During the past few days I am spending most of my time sorting through some old photos (and other stuff). It just had to be done. I didn’t find any actual treasures but I came across good memories: more shots of that magical time when nature starts preparing for the cold winter. The one we call Autumn. They form part of a kind of set taken at Winkworth Arboretum which I published almost a year ago. I have no idea why I didn’t include them in an earlier post. As mentioned previously, I do tend to either forget about stuff, or I would have decided to let them fester a bit in my photo files.
Out of sight out of mind, they say. True, for me at least. So was browsing through my photos and found this one. I took it during our visit to Winkworth Arboretum, but since publishing the Autumn ones in a previous post some days ago, I forgot that I had some other ones stashed in the file, waiting for a good excuse to appear here.
This is nothing special really, but something drew my eyes to the leaves and concrete forming an arrow on the pond. Lately I’ve been having some uncertainties about life and work in general. I almost gave up but looking at the arrow makes me think positive. Onwards I say…Also, I’m finding photography therapeutic and restorative to say the least. Being in quiet surroundings without no distractions helps me focus, and makes me happy…as long as I have my camera.
Thanks for dropping by.
Last night’s/today’s big storm has passed over our area. It’s still raining heavily but the wind has calmed down. We knew it was coming, so this weekend we went to Winkworth Arboretum to take some pictures of the trees. We fell in love with the fall when we lived in Michigan, and here we managed to get a little taste of the season. This beautiful place is very near to where we live, so I will never understand why we’ve only been there twice. It opened late today, due to some storm damage, though the trees are generally ok and everything still looks lovely. It’s one of the places to be during the autumn.
Hope you enjoyed the pics. Happy Autumn!
