I’ve seen some signs of fall in Seattle, Washington.
The trees where starting to change from beautiful greens to rusty colors. Yes, summer is coming to an end, even in this area of mild climate. You may think that here the green will never disappear, and in some cases it doesn’t. Some foliage starts to change color, even though it’s not as spectacular as it is on the East coast. In Seattle you better admire them quickly before a strong wind comes and blows the leaves away 🙂
I took this picture from our balcony on a sunny morning. It was the beginning of September, and everything was still quite green. Little reds and yellows were popping up here and there, with beautiful urban color contrasts. It was still warm and sitting outside with my coffee I noticed a light haze arsing from the horizon. Behind it, the mountain crests were nicely framed by the neighborhood trees. Lots of lines, shapes and layers of interest there… I didn’t want to go and take my camera and lose this great light and scenery. Here is when the phone became so useful and let me have a spry decision 🙂
I took this beautiful scene with the phone, edited on the phone and uploaded directly to WP from the phone! I think that my iPhone did a great job showing these signs of fall in Seattle. Don’t you think?
** Writing text with the phone though, is not too much fun as you may know 😉 That’s why I’m coming back now to complete the post from my laptop…
The scenery was filled to the brim with bright wonderful autumn colors. I couldn’t resist, and took a step further, by making my original travel photograph as a watercolor painting. Yes, I used the digital media for this, more precisely, the iColorama app. on my iPad. You can see it in my Fine Art America gallery, along with other pictures from Oregon and Washington states. The picture is available as art print for wall and home decor, colorful accessories and much more. Just click on it for a closer view:
… and here is a framed version of it:
Back in September 2019, I uploaded it to my “Quick Shots On The Go“, and also to the “Lines and Squares” WP challenge – It was fun 🙂
