Autumn –

SONY DSC

I awoke again this morning
With the scent of Autumn in the air.
It invigorated my spirit
End of summer’s almost there.

I can feel a building of excitement
As the season’s change again
The urge to gather nuts and stores
Ready for the onslaught
Of winters wind and rain.

I usually feel a sadness
When Summer’s almost done
But I’ve had my fill of sunshine
So now  Autumn…  bring it on!

Ooh, shiny! – ‘Ooh, Ohh, wow!

Anvil cloud or space ship?

My ‘Ooh Shiny’ is probably an ‘ Ooh, Ooh, wow, look at that!’

Then …

‘Where’s my camera?’

Panic.

‘Got to get this one!’

‘Wow!’

Drink it in.

Indulge in the moment.

Wonder at the amazement of it all.

Take a few more shots.

And, knowing I will never see it again that way,

Hope I have at least captured some of the essence of that moment.

Ooh, Shiny!
