There is no denying it.....

There is no denying that fall is on its way. Who would want to? I love spring, and I love parts of summer, and I still have a childish glee come over me when it starts to snow. But I dearly love fall. I love it when the days are crisp and clear and the clouds floating big and bold in the sky, and the feeling you get of how nice a fire would be.
Or to walk into the kitchen on those days when you have the smell of a pot of soup drifting through the house. Though I admit I like soup any time, any season, it is just a bit more lovely when the days turn cool. In the fall it is a joy to bake something and enjoy the heat it creates having the oven on.
Then there is the actual beauty of the colors changing...I never tire of photos of the autumn leaves. These were taken late this evening...I had to have my ISO set at 1600 to get these. I want to go for another drive in better weather.
It rained a big portion of the day here. Huge puddles were every where for a while. It was almost like pouring water out of a bucket part of the time. It thundered so bad it really shook the house...I unplugged everything for most of the day. I did plug it back in for a few minutes once...but was afraid to leave them plugged in. Even though I have surge protectors, I just didn't want to risk losing anything.

Reading this post almost made me want autumn to be here -- but not quite. I do like autumn -- it's a gorgeous season in this part of Tennessee -- but autumn is followed by winter and I'm just not ready for that. I like your great pictures.

It's too early.....I don't want fall yet, because then winter is right behind! I do like the cooler temps and the beautiful trees, so I'll be ready when it gets here!

I love autumn too. Actually, I like all the seasons. LOL I just happen to like summer (if it's hot, hot, hot) the least, although I LOVE the flowers.

Nice shots, You must have held your camera very steady at ISO 1600.

A beautiful series that well illustrates the transition from summer into the crisp, fall months. I love the autumn light that gets golden in the later afternoon making everything take on a different look. Fine post.

Rose: We still have a ways to go but things are chaning. The tomatoes are a little less sweet on the vine. My Ohio Buckeye tree is more interested in nuts then leaves.

Fall is my favorite season, but I don't know how I feel about it coming on in August. I would like an Indian Summer or an extended fall, but not an early winter!

Lovely red leaves Rose! I love autumn too - sweater and fireplace weather set in but I have to side with the others that winter follows all too soon and I'm not ready for that. :)

Fall is "It" for me, too. I love the weather, the color, and most of all the feeling of a fresh start, new possibilities.

As you probably know, Rose, Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. (Of course, I do love winter also--and spring!! ha ha)

But---seeing and smelling Fall is very special... I hope we have some vivid colors this year. Last year, when it was SO dry, we didn't have many pretty colors like previous year.

I'm READY...
Hugs,
Betsy

HAH! I am seeing this around here, too, even in our own front yard! Nice captures!

Isn't wonderful!!! I've seen goldenrod too! I am happy that fall is thinking about joining us.
