Hello, my friends!
I’m finally posting a fall photoshoot! The leaves turned a lot later than normal this year, but goodness they were beautiful! It was one of the prettiest autumns I can remember in a long time. The photos for today are split between two different locations – my friends’ house while I was housesitting, and our farm, because of course.
Enjoy some warm fall colors for Thanksgiving season!
Starting out with some farm landscapes. I love viewing fall leaves from a distance with all the colors melting and blending together.
They’re also beautiful up close, of course. I found the most vibrant yellow maple tree! The individual leaves had a bunch of spots and speckles and imperfections on them, but the sun shone through them so much that they looked stunning regardless.
When I took these pictures, the trees in our yard were still tinged with green. But you know the gorgeous fall light that makes even green leaves look gold and glowy? Well, that’s what was going on here, highlighting all the hints of yellow and orange in these trees. (Also that’s a three-wheeler in the second picture, an old and rather dangerous ATV that doesn’t get much use anymore. But it added interest to the picture, so it wasn’t entirely useless. 😀 )
I’m also including some autumnal nature pictures that aren’t strictly fall leaves because AHH SO PRETTY. I love how a good camera and pretty lighting + editing can make even dry, dead weeds look interesting and lovely.
My friends have a bunch of blueberry bushes outside their house. I didn’t realize blueberry bushes turned orange like this, did you?
Back to our farm. I love when Dad plants wheat and field radishes as a cover crop because they look so vibrant and fresh and green, even in winter.
One of my favorite pictures. You guys know I love it because look: it’s a tiny moon! 😀
Ooh, here’s a neat series of pictures. I found this interesting bush with a bunch of red berries at my friends’ house.
So dark and dramatic. :O
I love this one! Dark, moody pictures are so much fun to edit.
Now for a happy one. Guess who accompanied me on this walk?
We have heaps of chrysanthemum plants around our house, including this lovely orange/rust-colored one.
Our house from a distance. Looks pretty green around it in this picture, huh? That’s okay – green is nice too. 🙂
The view toward the Cedar House is always gorgeous in fall. Actually guess what? It’s not the Cedar House anymore! We got it fixed up with new porches and nice vinyl siding so now it’s a cute little rental house!
Funny enough, the family living at the Cedar House pulled in just after I took the picture above. You can see the dust in this photo, hehe. Our gravel lane gets SO dusty, especially because my family and I drive down it really fast. Oops.
The frost killed these flowers but preserved the shape and form of them, which I thought made for some fascinating textures. Dead plants actually make interesting photography subjects, don’t they? I should do a whole post about them, just to see if I can make them pretty enough to be an interesting photoshoot… That’d be fun.
Back to my friends’ house and their cute little gateway. It reminds me so much of The Secret Garden book and movie. Isn’t the tiny ivy climbing over it so cute?
I don’t think the tree was actually this orange… it must be the edits I made. But I know it did look pretty and glowy when I took the pictures because of how the sun shone through it. Orange and blue make a pretty combination in nature, don’t they? Complementary colors to please an artist’s eye. 😀
Sunlight through beech leaves. ❤ Later on, these leaves will turn a pale, ghostly beige, but for now they’re a lovely green-yellow.
More blueberry bush shots! I love these fiery colors in leaves. So striking.
We shall end with another farm landscape featuring the wooden fence and a line of fall trees. *happy sigh*
There you go – your yearly dose of fall goodness from around our farm. 🙂 I hope you guys enjoyed scrolling through those pretty colors and nature photos.
Which picture(s) did you like best? Is it still fall where you live or another season by now?
Thanks so much for reading, my friends, and have a lovely day!
