Thematic Photographic 216 - Fall colors

Nature's paintbrush
London, ON
October 2012

I've chosen fall colors as this week's theme because, well, it's fall, and for most of us it's getting pretty colorful out there. Although I've started things off with an admittedly cliched perspective of the season, I hope we'll use the coming week to explore the full range of color-based themes. Perhaps it's an absense of color, or a tone, or something that remotely evokes autumn. And if you're in the southern hemisphere, I'm sure you'll find even more creative ways to share. Whatever it is, please feel free to take this theme wherever you'd like.

Your turn: Post a photo that supports this week's theme to your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share in the photographic nuttiness that is Thematic Photographic, our weekly photo sharing activity. Feel free to add as many entries as you'd like through the week, and we always encourage new folks to join in. If you're new to all this, click here for more background. Enjoy...and thanks!

My first thought was that this challenge was 'impossible' for me in the midst of rampant spring... but some brilliant orange photos soon 'jumped' out at my eyes... href= "http://kiwinomad06.blogspot.co.nz/2012/10/tp-216-autumn-colours.html"

It was a good weekend around my parents place for fall photos ... leaves just starting to turn, but no sooner the wind will come and blow them away. Here are a few of mine.

Alas, with it being Spring here in Australia, we only have 'Spring' colours... I am off to Floriade in the Nations Capital, Canberra on Saturday, so stay tuned!!

Pat Tillett said...

Nature's paintbrush indeed! She is darn good with it also...
Nice photo Carmi...

I discovered that it's possible to find fall colours in spring - here's my selection.

Cliché? Hardly. Traditions are always in season, and October would be so plain without the golds, reds, oranges, browns... of autumn.

And without a bit of sweet and sticky humorous horror ;-)

I'll have a post each day for the rest of the week, because fall is my favorite time of year and, well, I have so many pretty photos I want to share! Hope that doesn't sound egotistical...

I'm back! I visited the Scioto River Park in downtown Columbus to see if I could find more color than I did the first time around.

I did.

Also, egrets and herons and more.

Today was just too darn wonderful not to capture live in all it's glory and bring it here to close out your fall colors! Go autumn- actually no don't go...stay....please!
