Our World Tuesday - Its Autumn

Its been a while coming, but I think it may well be autumn - possibly early winter by the number of scarves and hats I saw on the way home from work!

Autumn is a dynamic sort of season.  Falling leaves, blustery storms, maybe even an early frost or two. But it can also have days of stillness and light - the last effort of a summer unwilling to give up just yet.

Without trying to sounding too serious this combination of movement, colour and stillness is what I tried to create in these pictures.    My daughter was all too willing to rush through the leaves and generally mess about.  I rather like the outcome.  All comments appreciated!






You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  Enjoy the pictures.

Nice! She's a whirlwind in the leaf pile. Did you do these shots with a tripod? Were you focused on the leaves or your daughter? I think they're cool and unusual shots.

What fun - I love how you captured her motion in the photos with the long exposures. It's finally summerlike here today.

She is a wonderful ghosting little whirlwind indeed! Oh the fun of childhood and playing in autumn leaves and getting buried in them . . . ah yes, I remember it well . . .

Nice pictures Stewart.
Here it is spring, but it seems autumn 13 degrees, too cold for the time of year.

Delightful pictures of one with lots od energy. I like Autumn too--and I like the day when Summer just won't let go. We are in late Spring or maybe we are having an early summer here. Sunshine and warmth. MB

Fun photos, Stewart!
Playing in the leaves is one of our favorite Autumn pastimes.
(In October, here, of course!)
