Mellowing Yellows of Autumn

Mellow yellow May, yes, it is a “thing”, and with this in mind, my contribution to bringing yellow to the fore for Denzil’s latest Nature Photo Challenge is a few yellowish tones of autumn.

Nature Photo Challenge #11: Yellow

The smell in the air has changed
it’s more crisp and clear
but sometimes the sun makes the day
and we’re grateful for a playful breeze.

A MacKenzie country area lake, which was a favourite of the Squires for catching salmon. A little secret from an experienced fisherman – throw in some stones, then your rod – bingo – because nine times out of ten, you will have fish for dinner.
Slightly less yellow, though, one that reflects our current weather, challenging raindrops creating big puddles.

Always fun to join in with others for a blast of creative photography – if you feel the same, head on over to Denzils latest Nature Photo Challenge #11 – Yellow

  1. I totally forgot about autumn when looking for yellow in my photos (and sunsets too, oops) so I really enjoyed your entry with all the lovely autumn yellows. I especially love the reflection photos, wow!

  2. Fabulous yellow images Suzanne, especially the Arrowtown one and the lake with its beautiful reflections. It’s interesting that while we in the northern hemisphere associate yellow in May with late spring flowers, for you it’s all about the autumn leaves ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I still have vivid memories of all those gorgeous UK spring flowers, especially the bluebells.
      I think my images are on the yellow spectrum. Pushed my luck ๐Ÿ˜„

    1. Thanks very much, Pauline. We need to head further south to get right into the autumn colours. Having said that, McClaren Falls out of Tauranga are spectacular in autumn.

    1. Thanks very much, Jo. We do have some spectacular scenery. “Now, if I were a fisherwoman…” sounds like the beginning of a good poem or song ๐Ÿ˜„ I’m not one either, though do enjoy a good feed of fish.
