The trees in our neighbourhood have begun their explosion of colour, leaves turning from lush greens to yellows, reds and golds.
When we’re on our daily walks I often pause. While Mikey is searching around the base of the tree for sticks and leaves to take home with us, I look up through the branches to see the low autumn sun glowing behind each leaf. For a moment in time the leaves take on the appearance of the tall stained glass windows of some magnificent cathedral.
They will eventually begin their journey from the top of towering branches to the ground below, each one at the mercy of the wind as they fall.
For every breath that stirs the trees,
Doth cause a leaf to fall.
From The Autumn, Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Head on over to Live and Love Out Loud today to see Kristi’s post about Reflecting upon your own Personal Photography Journey.
I’m teaming up with Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud to bring you the Nurture Photography Autumn Challenge – a photography challenge aimed at capturing the beauty of fall.
Not experiencing autumn in your part of the world? No problem. All are invited regardless of geographic location.
Two prompts to choose from each week! Share your favorite images inspired by one of our weekly prompts. Or both. It’s totally up to you.
The linky will remain open from 9am Friday – 9am Thursday CST. Link to your Nurture Photography blog post or Flickr photo, not your blog’s home page or Flickr photostream. Don’t forget to visit and comment on the previous entry in the linky list.
We’ll be showcasing some of your lovely photos by pinning some of our favorites to the Nurture Photography Inspiration Board.
We love Instagram just as much as you do! We’ll be on the lookout for your beautiful fall photos, so be sure to use the #nurturephoto hashtag to receive a little bit of Instagram love.
Last, but not least, don’t forget to grab our lovely button!
Please join us again for next weeks prompt: Yellow/Light. The full list of upcoming prompts can be found on the Nurture Photography Photo Challenge Page.
