  4. Beautiful, beautiful photos… such a wonderful time of year. I love the autumn, maybe because I am a Virgo and earth sign. I love the autumn colours and to see the brown, newly ploughed fields after the harvest. And that is such a profound question Patty……….’where does the sky end?’ Makes you think!

  7. Oh, Patty — this is a total stunner. Thank you for taking me on your walk — wish I could journey there in person.

    It’s a rainy, gloomy day here — not a speck of sun to brighten the autumn trees. I feel better for visiting you!

  22. Hello Patty 🙂 Ohhhh myyyy, I soooo miss this time of year when I lived in the Midwest! As much as I enjoy the weather here in Southern California, I DO miss Autumn in Indiana *sigh*. Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos of YOUR Autumn.

    PS And yes . . .I had a fab-u-lous time on the Tim Holtz cruise! It is definitely something I will do again with him. Not one detail was over-looked in the 8-days that over 160+ around-the-world artsy folks were in one place together!

  26. Patty, your autumn photos are breath-taking! You have such a talent for photo art as well as paint and canvas and paper art. Autumn has been really very pretty this year. We noticed on our trip through KY and WV a little over a week ago that the leaf color this year is especially vibrant.

    Thanks for your visit to my WP blog. I appreciate all your kind comments.

  29. this is beautiful. i Love what you wrote about listening to the leaves fall in the silence, no wind at all. i’ve had a very noise-filled few days (years?) and i think i need to take such a walk. silence is golden too!
