I went to the trail again today. This time, I went in a direction, I hadn’t been in before. It was cool, yet warm enough not to notice. The air was crisp. The forest was almost barren. The trunks and limbs of the trees scattered the sides of the trail like x-rays on a doctor’s wall. The sun shinning behind them seem to make them appear heavenly. The final few leaves on the trees seemed to be hanging on for dear life, waiting for that gust to finally take them to their eternal resting place. The ground was carpeted with those who had already fallen. It was a completely different trail. It was a reminder that winter is upon us.

Leftovers is my favourite!
Thanks Nana Cathy.
Leftovers is my favorite shot also. Nice composition and beautiful colors!
Thanks a lot!
That’s nice! I’m still learning though, how to take such shots nicely.
Rustic, you’ll get there. Thanks.
The colours of autumn and spring are the best to capture. What photographers capture through the lense, painter’s capture on canvas, poet’s capture in words and songwriter’s sing about. These two are really inspirational seasons and your pictures capture that essence. Love your work.
Thanks so much. I am also glad I found your blog!
I have a soft spot for the Trail series pics of yours. Love all of these. I was thinking of taking pictures of the snow covered trees yesterday( of course it would be crappy quality from my ancient digital cam lol) but then i was like eh its alot of work to dig out my camera and then trek around in the cold. Then i thought about how you do it everyday. So props to you for the dedication!
Well, I don’t do it everyday. Although, I should as it would be great exercise. Thanks for your comments.
You captured lights and shadows very well and in some of the images the crisp blue sky creats a staggering contrast.
Thanks jav3d. Glad you like them.
Love your pictures! Autumn is my favourite time of the year and I think you’ve captured the atmosphere of late autumn turning into winter tremendously well. Thanks.
Thank you kathrinaha
Your descriptive words and your amazing photos make my heart sing.
“What a magnificent deciduous forest in fall with winter close behind.”
Yes it is fabulous 😉 Thanks Mary
Beautiful as usual. I always look forward to your photo posts. Made my Friday!
You are too kind. You made my Friday 🙂
This is beautiful! Where is it? It looks like a trail I walked in Pennsylvania once, though I suppose it could be anywhere. 😀
It’s in southwestern Ohio, near Cincinnati and Dayton.
Beautiful description and lovely pics!
Really cool! Looks like something out of Thomas Kinkade painting only I don’t see a little cottage in the middle of nowhere. Good stuff.
Thanks. It felt like I had walked into one of his paintings.
Lovely photos. The sky colour is so different where you are, to where I am. I thought you might like to have a look at my partner’s flickr site – he takes beautiful pictures too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/41605996@N03/
Thanks Julia. Very nice pictures.
Lovely photos, Seth. It’s nice to see some colors still, despite Winter getting closer and closer.
By the way, I have nominated you for a blogging award on my blog. Do check it out when you get a chance. Thanks
Thank you Gracie! That is very kind.
Fantastic shots, Seth!!
I really like your photos. 🙂
Autumn colours are breathtaking … I run in woods that look like this right now …. ‘Alone’ is simply beautiful x
Nice. I need to run but it’s hard to do that and take pictures… 😉
I run with my iPhone in my pocket for doubt the camera you use would fit in your pocket 😉
No and I’d probably pass out after half a mile. 🙂 I need to get more fit. My dad is 62 now and still runs 6 or so miles a day.
then it is in your genes 🙂 x
Well it maybe but It’s very dominant. 😉
These are absolutely beautiful. The lighting is perfect.
These are all so pretty. Love your fall photos.
Thank you! I am glad you do!
This looks like a most fabulous trail to explore. and in the 1st picture it appears that there is a river running along side of the trail? I would be down in that river in a flash! thanks for sharing these lovely pictures.
Welcome. Yes. The Little Miami River runs beside the trail.
Nice pics sethsnap, thanks for sharing
Great stuff…especially like the up the hill angled shots…wonderful shadows. I love capturing understory at this time of year…its almost sculptural
Thanks so much. I am glad you like them 🙂
I can hear the crunching of your feet on the path. Thanks.
Thanks! And I did smash a few leaves 🙂
Darn, these are so cool.. The way you described it at first sounds so, uh, I don’t know how to describe it… 😛
I absolutely love the effects the shadows have in ‘shadows’. Haha.. I geuss you could say it makes it look heavenly? ^_^a
As for ‘the mona lisa’ and ‘alone’, those names really do fit them. 🙂 Awesome pictures, all of these. 😀
Thanks so much your words are very uplifting.
Your welcome.. 🙂
(honestly I never expected someone to say that about my words 😛 )
Seth, Love this series! Very Nice. My favorites are Lasso and The Mona Lisa.
Great shots- In Germany they call the month of October- Goldener Oktober
Nice. thanks for the info.
I think autumn is my new favorite season after moving to Colorado! I love the different shades of oranges and reds and browns scattered everywhere..
Yes it can be very beautiful. Of course it also means the cold of winter is just around the bend.
Beautiful words and images!
I love all of your “autumnal” photos! Fall has always been my favorite season. I’ve really been missing all of the great colors of the season since relocating to California. Thanks for posting a little piece of home.
These shots are so different from the forests we have here in the Pacific Northwest. Here we have evergreens mostly and few deciduous trees as you have there. It’s a strange and lovely world and I can just imagine walking along this trail and enjoying the changing time of fall. It’s perhaps my favorite time of year because of these changes you capture so well. The Time of Falling Off and Dying, my Native teacher called it. Apt I think. Thank you for liking my post and it’s nice to see your work again.
Thanks so much Steve. You have some lovely scenes out in the Pacific Northwest. I love it up there. I need to re-visit with my camera though.
