Aspen Gold

Autumn Splendor # 1

Autumn is by far my favorite time of year and unfortunately, due to illnesses running through our household this year, I missed it. And it missed me. Even here on the mountain, which is normally glorious, there was a dismal show of color. I imagine the foot of snow we received earlier in the season had something to do with the aspens simply going from green to brown.

But, thanks to the magic of photography, I have more than memories to go by.

this is so beautiful
bits of gold dancing on the tips of grand old branches
I adore trees, they're so generous

I hope everyone is feeling better!!

Hi, Lisa! Welcome to blogging. I found you through Dianne's post.

This is a glorious photo! I too love autumn. Have never been able to decide which I like most - autumn or spring.

I'll be looking forward to more from you.

Visiting from Diane's Fork of the Moment.

Beautiful Aspens.

Daryl said...

Any friend of Dianne's is a friend of mine .. welcome to the Blogsphere .. lovely photo!

Thanks Bobbie, Nessa and Daryl for the warm welcome! Glad you enjoyed the photo. I took that photo right here on the mountain. :) I've been wanting to do a photo blog for a while but never had the time before now. I'm looking forward to visiting other blogs, too.

I love trees as well, Dianne. And while aspens are lovely, I miss those grand old Eastern maples, oaks and beeches sometimes. . . Oh, and two of us are feeling better but hubby is still down. :(

Bobbie, as far as autumn vs. spring. . . No contest here since we get the majority of our snowstorms in the spring. And they are often good ones--8 feet one year.

Thanks again everyone for stopping by!

Like the others, I'm here through Dianne's blog and I'm so glad to have found you! Gorgeous shot of the aspens! We have so much beauty here in Washington that it seems I spend most of my time, camera in hand.
Thanks for sharing the beauty and I look forward to visiting frequently!

Have a great weekend!


Mountain Photog said...

Thank you, Sylvia! And thanks for stopping by! I'm going to have to start paying Dianne commissions for sending folks this way. lol!

I've heard that Washington is beautiful, too. I took a quick look at your blog--you have some gorgeous photos! And you're doing something that I was planning on doing as well--putting quotes to the pics. :) That's the nice thing about the Internet, you get to visit great places without leaving your chair.

Linda said...

Hi Lisa! Dianne sent me and I must say that I'm glad she did! Those aspens are glorious and you captured them perfectly.

Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging; I'll be back!

Mountain Photog said...

Thanks so much, Linda! I love sharing photos from my world. And everyone has been so kind and welcoming. Dianne has great readers. :)

Here from Dianne's. This is a lovely photos.. such brilliant colour. I scrolled back to your earlier posts too. Those ladybugs are absolutely incredible. I've never seen anything like that. I'm kind of hoping I don't! Welcome to the blogosphere. :)

Mountain Photog said...

Thanks, Hilary! The ladybugs were neat but I'm hoping they were a once-in-a-lifetime event. :)

I took a quick look at the latest post on your blog--beautiful photos! I'll try to get back to explore a bit more later.

So many creative people here!

Hi Lisa! Welcome to the world of blogging. Dianne spoke very highly of your blog. With good reason. I think I too will enjoy your blog very much with photos like this. Lisa

Mountain Photog said...

Hi to you, too, Lisa! And thanks for the kind words and the welcome. Dianne is so sweet to be promoting me. :) You have wonderful photos on your blog, too. You'd never know that you only recently took up shooting.
