where fall never looks like this! :( So since I might be, just a *tad* jealous.. you can NEVER stop posting these! :)
