Monday Mobile Week 12: A Touch of the Sun

Well… it’s really week one for me, because I haven’t joined in with this before. But my last  Silent Sunday picture was actually inspired by this passing shot a few days before:

OK, so DSLR quality it isn’t. But the picture was captured in a few seconds. The ‘best’ camera is always the one you have with you. I didn’t actually realise at the time how much atmosphere this shot would convey.

If you haven’t already, have a look at the other contributions to this meme, here. (The list is at the end of the post, after those lovely pumpkin pictures.)

How Time Flies!

This post is written in response to the ‘100 Word Challenge’ prompt here. All the other responses are listed there, too, as viewing links. Once again, the phrase that had to be included is in bold. 

Right now, I find myself thinking, “Surely it can’t be that time of year already? Whatever happened to summer?” Well, summer, such as it was, has been and gone. Frost has already made its presence felt. But there are compensations. The spectrum of colours in the trees ‘on the turn’ this year seems to be particularly spectacular – green still holding on to the last, contrasted with deep golds and russets.

Perhaps the real pleasure is to be found in enjoying each season for what it is. Ecuador is said to have the climate of a continual English Spring. Maybe I’d even get bored of that!

Ode to Autumn

The autumn leaves remind us of a growing season over.
There are berries in the hedgerow, but no flowers on the clover.
From cottage chimneys wood-smoke curls, and daylight sooner ends –
Lamps shine out from windows, for family and friends.
A drizzle falls in droplets fine –
Makes pathways shine.
Frost threatens:
Winter beckons.

This post was inspired and prompted by the ‘100 word challenge’ here.
(Just fifty words, plus the three ‘prompt’ words, were allowed this time.)
