Lens-Artists #106: Autumn

This July “Seasons” will be the theme for the entire month with a different season featured each week. This week the challenge is “Autumn”.

In coastal Georgia, cool fall weather is always a treat after the sweltering heat of summer. The sweetgrass (muhly grass) that grows here announces autumn with it’s brilliant pink colors.

When we want to see red, orange, and yellow autumn leaves we travel away from the coast.

In our house, autumn means it’s college football season. We have spent many fall Saturday afternoons at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia cheering on the Dawgs.

    1. Lisa, thank you. Yes, who knows what will happen with college football and other sports. I know I will be watching on TV cheering on the Dawgs from our living room if they do play. Go Dawgs!

  1. Clearly we share similar climates Beth and your sweetgrass image warms my heart. No way we’ll be traveling up to NC to see the foliage but not this year I’m afraid. Hope you’re able to see some foliage near you. Your images are lovely and show that you do have more color nearby than we do.

    1. Tina, thank you. The sweetgrass is the only image from here. All the others are at least 200 miles from here – middle Georgia, west Georgia and North Carolina. Until this year, we would always go to Athens a few times in the fall and would look for changing leaves while we were in the area.
