Swan River Reeds Wave Hello to Autumn

This is such a familiar view here on the Cape where the road opens to a view of the salt marsh…


Swan River, on Upper County Road near Hart Farm and Clancy’s Restaurant is one of my favorite spots in autumn for such a view.

And it’s all about the reeds.


Seeing them standing so tall against the backdrop of a changing palette of autumn colors, waving to and fro, backlit by the sun…

You can almost hear them as they’re swaying, saying…


“Hello fall, welcome autumn!”

Stage Harbor Light – Autumn Attire

I love our Cape lighthouses during all four seasons.

But perhaps most of all when they are garbed… in autumn attire.


There’s just something about the conversation between light and color, this time of year. ❤

Fields of Gold, Cape Cod Style

I love our “fields of gold” in autumn.

Especially down at Mill Creek.


Here.


On Ole’ Cape Cod.


Thank you, Mill Landing, for your amazing beauty….

May we always protect you.

For our wildlife – and future generations – to enjoy.   ❤

Autumn Wind in Their Wings

Mill Landing is one of my favorite destination spots when I’m out on one of my walkabouts with the camera.

I love nothing more than coming down the hill late on a fall afternoon, and looking back at Taylor Pond all decked out in golden yellow and russet orange.


I never know who I might see flying right toward me.


Or spot through the trees just upstream…


Scratching for some supper.


It’s a magical place;  the most magical in the fall.

For as the Canada geese wend their way up the Creek to Taylor Pond for the night I always pause…

And I listen —


For the sound of the wind in their wings.  ❤

A Tiny Robin and Me

Seeing some of the last autumn leaves now in the marsh.


Yet this tiny robin was singing his little heart out the other evening at sunset, oblivious to winter’s steady approach.


Perhaps he likes winter… almost as much as me?
