“Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.” ― C.S. Lewis
The Virginia Arboretum is always a favorite place for photography in any season but especially in the Autumn season. Whether you photograph nature’s beauty in full display or create photographic abstracts from the season delights, it is a season of anticipation and satisfaction and completion with a treasure trove of beauty. @jacyjoypals
It’s fall and we are traveling the coast and mountain ranges to view the beautiful fall foliage and partake of the gifts of the season. This is surely a beautiful time of the year filled with autumn colors, gorgeous blue skies, crisp sunny days and yummy fruits of the season. Enjoy and photograph your fall journey to remember during those cold days of winter.
Autumn again? Yes, it’s another year and we are preparing for the Autumn Photo Walks here at the Promise Gardens and in our city. It is a glorious time for photography! A reminder from last season:
As Fall sheds the last weeks of its beauty, we have walked the gardens, forests, parks and waterfronts capturing their exquisite beauty and color. The Promise Gardens are being prepared to sleep for the winter and tucked away before our first big snowfall. This morning’s misty light snow flurries reminded us that getting Fall photographs posted are a must-do for this week. Thanksgiving and its bounty are right around the corner so dedication to these are an important part of our photography work and seasonable personal enjoyment of color and beauty. Soon the pristine white of snow will replace these amazing colors.

Autumn,–the slow name lingers,
While we likewise flag;
It silences many singers;
Its slow days drag,
Yet hasten at speed
To leave us in chilly need
For Winter to strip indeed.
by Christina G. Rossetti
…you will be missed — your beauty and hues, twirling in the breeze, sunlit glows, shade from the heat, the canopy over lovely places… Today the storm is here, raining heavily, windy and we watch the leaves blow in the wind and fall to be gathered later. We will miss you…
