Great photos David Antony, Frank and David Kilpatrick ! :D

Autumn indeed does prevail in these shots in essence, while it also affects our daily tasks as David Antony's nicely shows...

These new cameras brought a third dimension to our visual life... Nice of you to remind us of the alternative options with which we can view a season like autumn, David K. I'm sure spring, winter and summer will also be just as interesting in 3D.


Frank; : )

Thank you for putting a little space between your great shots. Now we can appreciate each of the photo's beauties separately...

Another kind of Autumn Wind...

For this image I used my 1.4/85 wide open - and I was lucky that the focus was o.k., as I have made the experience that the AF system is not really reliable with this lens.

Nothing like windswept withered brown-yellow and multi-colourful leaves flying about madly in the air to call it that certain season of the year!

:D And of course the chores that come with it!

Good one, Markus... : )

Thx Dr. Harout, Aster. Of course the chores are there, and even more substantial if it's the neighbours trees causing them. But the noise and stench for the innocent bypassers is not to forget as well :(

Hi Markus,

I understand the discomfort only too well. It can be really distracting and offensive and kills the day's and the season's sweet whispers that are actually kind of joy-bringing in a peaceful way; wind whistling through the tree branches and leaves...rain splashing against the patio stones... kids laughing while heading to and from school busses... : ))

I used to love autumn so much more when I was a school kid, when I could just run around in our garden after I stepped down from my school bus and I would greet my mother loudly until I was at the front door of our house. All that, of course happened when I was living by the lake surrounded by a lake and its natural inhabitants and coniferous trees...and a lemon tree that was planted at my birth, of course! Gorgeous days they were full of birds' singing and absolutely no 'stench'.

The tool / equipment manufacturers should work hard to get only a minor 'humming' sound out of those leaf-blowers...
