Autumn Walk in the Rain

Autumn is definitely my favorite season, and I have been yearning for fall foliage for months. Here in California, though, we have been having a second summer, and colors are not just late, but due to the drought, are not as vibrant as they could be, because the poor trees are not as vibrant as they should be.

Therefore, to satisfy my own yearning, and maybe yours, too, I thought it was time to share these photos.

In line with California’s unique fall foliage progression, I photographed these images on a rainy December 1st (2014) morning at the Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross. I had been there earlier the same morning to walk the pups, and the colors, made more intense by the rain, were so irresistible that I drove home, picked up my camera and drove back right away. I also knew that at the first day of sunshine, the leaves would get raked off, which is necessary, but always such a pity.

Now put your boots on and grab a hot cup of coffee, then join me on this walk in the rain and revel in the feeling and colors of fall, savoring it all slowly. Can you smell the wet leaves? It is a fragrance that is unique to this season and which I start craving at the slightest shift in late summer. They should bottle it and sell it.

And at the walk (bottom of the post) there will be a present waiting for you.
