That's My World Tuesday: Fall Unfolds in Slow Motion

This time of year with the dogwoods and a few other trees already getting their fall foliage while others are still green, it almost feels like fall is unfolding in slow motion.
I am savoring the season and enjoy spotting the small daily and weekly changes.
I am glad that we are having such good walking weather and that I am able to get out and enjoy it.

In a way it works out well for me to photo walk because I'm not feeling able to walk fast but if I stop and take pictures a lot I can manage to walk fairly far.

The photographs in this post are from two different walks (Thursday and Sunday).

I am mixing up the order so it's not like taking two walks with me, it's like walking for a few minutes then zipping ahead three day and then zipping back three days.

I have trouble picking which photographs to use because I'm taking so many.
There are certain times of year when it's almost funny how many photographs I take.
I'm looking forward to when we hit the peak in terms of fall foliage.

It will also be nice when the trees have all lost their leaves because I love shooting bare limbs against the sky.

There aren't any times of the year that don't have photographic opportunities but the heat of the summer is my least favorite time to be outside so good to see that go.

When I first saw the mallard ducks I thought they were leaves because they were balled up so tight.

this time of transition between summer vibrancy and fall explosion is just as magnificent.

it does seem the place is alive and not getting ready to "hibernate".

These are such gorgeous photos! You are definitely having a brilliant fall season...I would savor it too! We're still in summer in southern California! UGH!

Beautiful and very scenic lake with lovely colors of autumn.

I know the feeling of how hard it is to choose which photos to share! I think I'd enjoy walking with you. I can walk fast but I prefer to stop and take myriad photos. :)

Sylvia K said...

Fantastic captures of absolutely gorgeous places! How wonderful to be able to walk here and see the beauty! What a delightful part of your world, Carver! Hope you have a great week!

You have such beautiful areas for walking! Those slightly changing colors are so pretty! I can hardly wait to see how it looks when fall really takes hold of your location! :D

Hi Carver, So glad you're walking and photographing the transformations of fall. I really liked your watery shots from these two walks.

That's a lovely spot to walk. I like the stream flowing quietly over the rocks. Shale, slate? I'm not sure what they are but I like their form.

I enjoyed the photos of your walks. This is such a lovely time of year. Our foliage this year should be at its peak but it's not a great season for foliage. But we've some lovely weather this holiday weekend, and it's been nice getting out in it and taking lots of pcs!

Leaves on the first shot look like malunggay. What a beautiful series! I enjoyed my virtual walk. Thank you, Carver.

I can certainly relate to walking slowly and taking lots of photos....yesterday my husband was following me, and he almost tripped over me several times when I would suddenly HALT! He has really teased me about it today...This collection of shots is perfect. The way you captured the water is so beautiful, and I love the ducks.We are way ahead of you here in our part of VA. We will be at our peak in probably 2 weeks. Thanks for this great selection.Genie

I'm looking forward to the leaves changing to different shades of yellow, orange and red. It's the beautiful time of the year.

Unknown said...

Ebie said...

I love photo walks too, me with knee problem, stopping to rest at a great spot to take shots, is what I have been doing.

The place looks so alive with the changing colors of the leaves.

Not only photos, but time travel - the miracle of blogging. My favorite is the one with the trees in fall plumage reflected in the still water.
