WHEN FALL TAKES US BY SURPRISE...

Fall is here. There is no doubt about that. It arrived on the tips of it's toes, like a ghost, silently and invisibly. It had already installed itself long before we realized that the season had actually changed. There was no need to wait for the official proclamation of autumn to see and feel the drastic metamorphosis of our environment...

Nature is transitioning at a shockingly fast speed. It is as if it knows not how to transform itself slowly. Suddenly, from one day to the other the air is crispy, the light is fading, the trees are turning yellow/red and the animals behave differently. You go to bed in the evening and it is still summer and when you you wake up the next day it is already autumn. Crazy!
"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
- Albert Camus

  21. The colors of fall are nice, and as long as it is not getting colder, I'm okay, but I prefer the warmth of summer. In 3 weeks I'll be leaving for summer and stay there for 3 months :-)

  31. These photos should have a place in a mystery novel of sorts. Don't know why this flashed through my mind?!?
    Fall is here upon us, however, it has appeared in a much milder way. I'm thrilled to once more be blessed with the sense of seeing the gorgeous tree colors we get here in Quebec ;)

    Hopefully, one day, you can can visit and explore these same wonders ;)

    Ciao for now,
    Claudia
