Fall Fun

    1. I was really hoping the heavy energy in this park would not come through my images, Kamal. I’ve seen this park, once so filled with wildlife and filled with photographers, over the years go downhill. Management does not know what it is doing and the very same management is fear-based. I refuse to be around a lot of masks in a park. Other parks, most of them, people are SO happy and grinning, maskless. That is where I go. May you have a truly blessed day!! xo

    1. Thank you, Frank. Besides one of my babies going to the Rainbow last month and my neighbor collapsing and dying in his driveway last Friday, yes even despite those things and more, life is good and I’m all right. Hope all is well your way. xo

  2. Hi, Amy. Sorry to hear that park is no longer your favorite, but you still managed to get some beautiful shots. I find it interesting that you edit for a softer look in your pictures – I usually edit to get a sharper look in mine. Different eyes, different preferences, eh?

    1. Hi, CM. It’s so sad what has happened to this park over the years. It used to be packed with wildlife and photographers, but it has been grossly mismanaged. I know photographers like myself who are boycotting this park just for this fact alone. Despite this outing being not what I would have wanted, I did manage to find treasures. I’m headed out Chestnut Ridge way this week hoping that the colors south of here are more advanced. If you are on the hunt for colors, happy hunting!! SMILE! xo

      1. Looking forward to your Chestnut Ridge photos. I won’t be able to get out there for a couple of weeks – too much going on with family right now (all good stuff, though!). I have a daughter who just bought a house on 12 acres out in Wales, so I’m hoping to get there before the leaves are gone. She has her own trails!

    1. Rob, I was the MINORITY without a mask on and this park was jammed with people. I was shocked and the overall experience was awful. I’m not going back there! And thank you for saying I did manage to bring into my pictures the beauty and serenity despite the heavy energy found in this park. Bless you for encouraging me. Oh yes there certainly is divinity in this season as the colors explode!! Much love to you! xo

      1. I did and I read. This kind of stuff gets me going and boy oh boy my anger flares. I know, Rob, God help me, I know the criminal activity that has been going on. Too many are so blind but I’ve seen it from the start. I followed this blogger too. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Fantastic Amy… Well spotted so well camouflaged the Heron,… I am avoiding our town, its energy now feels dreadful, thankfully there are still places in nature to breatheeeee…..
    Beautiful colours Amy… I am always a little envious of you fall colours, they always seem so much richer and vibrant than those of ours here in England…
    Sending Huge hugs your way Amy….. Its raining here today hence time to sit on my PC and do a little catching back up with people…
    Much love my dear Friend ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. That Heron if he had not moved, I would not have spotted, Sue. I too am avoiding places that have the low dense energy as much as possible. My library I dread going to however and the only reason I go into that horrible energy is because I love reading books. Our Fall colors this year have been odd. Muted in most places and around where we live a lot of color with even bare trees have been noted while other areas the color is just beginning. I’m crossing fingers I hit the sweet spots this year. Sending huge HUGS right back at you with much love!!! xo

      1. Today the rain is running down my window pane Amy.. but even that, is doing good work, as we mucked a good portion of the plot and it is breaking it down to soak into the earth.. All things have purpose no matter how bleak they seem.. ❤ Much love right back Amy ❤

  4. Gorgeous photos Amy, yes the fall colors are just starting here, I have not found that spot yet that is completely filled with color. It is around here somewhere though. I will keep looking 🙂

    1. You are welcome, Wendi. I’m sorry too about the park …. it used to be my number one favorite. I have others to go to yet they do not have what this one does. However, I’m optimistic everything will work out perfectly. Much love to you! xo

  5. Amy, these are such wonderful vibrant photos. Good luck on your hunt for beauty in Red October ❤️🍂🍁 somehow I feel my friend this month (and season) will be one of huge changes on every level. I have no doubt you’ll capture many gorgeous scenes. Wishing you loads of love and sending warm hugs. xxxx

    1. Aw, thank you, Miriam! Red October …. thus far it has been! I agree with you about the “huge changes” yet I hold back so as not to be disappointed, as I have so many times. I’m trying to figure out where to go next to get some landscapes hoping my next park will be fantastic. Sending you mucho hugs and love, dear friend. (((HUGS)))!! xo

    1. Oh I am so happy you enjoyed these pictures!! Thank you for the encouragement cuz I honestly didn’t think they were “my best” and it was a struggle editing them. That usually does not happen. Where I go next I do not know but I’m sure my heart will direct me soon. I am doing as well as I can. Thank you! Much love to you! xo

    1. Tina, your compliment seriously meant a lot to me. I thought while I was editing that these images were not my best but your words made me smile. Bless you and thank you! The last two were taken with my long lens which I prefer. The others are taken with a lens IMO just too sharp for landscaping. I am going back to a lens (24-70mm) that makes my images softer looking for landscape shots. xo

  7. Hello lovely … oh isn’t it annoying when the light isn’t quite right! Although your photos look fabulous Amy .. such an array of wonderful bird life! And those autumn colours … sigh, my favourite season no doubt about that … x

    1. Yes, Julie, it is annoying when the light is not right and believe me I am choosy as any good photographer should be. When the light isn’t quite up to my liking I depend on my editing room to create the effect I desire. I wasn’t thrilled either with this lens …. just too sharp. I fussed a LOT which is not the norm for me in the editing room to get a more softer look. More posts to come of these fab colors. I’m really juggling too many balls right now and having only a small window for these colors has me running. Much love right back to you, another lovely. (smile) xo
