Today is the first day of autumn! Yay!
This weekend I was invited by a very special friend to go on a walk with our cameras in tow to capture the sights along a country road in the glorious autumnal light of late afternoon.
It was a beautiful afternoon...blue skies and a slight breeze...we love the autumn, and this was a perfect way to celebrate its beginning! We're both posting our captures so that you can see the 'whole' picture!
This little spider was quite the acrobat!
she deftly moved from one perch...
She wasn't the only thing that was literally suspended in thin air!
There are many things that define the transition from summer to autumn.
The change in the light is the most striking.
The sun casts a lovely warm glow
that seems to intensify all the colors in the spectrum.

Look at that blue sky!! Awesome!
Don't be fooled. Nature isn't quite done with these leaves just yet.
They still have a purpose.
This little spider was hunkered down, sound asleep
in her leafy cradle.
The colors of autumn are just beginning to emerge.
the orangey-red of the leaves,
and the red ladybugs playing in the last of the white Queen Anne's lace.
Sunset came too fast. Our walk came to an end. But, we have a plan to return to catch the morning light and see what we can see!
I hope you enjoyed seeing our walk through my eyes! Please go see the beauty that Tina captured through her eyes.
Happy Autumn everyone!!! I hope your season is filled with brisk days and blue skies, steaming cocoa with whipped cream, hearty soups, crisp apples and sweet pears, beautiful leaves spiraling about your feet, warm woolies to keep the chill out, and all things that bring Autumn Joy to your hearts!
A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature.
