A Tribute to Fall

It snowed today... for the very first time! Not a real snowfall, just a few flakes, but it made me realize just how soon we'll all be saying goodbye to fall. The leaves are almost all gone, and you can distinctly smell winter in the air. It makes me happy though, in a few weeks time, millions of snowflakes will be lying around, just waiting to be photographed. And then of course, there's Christmas, a time when gifts are exchanged and we take time remembering the greatest Gift of all. December will then eventually give way to January, my birth month. :) So you see, I have tons of things to be excited about! But I wanted to take the time to give fall a little tribute, let it know just how much I'll miss its colour. As the saying goes, 'a picture is worth a thousand words', so I'll let my photos do the rest of the talking for me. :)

This photo reminds me of pine cones and snowball fights, must be the white 'snowy' background.

The colours were all so pretty! And I love the touch the little unfocused green leaf gives to the photo!

Do you think you'll miss fall? I know I will. But still, I can't wait for December to arrive! :)
