    1. YAYAYAYAY!! So happy you could “feel” the rush, Shruti! This Autumn is turning into quite a delight. I believe tomorrow will be THE day that I to go to another park. If I don’t get this right, the colors won’t be as good as they could be. I did have a lovely and blessed day. Hope you had one too! Much love to you! xo

  1. Whoa Amy!! Mother at her most spectacular!! You totally caught the best of colors and WOWED us with their brilliance!! Absolutely gorgeous, I love the fall just for this reason. The trees have a lovely smell too – almost as if their colors are blossoms! The forrest is a lovely place to be this time of year – thanks for allowing me to take that journey with your photos! Much love, Donna

    1. I know, right? I am SO excited to go to yet another park where there is nothing but Oak Trees and the vision of them when they are fully in color is beyond words!! This week I’m going there! And I have so many pictures yet from Sunday to show. This is the time of year I feel like I was in the starting gate ready ready ready and when that gate opens OH I am running! LOL I agree about the smell. It is intoxicating!! Those who choose to wear masks are missing out on so much, sad to say. I too love the Fall due to the colors and the smells but I’m not too fond of the cold to follow. Perhaps this year I will fall in love with Winter. LOL Been saying that now for what(?) 3 years. *sigh* Miracles do happen!! Much love back atcha!!! xoxo

    1. Not strange at all, Rob! The “energy” on that day was mystical, otherworldly, powerful, mind-blowing. I LOVE that picture you speak of. It pulls you right into an adventure. It prepares the traveler for the explosion to come!! Thank YOU so much for saying something about this particular picture. I stood there for a long time seeing the effect and the infinity aspect of this scene along with the colors all about me. My heart soared in excitement! Much love to you, dear friend. xo

    1. Aw, thank you, Gabriela! What joy you give me knowing how affected you were when you viewed these colors. Yes, YES I see heaven on this earth not only with my lens but with my eyes as well. And that is where I keep my eyes focused and then that is what I LIVE. Sending you much love in return!! xoxoxo

    1. Thank you, Kamal!!! The colors depending on where you go, are mind boggling! I plan on going to another park this week, perhaps even tomorrow. I hear snow is coming this weekend and I just want to get my hunting for colors before that happens. Bless you today! xo

    1. Shweta, you are so very welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by to enjoy this! Truly there is nothing in comparison to experience this in person. I wish I could somehow bring the “senses” as in smell and hearing into the equation. (smile) Much love to you! xo

    1. I love the forest in the Fall too, Erika. Was just in one today but I don’t think I will return. Carrying my heavy equipment while hiking up and down hills, just not fun for me anymore. I’m going back to THIS park where these pictures were taken probably on Sunday hoping this time the trees will be in full color. I’m trying to figure out how to get through the mountain of comments here, get out to take all these pictures, blog, and then LIFE on top of that. Whew!! If you come up with any brilliant ideas let me know. LOL Much love to you! xo

      1. I am sorry, I don’t have a solution. If I had one, I would be more present. Too much coming together and I am running on the edge of the possible for weeks if not months. I am working two jobs, a pretty taxing employed one and self-employed, reorganizing my business incliuding developing and producing skin care products, developing a whole new website, developing layouts for several print material, managing a family, household and big garden, and on top of it, I am in the end spurt of the first year of my education (exam ahead). I am only functioning. But thank God, all the big family events this year, like my husband’s and my 50th birthday party, my youngest son’s 18th birthday party, and my uncle’s 80th birthday event are already behind me…. All caused a lot of time to organize the events… Now you know, why I am showing up so rarely and don’t blog like I used to for so long🥵

      2. WOWOWOWOW!! Your life sounds like mine!! We both are on the fast track! I’ve been trying so hard to blog yet my posts have really picked up and I just don’t seem able to get ahead with all the comments. I cannot be here, out with my cameras, putting posts together and keeping up with LIFE (too much!) all at the same time. Wishing you all the best, Erika. I know how weary I feel these days. God love ya!! xo

      3. I knew you can relate, Amy. I decided to cut off time of my blog temporary. I don’t like it but it was the fadtest way to make at least a bit room for all the other things I cannot just push aside. But I cannot blame anyone but me. I simply underestimated the effort and that everything is piling up between August and Oktober. I hope, I learned my lesson, eventually💁🏻‍♀️
        Sending you the biggest hugs and a whole package of strong nerves💖

    1. Your words have motivated me to go back to this forest this coming weekend to get more shots like the first one you speak of and to another park as well. I was at a park today and due to being sacked by life lately, it was just too darn hard to hike with all my heavy equipment. I require “easy” right now and I know exactly where to go. Prag, I have got SO many pictures I wish wish wish I could show them all. I will do my best to get as many posted as possible. SO glad you are enjoying my Fall series. Much love to you! xo

      1. I absolutely absolutely enjoy the glimpses that you bring. i am so glad you will be back with more like the first one.
        This wouldn’t a change a thing about how much I appreciate your work, still I want o share that you are actually giving me a glimpse of fall magic at my desk as I have been home bound for a month now and am unsure when I will go out on any walks soon. All is well yet this is what my body needs currently, to stay in. So there might be an extra layer of what a gift you are bringing to me 🙂

      2. I’m so sorry you are home bound, Prag. That would be hell for me. I NEED to be outdoors and this is why Winter is so difficult for me. I’m honored that I can bring the outdoors to you while you are at home. Thank you for telling me. I will remember your words as I keep creating additional Fall posts. God bless you, dear friend!! xo

