Images of Autumn

The calendar says that it is still early fall, but if feels a lot like a Vancouver winter.  Lows around -4 and highs of 5 or 6 and the amount of daylight is decreasing rapidly (if they had Halloween here the kids would be able to ‘trick or treat’ starting at 4pm on the 31st).  Our first snowfall is forecast to hit as early as Friday.  I went for a run this afternoon in 4 degree drizzle and the lungs were burning pretty quickly even at a relaxed steady pace.  I guess the body just needs to get used to it…

Saturday however was quite nice (sunny and chilly) and we got out for a little nature walk and took some pretty good pictures that we thought some of you may enjoy.

Last few days for the leaf canopy

The water looked perfect for a leisurely canoe paddle.

Sorry for the bad light (and taste), but this sign was too funny not to post.

  1. These images are stunning: the path through the woods, the water grasses, the canal with the boats, all gorgeous. Yes, i’m appreciating over here.

    We’ve had a (relative) cold snap over the weekend and the colours have changed nearly overnight. Our glorious hot summer was followed by a glorious mild – and clear – fall. It’s only the last couple of days we’ve seen rain and wind, but it’s come on hard. Perfect soup and cocoa weather. Yummy.

  2. Thanks Bridget. I’m sure you’d be able to get some really nice shots with all your cool photo gear. We’re just using the little Canon point and shoot so sometimes we get good ones, and sometimes not…
