Enjoying Autumn Days


"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." - Albert Camus

Every year, for the past five years i was travelling to the USA.  Sometimes Spring and most of the time every Autumn (October) ,  to attend the pest control convention. It was only this year that I was able to take spectacular fall foliage photos. I enjoyed so much the changing leaves and the crisp breeze.

I was fortunate and blessed to take these photos -- it was days before Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast.  The moment Sandy was in east coast, I was already back in the Philippines.

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, 
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking 
the successive autumns." George Eliot

How full of light and color are their last days.”

  6. Brilliant! The first photo is so exquisite ! It is of a breath taking beauty. Do you think Sandy distroyed these beautiful trees and bushes? I hope you or your relatives and friends were unharmed. It is terrible, I saw it on TV. Thanks for your post.

    1. I hope SANDY didn't harmed the trees and bushes, but in case she did I know they will grow again in time. Thanks for your care and concern, my relatives in the EAST COAST are all fine and unharmed. Thanks for dropping by my page. Have a great day!
