Photos of Fall
Since I missed the last two weeks assignments over at 52 Photos Project; it’s time to get back on the bandwagon. We are home and starting to get caught up on our inevitable post vacation pile o work. This weeks prompt was: Autumn Colour, how very appropriate for Nova Scotia, and Toronto for that matter, at this time of the year. So without furthur ado here is my shot of choice:
I am actually really proud with how this shot worked out. We were walking in High Park and the shades of the trees were just amazing. This was just one of many, many wonderful pictures I managed to capture.
Here are a few more of my favorites, just for good measure:
“My leaves are turning crimson,” the giant oak tree said,
“It’s almost time these children should seek their winter’s bed,
But how they still cling to me and gleam with crimson hue,
They truly are more lovely than cirrus clouds of blue.
“And now throughout the forest – list! hear their voices ring,
But ’tis in tones of sadness and sighing they now sing –
‘Alas! ’tis gone, fair summer, and winter’s reign is near,
He cruelly strips the forest of all her summer cheer
By killing all her lovely leaves and likewise flowers gay
And driving all her fairy folk to homes of far away.'”
