AUTUMN TRANSITION

First of all, hope you had a blessed and peaceful All Saints Day. Like many others, my family and I went to the cemetery to light up candles for the loved ones that passed away. Yes, I did take my camera with me, but only to document the beautiful liquidambar autumn leaves in the most gorgeous tones ever. It was cloudy and rainy but the sun managed to peek through quite a few times. But overall, it was cold. You can certainly tell the winter is coming even though my part of the world hasn’t seen snow yet. At least my town, as there are some regions of the country where it already has snowed.
Aren’t these tones just beautiful? No, I am not trying to sing praises to my work but God sure did create some of the most gorgeous autumn tones. Beside Japanese maple aka Acer Palmatum, Liquidambar is one of my favourite trees because it has the warmest looking autumn foliage. Just beautiful.
Can you believe this is is lilac?! In the autumn! We had Indian Summer in full sense of the word. It was warm plus a few drops of rain, here and there. As much it is cool to see lilac in the fall, I kinda don’t like the climate change that’s been happening. It is just not natural.

 

And of course, a oldie-goldie-roadie shot of mine. I just can’t not to take it. The truck gives an extra touch, in my opinion.
Have a great night/day, guys! God bless.

    All Saints Day here in Brazil is tomorrow (November 2) and we call “Day of the Dead”. Don’t know why, but it sounds kind of creepy in English, but I swear that in Portuguese it doesn’t.
    I really LOVE your photos, as always. Autumn is hands down my favourite season <333

    Andrea, it’s not that you have a different name and a different date for the same celebration: it’s just that they are two different things! On the 1st of November in all the Christian world people celebrates saints; on the 2nd, the dead. From the portuguese wikipedia: “A festa do dia de Todos os Santos é celebrada em honra de todos os santos e mártires, conhecidos ou não. A Igreja Católica celebra a Festum omnium sanctorum a 1 de novembro seguido do dia dos fiéis defuntos a 2 de novembro.” ;)

    BTW, hi Ines! I am too a great fan of your photos, I have been following you on flickr and now also here since 4 years ago at least!
