    1. Hello Loretta, it is good to meet you and welcome.
      I any season that road along the canal is special.....must be the running water that puts a 'spell' on one.
      Happy autumn days to you too!

  2. Stark Contrast is my all time fav!!! Lovely colours, will you really have such a short autumn, then the cold winter for how many months? It is so hard for me to envisage down here, with our so much milder temperatures. Cheers from Jean.

    1. Hi Jean, well depending on the overnight temperatures, whether or not they drop to or below freezing,the leaves quickly disappear. Then by November winter starts and we could have snow from then till April! All depends....last winter we didn't have much snow. I like the winter here, so fresh and clean. The temperatures however can be bone-numbing.....but we Canadians are tough!! lol

    1. Thanks Pat! You know what it's like when you see something that just HAS to be photographed.

  7. Hi Jim,
    Really like the stark contrast photo (with the black behind), it is amazing what nature throws up, well done! Our apples are not quite ripe here...

    1. You know that is the canal in the background......it came out very dark due to the settings I set. The best apples here for 'crisps' are the tarter ones, I particularly like Gravensteins, which is a variety that is losing it's popularity here due to the newer ones. You must have a longer season there in Normandy.

  8. Will that yummy apple crisp travel well Jim?

    Easy on the custard though, I have to watch my new slimline figure...

    1. 'Your new slimline figure'? That would be a good post, Chris!!! It's been so long!! lol Kidding, no pressure.
      I think the crisp would get very mushy travelling.

    1. It really is beautiful Terry. I am so glad we 'found' this place years ago. It is very tranquil.

  10. well, I wonder where my comment went, hmmmm, try again. We just bought a box of Honey Crisp apples and I see an apple pie and an apple crisp in my future! Great pics, so colourful, too bad it is so short lived.
