As we turn the corner of yet another season – the darkness starts to surround us early in the day – the Autumn season falls into the past – I present a reflection on the colors from 2014’s Autumn season.
These are my favorite images from this year’s Autumn, taken in various places around Portland, Oregon, including my backyard and the Columbia River Gorge. I expected the colors of the season to be more vivid this year, since we had such a long Summer. I heard a long time ago that, when there’s a dearth of rain in the late Summer season, the colors of Autumn are more vibrant. I guess I remembered that wrong? That’s not what happened this year in the Portland area. If any readers know more about this, by all means leave a comment. In the mean time, enjoy these images and I hope your seasonal transition is a smooth one.
