    ReplyDelete
  40. These are gorgeous! They put me in the fall mood!

    ReplyDelete
  41. These are beautiful Lish! I completely agree- as you know- often I wish that we lived someplace else. I miss the trees, greenery, seasons, fall colors, flowers. But then someone will make a comment on one of my photos of all our wide open space, our mountains, our unobstructed sunsets that makes me realize that even in this place there is beauty all around me if I take the time to look for it. Definitely in the eye of the beholder!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh wow you totally float my boat with these autumn shots.... I too took a few recently just as the leaves started to change... It's my favourite season.
    I'm loving that your adding texture to your shots.
    I'm linking you to my recent Autumn post if that's ok from one photographer to another.

  43. Amazing shots... fall-inspired beauties... they conjure (for me) thoughts of Thoreau or better yet, the Grimm Brothers. I just wish it was cold in Charleston, I'd go for a long, long walk.

    Thanks for hosting this link-up! Newly following via GFC!

  51. Alicia,
    I saw these last night on my phone reader and I knew that once I opened them on my desktop I would be inspired. I need to get out of my photography rut and your photos always remind me to get out and look at things with different eyes...and I am a HUGE SHadowhouse fan but raised textures? SWEET!!!!!
