Photo Friday #36 – Fall

You really can’t help falling for fall when the season makes the landscape so breathtakingly beautiful. I don’t think there is anywhere in the world that does fall better than Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. The colours are so vibrant you would think they were fake if you hadn’t just seen them with your own eyes, and the crisp & clean autumn air makes it the perfect time of year to go for long forest walks. Fall is probably the time that I miss the most when I’m away from home, and it isn’t just the colours. There’s something about the scent of fall – fallen leaves and damp earth, mixed with wood smoke and the not-so-distant scent of snow. It also smells like crisp, sun drenched afternoons spent curled up under a blanket with a book and my cat.

In the autumn there is no better place to be than my hometown – putting on one last show before snuggling up for the winter under a blanket of glittering white snow.
