There was several trees gracefully bowing over the rushing river, different colors, just beautiful! It was a cloudy day with the sun teasing me as it peeped it back and forth. I had stopped to admire this particular spot. I stood for several minutes listening to the tinkles of the leaves in the wind. It was if Autumn herself was softly whispering and humming through the trees. Suddenly the sun peeked through for a brief minute and the leaves in the shadows were instantly illuminated by the warmth of the rays. I took probably close to 30 pictures of these branches over the river. Different framing, different focus. I love them all. They are all magical! As quickly as it happened the sun disappeared again behind the grey clouds. I love finding the small things that bring me unsurmountable joy. There will be the waterfall scenes, the breathtaking vistas... but some of my favorite moments are as small as listening to the whispers of Autumn and catching the Sun rays...

Often when we think of perfection we think of flawless. Maybe the perfect fall portrait should be children with clean faces and perfect outfits. The kind you order online or buy at a special kind of store. Matching fall colors and them smiling just as their told at the camera. But this afternoon was pretty perfect to me. My two little ones got to splurge and eat Oreos which is pretty rare around our house. When we arrived at the Nature trail I thought about wiping their faces clean first but they had already settled naturally in the middle of this path and had found two sticks they were using to play with. (yes my boys entertain themselves frequently with sticks lol). There are no matching outfits, just what we threw on that morning before a rushed day of early errands and appointments. My kids were thrilled to stop and be free, run and play along the path, play with sticks and be children. When I look at this picture I'll remember REAL life memories and everything I just told you will surface in my mind and make me smile all over again. And to me that makes it perfect :)

We were driving on a pretty high road through the mountains when we came across this. From my seat in our vehicle I could just see the burst of gold tops of the aspens but as we turned the bend for a brief second I got a full view of a steep drop to this beautiful scene. We immediately pulled off the road. It was about 40 degrees and raining. I didn't have a cover for my camera and hiking to a vantage point I got pretty soaked! I was just praying that the "water resistant" feature on my new camera would hold up well. Of course looking back I wish I'd had a tripod to get a sharper shot, wish I could've hiked down the rocks and got a couple of different views but in the end I'm just glad I stopped. Sometimes the best picture is just the one you take! ;).

Happy October! It's already started beautifully for me. I took what what supposed to be a day trip with the family up to Buena Vista and Aspen Area. It was amazing! I had been worried that I had missed the color but instead it appeared to be at it's peak. Everywhere I turned I saw those beautiful transitions of gold and oranges. Most of the day was cloudy and drizzly leading up to the part where it started to snow! By that time we were headed through Independent Pass which was a little scary but made it to Aspen in time to get the Winter Storm Alert. I70 eastbound which was our route home ended being closed because of so much snow!! It was an unexpected turn and we ended up getting a hotel in the town of Eagle. It was worth being stranded and I would do it again! This had to have been the most rewarding trip for an Autumn extravaganza I've ever been on. As the famous quote goes, "I'm so happy I get to live in a world with Octobers." ;) Have a wonderful week my dear friends!