  3. These are amazing Amy, I cannot get used to the colors you guys have over there. ‘Downunder’ has mostly evergreen type tree’s so we never get colors like this in our ‘fall’, and to see this is beautiful. Don’t get me wrong there are many tree’s that do this in people’s yards and council areas, but they are little bursts (and appreciated all the more when seen), but you guys are ‘blown away’ by entire forests alive with all these colors. I’d forget to take photo’s being mesmerized by all the beauty xoxo 😂 🤣 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. Now to hear your enthusiasm and your inner child was SO worth posting these pictures, Mark. I was entranced! Amazed! Taken to another world! I’m lucky I didn’t get a crick in my neck from all the craning I did! LOL I cannot wait to go to another park where I’m hoping to catch the colors there! I believe it is THIS week where I’ll find the best colors. I wish I could somehow have the smells on this post as well ….. oh, Mark, there is nothing like walking on crunching crackling leaves and smelling what those leaves smell like. There is nothing else like it. Mother is outdoing Herself this year! It’s as though She is shouting Victory …. Love has won! Stay tuned, dear friend. More color on the way!! Much love to you! xoxo

    1. LOL I laughed with delight when I saw your exclamation WOW! You are so so welcome for me sharing, Miriam. I’m running so hard these days in an attempt to get those colors to bring here. Whew!! I’m buried under comments and then trying to figure out how to create more posts while I’m running after those colors, taking care of my many not feeling well cats, keeping up with the house and dealing with life. 😳 Does that spell it out to you? LOL Sending you so much love right back at you!!! xo

  4. That certainly is bright! Your autumns are so much brighter than ours apparently, because the minerals in your soil produce brilliantly coloured leaves on the trees that absorb them. Or so I read in a newspaper article.

    1. I have no idea why they are so bright, John. I believe it is partly from the decreased numbers of hours of sunlight and the increasingly colder days. I’ve never heard about the minerals in our soils contributing to the change of colors. How interesting.

  5. Oh my favorite time of year Amy, the explosion hasn’t quite made it here yet. It is close though. Is it not the most precious site, the changing of the season. Autumn to me warms my heart through my eyes, preparing the heart for the next season with excitement.

    1. The explosions are spotty this year, Sandra, which is making it difficult for me to hit an area just right. Went to a park yesterday which I will not be returning to due to the difficulty of hiking the large hills. Someone told me it was peak out there …. wrong! So, back to this park where you see colors hoping that this time the trees will be fully in bright colors. Pictures I got yesterday yes good. So lots to choose from which is how I like it. The sights and the smells and the air freshness …. the crunching and crackling of leaves underfoot …. now that is heaven!! I’m not nuts about winter and doing my best to fall in love with the season. LOL Maybe this year? xo

      1. Yes Amy, mostly for me is the smell, the forest and the trees are so unique and refreshing, And once the colors reach the point of where your photos are, one windy day and they are all gone. Now if snow would disappear with one windy day, that would be great. 🙂

      2. I agree about the snow …. it just is around TOO long, darn it. Hope to get one full forest of color this weekend then I can cool it for a while. I’m committed to bring to many Fall unlike what they know Fall to be. It’s challenging! But I’m doing it! xo

      3. You have taken care of the fall blast photos and of so beautiful. We are camping this weekend, but the colors are just not here, most of the leaves have dropped already, but it is still fun to walk in the woods on the crunchy leaves and smell the pine trees. 🙂

      4. Sorry to hear about the “no color” situation. It’s been a real challenge to find the colors here, Sandra. Not sure what is happening this year but man o’live it’s been spotty to say the least. Have fund camping!! Lucky you!! xo

  6. I can definitely feel the love, Amy! Absolutely breathtaking. My, my, my! I cannot get over how beautiful these scenes are. Oh, how I’d love to be taking those hikes with you in awe and reverence to the beauty of nature surrounding us. Whew, stunning!

    Since the colors around here are not changing in the way they ordinarily would, seeing Fall through your lens is a true gift. Thank you for sharing this beauty with all of us, dear Amy. I do pray that you are getting enough rest and enjoying the view a bit too! ❤

    1. Holly, the colors are not changing as they normally do here either. It’s been a lot of work and effort on my part to find those pockets of color where they are bursting. It’s been a very odd Fall. Perhaps Mother is seriously weary of all the heavy energy and She is not able to put forth what it takes to bring Her trees into full glory. I don’t know. Many trees are just dropping their leaves. Others, are muted in color instead of bright. I have one more place to go with hope that I will catch the FULL color in a forest. It will happen sometime this week.
      I’m so thrilled you are enjoying my Fall series. I “feel” your enthusiasm right through your words. (smile) Know I have done quite a bit of running in order to obtain the glory I know Mother is capable of. Thank you for praying that I am getting enough rest. Finally finally I feel rested after days of exhaustion. May your day be blessed and filled with so much love!! BIG (((HUGS)))xo

      1. BIG hugs right back to you, my friend. ♥️ For those unfamiliar with photography, it can be a ton of work for that one perfect shot. We see a moment but it was many moments that made it so great. I’ve had the pleasure of being close with two professional photographers and it is an art. No doubt about it. Thank you for all you do to keep us awed with nature.

        I agree with you about this Fall too. The changes in our climate, both literally and figuratively, have definitely caused a ripple effect on our beautiful surroundings as well. It has been heavy indeed! Sending my love and peace straight to you!

      2. Holly, for your recognition of what goes on behind the scenes in regards to a photographer, I am deeply grateful to you. Bless you!!!
        To counteract the heavy, stay light. xoxo
