Photo Friday: Autumn Mist

I pass by the lake each morning as I take CoCo to work.  Lovely, melancholy transformation of Summer into Fall. The sun burns mist into blue skies, in her last-ditch effort to hold on to Summer’s fun. I’m linking to Pierced Wonderings again this week.  She has some beautiful pictures of a Lake Mars. This time through a beautiful orange filter.

Summer curtsies, Autumn advances. What’s in your lens this week?  Please grab the button below and link-up with me. And another beautiful link-up:

That said, a few blues, and some purples, are hanging on as if to say, “There’s hope. Hang on. The cold is just a wave that will pass.”

Photo Friday: Mellow Yellow

Things are changing fast around here. Green turning to yellow almost overnight. Some trees are already losing their leaves. What a beautiful color, yellow. I really do feel mellow.
