The crisp morning air brings the scent of rain mingled with the earthy aroma of fallen leaves as I look at back of Kanawha Falls. I’ve learned that the little clump of trees that cling to the rocks below the overflow dam are a pretty accurate indicator of what the season of color will bring. They’re among the first to change color and the more leaves they have when they change, the better the colors will be in the surrounding area. Of course the rain and wavelength of light also play a huge role in the show but these tend to tell us what to expect.
The Appalachian Fall is as beautiful as the Spring. To me it seems like the setting sun leaves a little bit of itself on the leaves every day until they all finally drop. Tones of gold and amber blend together with shades of crimson to make the mountains into a living sunset. If you live in the right spots those colors will reflect into your open window and transform your room as well. And the smell of Fall is more than rain and leaves. The smoke from wood burning stoves and fireplaces drift through the hills and you can easily envision the owner of that harth sipping coffee by the firelight on an early morning. Perhaps as a moment of reflection before putting on those boots and heading out for a long scouting hike to prepare for hunting season. The aroma of Autumn is also the canning of beans and other garden favorites throughout the day and a steaming bowl of chili in the evening. It’s a great day to be alive and living in the mountains.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
