The colours definitely change to a slightly more Autumnal cast in August here. Although still lush with summer warmth, as lovely as it is, harvest season paints the world with a specific colour palette: green, gold and blue.
I decided to add the blue of his shirt and the red of her leash.
As much as I like that shot, however, it didn’t quite get the challenge across. Then I looked to my right.
While the colours are beautiful, I miss the life of the young families. Now that most of the babies are flying, the lake feels lonely without them.
We decided to stop for a bit on a small rise, overlooking the other small lake (or large pond – depending on your viewpoint). Her tongue is a lovely splash of red.
I thought I’d hone in on her view, as the red granite of the small bridge over the channel had brightened things up a bit.
It wasn’t until later in this walk that I found the shot for this week’s challenge. I needed to remember that landscapes aren’t just vast; they can be quite small corners of our world. Sometimes, you find what you are looking for if you narrow your focus.
