Project 52 - Leaves

Project 52 - p52 weekly photo challenge with Kent Weakley
I love walking through the woods on a cool Fall day. Its one of the places where the beauty and colour of the season really is evident.
Scenic Sunday
The forest paths are covered in fallen leaves, the colours are awesome. The air smells fresh.

Camera Critters
Squirrels are preparing for the long winter. We always have a packet of peanuts to pass out.
Being in the rainforest belt, unfortunately the leaves are always wet. The ground is wet, the air is damp and so the leaves never get to dry out and crisp up. I do miss shuffling through a path of dry crunchy leaves and hearing the crunch underfoot.
In fact the day when these were taken, it was raining.
My mind keeps coming back to the poem
 "The Woods were silent, Dark and Deep"
These woods were not silent. If you listened closely there was a buzz of activity in progress. Even with all the people besides us that were out enjoying the fall day, the woods would not of been silent!
Shadow Shot Sunday 2
I love that the photos I took captured one small moment in the Forest life. It will not look like this ever again. It was a fleeting moment to experience and the next time I visit here it will be a totally different experience. Its always new.

I love the forests too and feel grateful when I see a deer or two.

The squirrels are so 'puffy' this time of year up north, as well as busy and a bit tempermental.

Such gorgeous shots here.
I love the contrast of colors you captured. Orange on the ground, yellow and green on the trees.
You are right, the forest is an amazing place to just observe. It is always changing yet feels so ancient. I love that.
