Last Yellows: Knoxville, TN

Perhaps it happens to all of us, but today as I was driving to work, I saw something that compelled me to pull over, grab my camera, and snap away.  The morning sun (perhaps stronger now after the time change) streamed across the lawn of  Graystone Presbyterian Church in South Knoxville.  In those few brief moments in the early light, I had the sense that this — autumn’s last glow — is truly a gift for all to enjoy.




Later on in the afternoon while walking along Cherokee Boulevard in West Knoxville, I was rewarded a second time as late-day sun cast a softer glow, transposing those last yellows into warm oranges.

    Great, colorful photos Rusha. Our deciduous trees are pretty much at their peak here on St. Simons. Nothing like these colorful beauties, but it’s a nice change for us. Have a fun and decadent Thanksgiving! ~James

      The color is now gone here, too. Winter weather has settled in, so who knows when I’ll get outside to hang the greenery!! But I love living where we have 4 distinct seasons — If winter comes, can spring be far behind? Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

      I’m not sure why I’m just now seeing your comment, but please know that I appreciate it. You are so right about the colors — we are fortunate to see the beauty of all seasons. Right now, however, the trees are brown and not so pretty. But they’ll come to life around March — we just have to wait!

    Just beautiful, one of the most lovely colors of fall without which all the other colors would not be so outstanding. You’re very gifted in the photography department, see your putting that camera to good use 🙂 🙂

It makes our day to hear from you.
