Recent weeks VI: Saying goodbye to autumn


Princeton University's "front lawn" and historic Nassau Hall. Autumn leaves were already fading in this November shot, but I love the season so and can't resist the colors.

Looks to be an idyllic place to study - even if it's just to study the autumn colours.

Another 'golden' shot... the solitary figure walking away is like Autumn leaving for another year.

What a privilege to have a autumn like this and Princeton is so beaut.

Something to savor as falls gradually gives way to winter.

The trees are beautiful and I can almost hear the crunch of those leaves under foot.

Simply gorgeous! Can't go wrong with fall foliage on a college campus. Love it.

Beautiful light and colors and lovely long shadows… it's sad to see Fall go. I've been really enjoying your recent posts Lulu, makes me nostalgic for what was just a couple weeks ago.

I don't blame you Lulu, the colours and light are fabulous! I have to say I do love the trees when they become 'skeletons' also!

Such crisp leaves, certainly signalling the end of a wonderful autumn -in the UK and with you too by the looks of it!
