That Autumn Feeling

All photos taken on September 21, 2022.

Needing a walk and our fall colours fix, we returned to the River View Trail near Devon. Another sterling, sunny, blue sky day. All was right with the world.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Who doesn’t enjoy observing the leaves from the trees and plants changing into multi-coloured works of art before finally falling away? The bare and vulnerable branches that are created reveal the true and beautiful scenery underneath.

    1. The fall colours were better than usual this year and River View is always good for chipmunk sightings. My bird knowledge has improved since B & K got me a bird book for my birthday one year. The camera I use has a 1200 mm equivalent lens and it is invaluable for wildlife shots. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Hope you had a great weekend. Allan


  2. When I was younger my favourite season, absolutely undisputed, was summer. These days I’m with you, it’s Autumn all the way. Your shots and words do much to consolidate that idea, it is a pity that we don’t have more of Autumn I’d say. Once again there are lovely details abound, from the potato chip leaf to that delightful ladybug and his somewhat wobbly position.

    1. Thanks Leighton. Autumn has been our favourite time of year, since before we were married. Not as hot, bugs are gone and far more stable weather conditions, not to mention the colours. Did I mention the colours? I am not sure what that ladybug was up to. Likely just trying to hold on. I like to watch for the details which are a bit out of the ordinary. Thanks for reading. Allan
