Autumn in Ontario
The reflective view shows a slight ripples in the water as perhaps a gentle zephyr blows across the lake rustling the leaves, some floating silently through the air to the ground. I was told as a child if you catch a falling leaf you can make a wish. Not as easy as it sounds.
Maria asks the participants of this meme about Autumn light and the colours in our own countries. Like the card I think the best time to see the colours is on a blue sky day when they seem to sing. The light will start to slant as the year advances and the northern hemisphere tilts away from the sun, lighting things in a different way. For me the season has a rhythm of colour. One of the roads that leads into the town where I live is tree lined and those are the trees where the branches will start to change colour first, this year in August. For autumn's end I always visit the Rusland beeches, trees lining a twisting sheltered valley road whose colour will be vivid and are always the last to change colour in November. Autumn's encore.
