Fall has definitely arrived with the gray skies that make the perfect backdrop for all the beautiful colors of the season! One thing I love about Seattle is that the color, the trees go all the way down to the beaches and yet even when they are deserted, there are still signs of vibrant life. And so it is with our own lives and the seasons of our own evolution. The color is always there, if we take the time to look!!

Hope all of you have a terrific week! Enjoy!

Such beautiful trees ... much prettier than ours right now. Have a great week, Sylvia.

I think I recognize these spots...near your old home! The colors in the trees are beautiful. It's still warm and summery around here, unfortunately! I'd like some cooler temps. Enjoy the week and thanks for your visits.

I really like the autumn color in your part of the world. Seeing such color at the water's edge is a real treat.

Love the rusty orange fall colors, Sylvia, and also the photo of benches stuck in cement. There is no way someone can walk off with these seats, although they can leave their mark with a bit of graffiti!

I'm not sure which I like better, your beautiful pictures of fall color or the great quotes.

Reader Wil said...

Your trees are colouring much better than ours. We still have dark green leaves and we are waiting for the rich golden and red leaves.

Love the misty shots,

Barb said...

You're having a fabulous misty fall, Sylvia! (And - I loved your political quotes - a little jab at both sides...)

Roberto Machado Alves said...

Sylvia, great shots.
The first two pictures seem postcards. I intend to always post photos on OUR WORLD TUESDAY.

Greetings from Roberto, Brazil

Hello, Sylvia! you are seeing some beautiful colors. What pretty scenes with the beach and the trees. Lovely captures. I hope you are having a great day!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I love that first photo. Such color!

You are getting cynical on me again Sylvia. Of course, so am I. I love the comment about BS being our main problem, not political parties.

Al said...

Your world is uniquely beautiful this week, Sylvia. I love those grey skies, and we may see some this week with a winter storm watch for Tuesday night into Wednesday! I hope you have a great week.

What lovely misty shots! You're right - all seasons, like phases in our life, have their own colour.

Dianne said...

Love the brush-strokes of autumn and the spekky misty shot - Delightful Sylvia!

Very beautiful autumn. Your part of the world is really very attractive.

Sylvia,
Graceful color combination of autumn!! This view is the supreme gift from Mother Nature. I especially love the second photo where contentment, soothingness, peace and more exist. Exquisite series of the photos!
Best wishes,

Leovi said...

Very nice all, with the colors of autumn. Magnificent as you have captured the foggy haze.

Rajesh said...

Beautiful shots of the place, very scenic.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - love the muted colours in the first pictures - they seem more authentic and less chocolate box!

Also - good to see PJ nail it again! Have a good week.

I like your quote about Fall as much as any of the quotes from "other" famous people in this post.

Beauty is there if you look for it.

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
