...ripeness and color...

"autumn is the eternal corrective.
it is ripeness
and color
and a time of maturity;
but it is also breadth,
and depth,
and distance.
what man can stand with autumn
on a hilltop
and fail to see the span of his world
and the meaning
of the rolling hills
that reach to the far horizon?"
~Hal Borland
it is the makings for a
beautiful fall day here
today.
many shadows to capture...
join us at HEY HARRIET
won't you
for many more shadows.
when you stand on your hill today...
may you find the meaning in your horizon!!!
just BE.

This apple looks tasty and sweet. The ripe fruit is a ruby glow, the shadows contributing a deeper red on the shady side. The lighting engances this treat so nicely!

Fabulous day here too, while we both have autumn munchies on our minds, we'll enjoy this beautiful Indian Summer day, with a cup of java and a whole slug of great friends from all over the place...

...life is good isn't it, each and every second breathed in is a joy, add to the mix the scent of a juicy red apple and a fresh baked pie right out of the oven...and hot coffee with friends, what more does one need...

say hey to Ma...has she got her shoes on...ha!!!

Terrific. I really like the repetition of the stem shape in the background, the stripes.

I think fall is one of my favourite seasons - I can almost feel the crispness in the air just looking at your gorgeous photo here - and I wouldn't mind an apple too come to think of it!! :)
