Since the leaves started turning colors, I've been trying to find a good time to take pictures of the beautiful autumn foliage.
Traditionally, I'm a summertime person. But you know, I am realizing now that I love autumn! I have loved it all along, I just didn't know that.
I love all of the different colors.
I love the temperature and the smells.
I have depression which is heightened by the days getting shorter and colder, so my goal this autumn and winter is to find things that I find beautiful about these seasons.
One of my very favorite things is seeing sunlight shine through leaves and make them glow.
Autumn here in Meridian is gorgeous! There are lots of red trees around!
I think I focused my lense on the grass instead of the leaf I'm holding...don't worry about it.
I love this yellow! It's so pretty! So there you go, guys. If I get around to taking more picture of the leaves, I may make another post with more photos. If you pin any of these photos, please mention that they're from The Keyhole since I didn't have the patience to watermark them all. Thanks!
Also, I just wanted to say that one thing that improves my mood and outlook on life is finding things that are beautiful and expressing gratitude for them. They don't have to be extraordinary, either. But I find that when I find joy in the everyday things, they become extraordinary to me--like the fall leaves.
