Autumn Moods

Heavy rain clouds alternating with bursts of sunlight created many different moods this evening.

The orange golden flames of maple trees light up the landscape

I follow this winding country road

savoring the play of light on the canvas laid out before me

As the clouds swallow the sun,

they cast a purple hue across the land.

A final glimpse of sunlight on the mountain, then evening descends.

  9. Beautiful Annette, as always. Among all of them I love the first image the most. So than coming from Germany , you really have 4 seasons where you live, that is so wonderful, less home sickness I guess? Have a great weekend. Cornelia
