©2015 Barry Smith - A fragment of dawn light fills this blossom
The move from autumn to winter is a time of change on our mountain: the morning light has changed to dark shades of grey-blue and then a blush or orange; the only street light on Treehaven Way is still shining when I walk; the Camellias and Nectarines are just a riot of colour; the Maples are shedding leaves; and artworks on the block reappear. I love these marks of seasonal change.

Having said that I can't say I look forward to the cold. Still the good news is that the shortest day is but 6 weeks away and then the mornings will take on a brighter hue.


  1. That fourth one reminded me of Turner! Lovely shots all, B.

  2. the festival of light - yes. at the shift of seasons i take time to be grateful for getting to bear witness to it once again. hoping of course that there will be others in my future, i try to sink into each moment and savor the subtlety of nature's cycles. beautiful pictures.

  3. Your change of season is far more spectacular than ours down here on the coast, B. Though there are a few more coloured leaves than I usually see. Your photos are so beautiful...

  4. Hi TT, MJ & C - thanks for checking out the post. TT - got to love the way light focuses and plays. MJ - you are so right - each day a visual feast is offered up if only we pause to experience the feast of colour and light. C - I goes being in the mountains (hills really) contributes to a more distinct seasonal change. Peace. B
