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?

Keep Looking Up

The light was fading with the setting sun as I headed out late on my walk the other evening.

Much of the bright fall color had already been extinguished for the night.

And then I looked up, and noticed the top layer of someone’s burning bush.

The leaves, fiery red, were burning as brightly as I’ve ever seen them.


All I could do was smile.

Note to self: Keep looking up.  😉

Perspective

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!
