My favorite time of day is just before sunset. The sunlight makes Nature's colors intense, and as the sun moves closer to the horizon, the colors change rapidly. Sometimes it seems that a spotlight is moving, drawing my attention to different spots of nearby scenery. What had been obscure shines brightly but briefly. When the autumn leaves are full of color, the spotlight makes one group of leaves after another glitter. I saw and enjoyed this when I was out walking late one afternoon last week, but I regretted that I did not have my camera with me. The next day, luck was with me. The sky was clear and the sun was bright. I took my camera and returned to the trees about an hour before sunset, and I was rewarded with a fast moving light show. I snapped pictures like crazy, knowing that the scene would not be exactly the same twice. I'm glad that I did, because the next day the weater changed. We had two days of wind and rain, and most of the very brightly colored leaves blew down.

I'd like to share a few of my pictures with you.

I love your photos! They bring me where I need to go...I don't know about anyone else, but I'm really needing this Thanksgiving break, some time to enjoy autumn.

I'm glad that you enjoy my small portraits of autumn.  They are in marked contrast with Emily's photo of snow in Alaska, which was taken at about the same time.
