Autumn used to be my favourite season when I was young. As I grow older, I am happy to experience the beauty of each season.
Patti’s challenge this week is Autumn – and never has it been more difficult for me to choose images…my autumn tributes counts in the thousands. I will let my choices speak for themselves. As usual, click to enlarge.
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
When the autumn meets the tranquillity, there you can see the King of the Sceneries!
Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.
Happiness is to get lost in an autumn forest, and not to be found is even a greater happiness!
When everything looks like a magical oil painting, you know you are in Autumn!
Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.
Every season has its own art and the art of autumn is to bewitch the people!
As the season changes, we learn to adapt.
A special thanks to Tina for hosting last week’s Spring challenge. And thank you all for sharing your spring poetry with us – hope and joy transmitted over the world!
Finally – Stay safe and well – hope to see many of your autumn memories! Next week it is my (Leya’s) turn to be your host – for Winter. Looking forward to seeing you then.

Just one word here: WOOoOOOow! This is why I love autumn. I’m a September child. Haven’t seen a hedgehog for years. We had one here in our backyard a couple years ago. As a child my grandma had a couple living under her kitchen steps … and every year they got small ones. Just adorable. My favourite image with the biker.
Thank you so much, Viveka! I love hedgehogs too – and have two in my garden. Every year I hope to see little ones – but I don’t know where they are hiding! Lucky you having seen them many times!
They are such a lovely creatures … and cute too. No evil what so ever in them. Yes, grandma’s they came out at times … she always gave them water with a few drops of milk in. Party time for them. Only milk will make stomach problems for them and they can die. Two or three drops only, very important. They were very shy.
My friend, Anita, used to make pancaces for them – much appreciated! They walked into her kitchen.
Wonderful images! I think autumn is my favourite season .. such beauty
Beautiful Autumn shots, Ann-Christine. I love the little hedgehog and the views of the trees across the water are wonderful.
Glad you love him too – the little one munching away!
Beautiful autumn images, the first is my favorite.
Thank you, Ana – so glad you liked them!
The sounds autumn breezes make rustling through trees and falling leaves, the illumination and colours that seem to burn into your eyeballs, and the little hedgehog munching on fallen apples. 🦔 🍎 😍
Poetic, Henry! And I love my little hedgehogs just as much as they love my plums!
So many hedgehog videos on YouTube, so little time to watch them.
These are beautiful – hard to pick a favorite!
Thank you, Nora!
The autumn challenge has passed me by, but your post has almost inspired ne to gibe it a go. Beautiful captures of vibrant places Ann-Christine
Thank you, Abrie! I am flattered I almost inspired you…;-D
Lovely images, Ann-Christine. Cute little hedgehog eating the plums and the cyclist in the avenue of trees is stunning.
Glad you liked them, Wendy! I love my sweet hedgehogs! There are two of them now!
What a lovely and inspiring walk down Autumn Lane :). I especially love the reflections – double the beauty. Your images certainly do speak for themselves, but the well placed quotes add an extra dimension.
Thank you for a lovely comment, OLU, and I must admit I have a soft spot for reflections as well.
You’re most welcome. I find reflections to be mesmerizing. 🙂
I feel like I’ve bathed in golden beauty 🙂 🙂
”Because you are worth it” – I almost added, Jo!
Lovely autumn photos. Love what I presume is a hedgehog.
So glad you enjoyed them, Irene. And yes, my little friend in the garden loves the fallen plums every year.
Förbannat bra bilder = Swedish.
Wow – tack!
This is a great collection, Ann-Christine.
Thank you, Steve – you make me feel good!
I love this set of fall series, AC! Your beautiful photos go perfectly with these quotes.
Lovely bird capture. 🙂
Thank you, Amy – so glad you liked them! Unfortunately the last photo of the couple…one of them hit a window and never recovered. I hope he/she will find a new mate!
Ann-Christine – wow, such a lovely selection of photos that go so well with the quotes. It’s really hard to pick a favorite, I do love the pop of purple color in the first one. The variety of colors in the trees reflected on the water is grand. Your bokeh technique is beautiful too. Your last photo reminds me that I have a photo from this past spring of a couple mourning doves hunkering down like that on the ground in the rocks. I look forward to seeing what you’ll share for winter!
