Autumn's Paintings


Autumn has a signature 
within its' light and colors


dancing clouds 
move through the land


setting sun 
paints zenful lines


forest mushrooms
intertwine


lake shore captures fallen leaves

bear tracks
as fresh as the air i breathe
~
*
have the bears tucked themselves in
to a cave
I think it is still too warm here 
to hibernate
~


may you walk in beauty

  1. You had me peacefully spellbound, until the bear. Wow, that's close.

  2. You must have a strong heart, for how can you overcome the palpitations and flutters at these magnificent and gorgeous sights. Even the fairies' bonnets have a special glow. Keep warm. Tsup!

  4. Forgot: Are you sure those are bear tracks? Not the yeti? :) Heheheh!

  5. Bare it All to expose the perfect print... a true sign of a golden moment.

    Bear in mind that all grizzly encounters are shuttering captures of mushrooming fears that require decomposition.

  6. What amazing captures of colour and shapes. Those rocks are nature's jewels. In-between the layers of clouds is a sprinkling of powdery snow and the sun uses the grasses to paint "zenful lines". Leggy mushrooms leave their bed of moss to scan the horizon and the lake shore captures fallen leaves like golden coins! Even the bear has left footprint designs in the earth to add to the beauty of it all!
    A wonderful series, Tammie Lee

  11. What a lovely walk, your images are beautiful. Cool seeing the bear tracks. What kind of bears do you have there? Maybe you should be wearing bells on you to be safe. Gorgeous photos, happy Sunday!

  16. I enjoyed wandering around with you, seeing and feeling the peace of your world. Until I came to the bear part! I've never seen bear prints ... maybe that's a good thing!

    Love and Peace, dear friend.

  17. Though I would love to go for a walk, I think hibernating could be just what I need at the moment! :-)

  18. A wonderful set of photos, Tammie. The colors are brilliant in every one.

    Are the bears grumpy in the fall?

    ReplyDelete
  19. What glorious colors! that yellow rock - very unusual, at least here in New England (usa) and bear tracks, so exciting.

    Your photography captures the moment so well.

  20. so many wonderful messages from you all, thank you!

    as for the bears, we have black bears and grizzly bears. some people where bells to scare them off, most people do not. making noise is wise so that one does not startle a bear.

    somehow life feels 'right'when i see their tracks, knowing they are around.

    i think bears are grumpy like humans, when they are hungry, when they are startled, when sleepy. So in the fall, well yes if they can not find food.

    thank you all for your visits!

  22. Lovely, Tammie. The bear tracks are cool and the stone in the third pic reminds me of a bit domed building.

  24. Those tracks are just perfect, Tammie! I've seen some in the mud, but they don't hold their form. I think our bears are still roaming -not enough snow and consistent cold. These photos make me want to walk in your land, so I imagine the bears still want to roam through the fields and forests, too. Those mushrooms are so delicate - I've loved your
    mushroom finds this fall.

  32. A lovely post Tammie.
    I'd love to see bears in the wild. I came quite close once judging by the freshness of the deposit on the ground.
