Cooler temperatures signal a time of rest for the natural world around us. There is an excitement in the air as we say good bye to the heat of summer.
Autumn to me is a time of beginnings not endings. There are county fairs, craft festivals, the start of a new school year, and football games to enjoy, or maybe it’s because Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.
With the exception of the small pumpkin all the items in this photo were purchased at a local craft store. Using the Topaz Simplify Filter with Adobe Photoshop allowed me to give this photo the look of a painting.
Autumn . . . what are your favorite colors, shapes and tastes of the season?
