Well folks, it’s official. It can’t be denied any longer. Nope, no way around it… It’s definitely Fall! I know Fall officially started about a week ago now, but I like to ignore official timelines as long as possible when the approach of cold weather is at hand. But now that it’s October 1st (holy cow what happened to September?) and the cooler weather is clearly here to stay, I can safely admit to it being Autumn. I even turned our gas fireplace on last night (much to the dogs’ delight I must add).
As you can tell, I’m not a big fan of being cold. I much prefer heat and sun and summer. So to cheer myself up (and probably some of you) I thought I’d post a couple photos I took last year during the heart of Fall. It may be cooler outside, but nature is never more beautiful!
So to all you cold-weather haters out there, get ready to light up a nice fire, sip hot chocolate, and admire the beauty that is moving in :)
Sorry it’s been a while… again! Clearly I need to get my act together :) Anyways, I have some photos to share from this past August.
I did a session with my good friends, Dylan and Caitlin. We tried to schedule this session a few times but things kept getting in the way. Finally we picked a date, only to find out that Dylan and Cate made dinner plans prior. But in an attempt to keep the appointment and still have nice lighting conditions, we decided we’d go for early in the morning instead of later in the day. Unfortunately for me, I also had an 11.5 hour wedding the day before where I was assisting Lisa Kwan of Lisa Kwan Images (go check her out ’cause she rocks) so it was pretty hard to drag my tired butt out of bed at 6 am. But it all ended well and was so much fun.
In other news, I found out that day that Dylan accepted a job in California and they will be moving out there this October! Dylan and Cate, I’m so happy you guys liked your photos, and I am sorry to see you move away! I will miss you and will hopefully take a trip out to see you and enjoy the nice California weather :)
I know I’ve been a bad blogger lately… I’m sorry!!! In an effort to catch up I’ll do a few new postings over the next couple weeks.
Here are some of the photos I took waaaay back in May during the Doors Open event in Toronto. (On that note, wow summer is going by fast! Don’t know about you, but it’s been pretty rainy and cloudy here most of the summer. Here’s hoping August picks up…)
This past long weekend (Victoria Day in Canada) my husband and I went to the Adirondacks to go hiking. We did the same last year with a couple of friends and had a blast hiking and hanging out. It seemed like a nice tradition so we decided to try and do it each May long weekend. This year was a little tricky… hubby was in the Ukraine on business for the week beforehand, getting in on the Friday night, and I was trying to get over a back injury. But we pushed through and went ahead with the weekend.
The weather could have been better, and I was limited by my back, but we got out and got away from things. We stayed at a nice little B&B called Keene Valley Lodge. They had a great fireplace that was perfect for relaxing in front of with a bottle of wine… A perfect way to spend a rainy evening. Overall, it was nice to be back and I think it’s safe to say we’ll try to go each year that we can.
And of course I took some pictures of our time there… Here’s a little piece of the Adirondacks High Peaks region :)
I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are, but right now I’m looking out the window and watching snow fall in huge fluffy flakes. There is always a snow fall in April, sometimes even in May. But even though it’s not surprising, it sure is crappy!
Yesterday the husband and I went for a walk before sunset and I took some pictures of the woods and the emerging spring. Since it no longer looks like spring out today, I thought I’d post some of my favourite shots from yesterday, just to keep your hopes up :P
I entered a contest in my local camera club. I didn’t win anything, but I’m pretty happy with my pictures anyways. They are being displayed at the Oakville Townhall. If you’re in the area, stop by to check them out. There’s 80 entries in total being display.
Now that they’re being displayed, I figured it was safe to post them online.
Let me know if you have any advice for me if there’s a next time :)
