Guess who I found looking out the window this morning, captivated by the last of the beautiful autumn leaves?
Hoping that you are somewhere enjoying the splendors of autumn, too!
I was in the studio all morning, editing a slew of photos for our “Hats Off to the Horses of Old Friends” fundraiser that kicks off November 1st.
Every time I looked out the window, all Marmee and I could see was an uninviting, uninspiring landscape – gray, grim and damp.
So after lunch I grabbed my camera and headed to the marsh for a shot of color.
I found it in the marsh where a Great Blue Heron was standing watch…
I found color along stone walls covered with purple daisies…
And by the water at Mill Landing where the bittersweet is at its peak and the milkweed alive with its own seeds of change.
I found even more color along the edge of the woods where just enough light allowed me to catch some true leaf magic.
And in so many yards where I passed by, even the angels seemed in awe of the color that was popping all around them!
So even though it sure seemed like there was no color to be had on this gray autumn day…
Maybe all I really needed to do was … get up, get moving and change my perspective just a tad! 😉
Thanks for visiting me here at Images of Cape Cod, I hope you enjoyed the color as much as I did!
Between the humidity and the pile of work still in front of me, I won’t be heading out on a walk again this evening.
But look what I keep finding, just outside my own front door…
I soak it all up, like a hummingbird with nectar, and bring it right back into the studio to inspire me and feed my work.
Isn’t the creative life something??
You could smell rain at Mill Landing last night…
It was great seeing the rambling roses at their peak.
Have you ever noticed that colors seem even more intense when rain is on the way, almost as if everything is bathed in a kind of glow??
I was lost in the splendor…
‘Til someone reminded me it was time to head for home and fix some dinner.
