It happens every August (actually if I'm honest, every June, but I am too shy to post about it at the beginning of summer): I begin fantasizing about the arrival of my favorite season, Autumn.
These photographs were taken last fall. I can't wait to get my camera out this year when the leaves start changing and the mist settles in over these little villages, farms, and wooded hills.
The first Autumn-themed magazines are popping up on the racks, getting me so excited and filled with anticipation.
Frost on fallen leaves, my breath puffing out in white clouds on early morning walks, baking apple pies and molasses cookies, blue fragrant smoke seeping out of chimneys, wearing sweaters and boots, walking down damp forest trails with Rafael in his carrier and the dogs examining the leaf piles and wood stacks, stooping down to pick up acorns and pinecones, and the melancholy caws of crows on foggy days. All things I am looking forward to.
What are your favorite things about fall?
