The Last Summer Sunset and First Fall Walk

Summer said goodbye with a brilliant sunset that illuminated the clouds and dwarfed the trees.

Fall came in with more rain the next day but we took our chances and went for a walk at Deep Lake where all was serene.

The air was heavy with the piney fragrance of evergreen trees combined with the musty scent of maples dropping their leaves.

It’s only the beginning of color but it won’t be long until only the evergreens are fully clothed waiting for frost and snow.

  1. Summer said goodbye here today, with some of the heaviest rain I have ever witnessed in England.
    I stood watching it, fascinated by the sheer power of the falling water.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I don’t feel sad waving goodbye to summer, because autumn is such a beautiful season with so much to do and photograph. Thanks for sharing, your photos look absolutely amazing

  3. Summer is still hanging on here, but as your photos have shown, there’s is beauty to see, whatever the weather

  4. Stunning sunset! And hooray for fall color! We got a tiny taste of it at Great Sand Dunes NP last week, but back home in the Tennessee Valley we are still blazing hot and in a drought, so autumn color is many weeks away but for the sad brown leaves just drying up and dropping.

    • Thank you so much! I was happy to catch that sunset on the last day of summer. The weather here has cooled down and it definitely feels like fall. Though the most beautiful color will appear next month. πŸ™‚

  5. So pretty! It’s supposed to be nearly 100 today here, but lowering by tomorrow. Before it gets too cold up there, is it OK if Foster and Panda come by for a visit? And can Tiger and Benji go β€œsomewhere” with them? πŸ˜‰I’m almost done with the story but want to check with you before posting.
