Autumn Rituals

I love fall. I don't know if it's the crisp sunny days, the harvest moons or the colors. Is the sky really more intensely blue? Or does it just look that way against the yellow leaves? Today while leaving the beach, I saw a blog-worthy photo but did not have my camara battery charged. Picture a dozen black birds in a yellow birch tree against that brilliant blue sky.

Yesterday I took the kids to Dr. Alvarez' house to pick apples. His wife, the lovely and gracious Suzanne, loaned me her camara and emailed me these photos. When we arrived she said the apples were small and sour due to the cold wet summer we had. I told her it was the process that's important to me. It's all about being out in the sun and getting a good photo for the blog.
Thank you Rene and Suzanne!
PS. The apples are delicious!

Great photos :). We love the fall too. It's our favorite time of year. We were married on the first day of fall and of course, our little miss Autumn named after the season in which she was born :)
