Color, reflected

Where water meets earth meets sky
Laval, QC, October 2009

It's been a gloomy week of nasty surprises around here, and as I look at my writing, I realize my words have been reflective of my mood. Not good, but it is what it is.

To counter the murk, I thought I'd grab some of the more colorful scenes I've viewed through the lens in recent weeks. A mere photo can't change anything that's happened, or the scenario that's left in its wake, but it can at least provide a quick moment of light to slash through the darkness. For now, that'll have to be enough.

Your turn: Seen any good fall colors this week? Do tell.

One more thing: This photo supports this week's Thematic theme, leaves. I realize I'm stretching it a bit - these are but reflections. But when you think about it, all photos are reflections to begin with. Head over here to share your own.

This ought to be a jigsaw puzzle Carmi. I love how the disturbed surface of the water gives it that Monet-ish look.

Fall round here is one of those things you might miss if you oversleep. And given my daily battles with the snooze button, I miss a lot of it. But I did manage to snag a little splash of the color over the weekend. What there was of it.

And a bit more leafy, but hardly autumnal was this scene.

That's stunning!! It qualifies in my mind.

Over here in Wisconsin, the leaves are all on the ground. It is turning brown already, but a couple of weeks ago it was beautiful driving through the beautiful trees on a sunny day. I must say it has not been the best year for color around here though. Things were not as bright and beautiful as in years past. But I love this time of year and try to get outside as much as possible to enjoy it.
