Fall Series 3

First, a note about my blog. I've had a continuous stream of changes as I've tried to upload a new look and a new banner. I apologize if things didn't always 'gel'. I was having photo storage issues. I think those are temporarily resolved once again.

I'm continuing with my Fall theme. Soon Fall will be over in this part of the world and I want to capture the beauty of the season while it's here!
These photos were taken on different days in different neighbourhoods. 

I was trying to capture the falling leaves as the wind blew them off the trees. Can you see the falling leaves, like snow? So pretty too when they blanket the ground.

Fallen leaves on the ground always made me a joyful child and young adult, kicking my way through leaves with a song on my lips. I especially remember this during my university years. I loved the invigorating air as I'd make my way from class to class from one end of the campus to the other.  This day I felt like kicking through the leaves but that wouldn't have been good for my sore leg.

This intense colour of the maple tree was so pretty against the robin egg blue sky that I just had to use it for my new header.

I love this clump of leaves at the base of the tree. They look so artfully arranged.

 My photo storage issues were caused by blogger saying I've reached my photo limit so I've deleted numerous blog posts from blogger and photos from the web album. I have to make time to resize all my photos in the photo storage before uploading them to the posts.

I've just been busy juggling a number of things and not doing any of them properly.
Hopefully things will ease up in the New Year.
Thank you for your patience with me.

Hi Penny, your new photos are really beautiful autumn colors. Even in a city can take beautiful photos of the autumn.
The maple is indeed a very intense color.
I send you greetings and more quality time for today

Joyful said...

Thank you, dear Geli. I really love autumn. Can you tell? *smile I could take photos all day long of the beautiful leaves and beautiful scenery. Sadly, blogger has limits on the photos we can store. Enjoy your day.

Morning Joyful.
I was just reading your blog since there was a comment from you.
Thank you for your comment.
Nice way you changed your blog.
Read about your future plans - cycling / eating / your mom.
Wishing you good luck all your plans.
Beautiful autumn images you show.
Wishing you a good Thursday.
Hugs Hanne Bente ♥

Joyful said...

Thank you very much, Hanne. I'm glad you enjoyed my Autumn colours and the new look for the blog. Have a wonderful day. Knus. Joyful

Angelika Poe said...

Hi, I'm back Penny, so if blogger has no place, then I start a new blog - it's so easy for me.
Now I go swimming, a dear greeting from Geli

If I send a mail via Joyful Servant, comes this email on to you?

Linda said...

Beautiful photos! I especially love the red Canadian maple leaves!


Joyful said...

Hi Geli, I am glad to hear you are so good on the internet. I can be but sometimes lose my patience ;-) Have a wonderful day!

Joyful said...

Thank you, Linda. I love the colours of Fall. I keep saying that, lol.

Angelika Poe said...

... well I'm not very patient and love Penny, but I try everything until it works, until I'm satisfied ... you said good night to Geli, now I'm going to sleep and you have a nice weekend

Brenda Green said...

Dear friend,
how could we have any thing but patience with you my dear.
Do you remember when you were younger, how much fun it was to run and jump into a pile of leaves. I sure hope there is leaves in heaven, so when we get our glorified bodies, we can easily get in and out, and jump all around.
hugs me

Joyful said...

Thank you, Geli. If I do not have too many projects and too many things that I must do, then I can stick with the internet and figure things out. But I must have time and no other big distractions.

Joyful said...

Brenda, that was a sweet thing to say. I also love the image of leaves in heaven for us to play like children ;-) Have a wonderful Friday.

Angelika Poe said...

Penny ... that's right, but since I'm here alone in the week, I love the internet, I can go bad, so I'm working on weekends and my husband is here and then we go into nature, or we travel yes very much. Soon we go again. Only one more week, then it's off into the sun. I am very pleased.
Greetings to you from the Geli

Nice pictures, and the black background shows them off so well. I'm still trying to persuade someone at work to change my blog for me...

Joyful said...

Wonderful Geli. You are blessed to have a husband who loves to travel too! I know you are excited about your next trip. I wish I was going for the warm weather, LOL.

Joyful said...

Caroline, thank you for the kind compliments. I've been wanting to try black for a long time as I know they show photos well but if I was really bold, I would get rid of all my widgets and show the picture as large as possible. Given that I'm having storage issues, that isn't a good idea, now, LOL. It will all be resolved in time. I just need TIME.

Angelika Poe said...

it is only a week and love Penny quickly, this warm time over, I would also prefer to stay there for many weeks. Greetings from Geli

Joyful said...

Geli, yes a week is fast but the warm sun will warm your bones. Enjoy my friend. Hugs. xx

Angelika Poe said...

yes I'll enjoy that one week Penny, I'm sending a little sun to you and then tell everything in the blog.
The day is almost over here, it's cold and foggy, and morning it is just lazy.
A hug to you from Geli

Joyful said...

Thank you Geli for the sun. It is shining here today ;-)
