Fall

when every leaf is a flower

Happy Thanksgiving

 
 

 
After our walk along Spanish Banks last week we took the Admiralty Trail, one of our favourite pedestrian pathways through the Pacific Spirit Regional Park, and enjoyed the glorious October fall colours illuminated by the afternoon sunshine.

For this week Discover Challenge: Flâneur Krista asks us to “Observe your city, town, street, or patch of earth and report back — in your favorite medium.”

No surprise that the patches of earth that I love to feature on The Changing Palette, as you know, are here on Kitsilano Beach Park in Vancouver with views out to English Bay.

Yesterday’s morning walk at sunrise was rewarded with these glorious Fall colors in the park…

One final image from the walk you might recognize as I used for an eerie backdrop in my post for this weeks Photo Challenge: Transmogrify.

No surprise that the spectacular Fall colours from our recent trip to Quebec found their way into the studio today with the magic of water, paint, brushes and a little imagination.

Falling for the Falls in the Fall

Montmorency Falls, Quebec

Back home in Vancouver after our memorable visit to Québec, a photo for this week’s Photo Challenge: H2O to add to my 1000th post yesterday with this view approaching the Montmorency Falls in the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency on what was simply a perfect Fall day.

Fall glorious Fall on the Ile d’Orleans

After the breathtaking Fall colours in Québec City yesterday our visit to the Ile d’Orlean today was just as spectacular with our first stop at the Montmorency Falls in the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, before crossing the bridge to the Island where we picked apples, enjoyed the best strawberries and savoured every glorious colour-filled moment.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 1000th post than with these images from our memorable visit today to this beautiful Ile d’Orleans here in the Province of Québec.

Home to Vancouver and the west coast tomorrow.

Fall glorious Fall in Québec City

We couldn’t ask for a more perfect Fall afternoon here in one of Canada’s most beautiful cities, Québec City, where we have arrived for a short three day visit. I have no doubt the Ile d’Orléans where we will be spending the day tomorrow will be just as spectacular.
