Colors of Fall

DSC_6147I know that I have been gone a while.  It was not intentional, it just was.  I reached a level of lull that I just couldn’t seem to shake.  I actually went to write this post a couple of weeks ago when I actually took these pictures, but I wanted to write. I miss writing…I know that I have said that before, but I do.

Anyway, I wanted to write. I didn’t really know what to write, there are a million thoughts in my head and therefore I wrote nothing.  I posted nothing.  DSC_6124I am not going to lie….2018 has not been my best year.  It has had a some good moments, but it has been a far worse year than most.  I have been trying so hard to find the light, but it has been hard.  I turn 42 in two weeks and each passing year weighs on me a little bit more.

So many people I know spend a lot of time talking about their anxiety, their depression, and all that.  I don’t.  I know that I have mentioned it a time or two, but the actual depth-I Have not.  No one wants to hear that.  Maybe there are, but most don’t and that is okay.
DSC_6116It is time for a change.  Something that I have also said time and time before.  Now that change is crucial.  No one should feel like they are just being passed by or even just fading away.  No one should feel unfulfilled.  Empty.  Passion and fire is a must, I think.  For a fulfilled life.  Fire and passion.  DSC_6113
When I took these photos, the zone and I were under two trees.  They are fairly close to each and their branches were just full of leaves.  Yellow and orange and reddish.  The colors of fall.  The colors of fire and passion.

The only sun that showed through these trees was when the wind blew and the branches swayed a bit.  The leaves would just fall and so many of them at the time.  It was just beautiful and serene.  For a moment, I forgot about everything else.  My mind was not running a hundred miles per minute and it was just one with nature.
DSC_6106The leaves are gone now.  Winter has officially set in.  I don’t know what will happen over the next few weeks.  What the new year will bring.   I know what I would like to happen, but really it can only be taken one day at a time.   One falling leaf at a time.

As for the pictures. I hope that you enjoy them.  It is the first time in a long time that I have touched my camera and these pictures required little to no editing.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

The Path I Started….

DSC_9315.jpgAfter careful thought and consideration, I’m keeping Montana Rose Photography.  I thank you everyone that weighed in and advised.  You all are rock stars.

This path above. I started it, but I did not finish it.  This little trail is in Kentucky and I ended up driving ridiculously far to get there.  On a whim.  It was about three hours further than my original destination.  My original destination that was already a three hour drive, if that tells you anything.

With that said, I didn’t get there until late in the afternoon and since it’s winter…there were only a few hours of daylight left and it was fading fast, so a few hours was generous.  And by the time that I found this trail…I was already down to like and hour.  This trail was longer than a hour’s walk.  So, it didn’t get finished.  Maybe someday, but probably not.

I will most likely got back but to the opposite end of the forest.  There is a gorge and I didn’t realize that they were in two different areas and it was too far to drive and still have daylight.  Next time.

As for the picture, it is altered. The light was low to almost non-existent. I was surrounded by trees with leaves so even less light. I was tired. The pictures was boring. The leaves were mainly brown and dying. The tree trunks were wreaking of melancholy, so I filtered it. I enhanced colors.  I did what I do and created an pictures that I didn’t hate to look at.  One that may inspire a story or two or a poem somewhere down line.  For now, it is just a post. Just a picture.  One I hope that you like

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