Thank you for all your lovely comments, Shelley! The two lovely doves – that is the last photo of them together. One of them hit a window and never recovered, so now there is only one of them coming to visit my garden.
Winter? I do believe you have more winter photos than I have…winters here have gone from lots of snow when I was a child to NOTHING last year. Not one single day with snow, and hardly any frost. I am looking forward to YOUR take on it!
You’re welcome. Yeah, we’ve had the dove hitting the window issue too. We have 3 that come back every year. I’ve heard they mate for life so when one is gone, they just hang with the closest other couples.
Bummer that you didn’t have any snow pictures from last year. Oh, yeah, I’ve got plenty of snow pictures, that’s for sure. I’m searching through photos getting ready for a post!
Looking forward to it!
These beautiful images sing autumn so tunefully. And it’s a welcome tune welcome as we are in the worst of our winter.
Soon spring will arrive where you are!

Each of your photos felt like an invitation to step in to experience fall’s cool beauty. Wonderful relief during this hot 🥵 weather!
Ah, thank you, glad to have cooled you down! Is it that hot over there? We have a very bleak summer…quite chilly and rainy I am afraid.
Ooh. Nice photos. Still water reflections and tree-lined roads are always a favorite.
Thank you, John – I’m with you there…
I don’t know why, but my favorite autumn images always involve reflections from a lake. Beautiful examples I found here.
Thank you, John – I think I agree with you on reflections – they make the images elevate!
Amazingly beautiful collection, Ann-Christine!
How kind of you – autumn is sometimes very colourful, sometimes only drizzly. I always hope for the colours to arrive.
The reflection on the lake is so beautiful. All these images are lovely autumnal visions.
Lovely calming images, thanks.
Love it that you feel they are calming –
Stunning captures! Love them all…
Thank you so much!
These images are so, so, so beautiful! Lobe them all ❤️❤️❤️ But sad to say I might not have a winter photo. We really don’t have a significant change here where I live. Will try long and hard from my archives for a winter one.
Some places have no winter, and some places have a hot winter or a snowy winter…everything is changing and is very strange. I guess you can use anything that feels ”wintry”! Thank you for liking the autumn images!
Thanks for the comment!
Beautiful images Ann-Christine and your photograph of the hedgehog would make a lovely greeting card 💜 xxx
♥ Lovely idea! This year we have two of them!
Beautiful images, but admit I have soft spot for hedgehogs so it is my favourite one.
Thanks, My soft spot too…this year we have two big ones living in the garden. Hope to have enough plums for them!
How lovely to have such lovely garden residents
♥♥ I give them boiled potatoes, waffles, raw eggs, and sometimes cat food.
I liked the second photo with its colorful reflections in particular.
Glad you liked that one – it seems popular so far!
So many beautiful photos! And get my very favourite is the one with little hedgehog having a feast with the apples. 😄
I love him too! This year we have two of them in the garden – hope we will get enough plums to feed them!
Some wonderful images, A C…the colours of the trees in a number of these images are wonderful, and LOVE that hedgehog!
Mmm, he is so sweet. This year there are two really big hedgehogs here – which makes me very happy!
Oh, brilliant! I haven’t seen a hedgehog for many years
We have two almost every year – love them.
Oh, I’m envious!
Absolutely gorgeous images, Ann-Christine. The color and clarity are fabulous. I love them all! I also try to enjoy all the seasons, but winter is a challenge! I’m always cold!
Haha, well thank you – then next weeks challenge will really be – a challenge!
Oh my, so beautiful! The clarity of your images make me feel like I’m there at the lake looking across to the other side.
Thank you – So happy you feel like being there, Anne! It is a very beautiful place.
Oh what fabulous photos you have taken for the autumn season. These are all wonderful. 😀
Thank you, Cee! I love autumn.
I can see why you would have difficulty Choosing A-C! They’re all gorgeous. For me, the row of trees, the hedgehog (is that what it is?) and the birds would tank at the top of an incredible set
Thank you, Tina! Yes, that little hedgehog is feasting on our fallen plums. He and his friend lives in our garden. The two of them are really sweet.
I imagined you would pick the birds too!
Great gallery of autumnal images Ann-Christine, stay safe and well too!!!
Thank you, Paulo!
Beautiful photos! I like the street/road one in particular!
Glad you like them! Thanks.
