Fill Your Tank

The colors have not quite reached their peak, they are muted, golden, dream-like.  This almost dull scape is in stark contrast to the fall light and brilliant sunsets.  I can look out my family room window and see an odd, almost red glow, and know that it is time to grab the camera and run outside, because what awaits is nothing shy of brilliant.  There are subtle changes from one day to the next.  The muted colors will turn vibrant and then all it will take is a good gust of wind and they will too soon be gone.  Now is the time to enjoy every picturesque moment; have a bonfire, roast a marshmallow, jump in the leaves before you clear them away, and sip on hot spiced cider.  Basking in these moments will fill your tank for the colder months ahead.

  1. We've had a beautiful northern MN fall.. Our leaves have just mostly dropped after a splendid suspense and peak.
    As I watched out the window, I called our blazing display the Color Feast. Before the famine, that is! Winter's monochrome will be here before we know it. I'm definitely filling my tank and appreciating these days of color and comfortable temps.
