We are already beginning to have some fall colors too. Not sure why it's starting so early. Beautiful shot you took.

You still are taking photos of the clouds. I guess for sky watch.

This summer never really got started and now its ending .. lovely clouds .. and mine, well, I took so many photos of the sun setting that afternoon ... the one I posted this week is one of the few vertical ones .. for a change of pace!

Pietro said...

Very lovely scenery, Carletta!
The clouds seem to follow the line of the trees!

Susan at Stony River said...

Our crab apple has a few red leaves too; I said that it must have seen the school bus go by yesterday! LOL

Vita Stunder said...

Autumn is in the air..

Oh yes, automn is coming, but I kind of like it.:) Beautiful sky shot.

Robin said...

I saw a few in New England as well, but in a futile bid to keep summer from ending I refused to photograph them. Didn't work, they kept showing up anyway.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, we're seeing a hint of them, too! And, yes, say it isn't so!!! Terrific shot though! Great clouds!

Enjoy!

Oh, it's just those few leaves that turn red early...like every year (I HOPE!).

Welcome back - I assume you've returned. ;-)

Carol said...

Nice shot of a beautiful sky...and yes it does look like a hint of red in those leaves already!

Lee said...

I actually prefer autumn. I love when the leaves change colors and begin to fall.

Carletta: Aw yes, it won't be long until Fall. Neat shot of the tree into the sky.

Beautiful blue, white and green composition.

Babooshka said...

No, not all ready. It could be here soon too looking at that sky. What has happened to summer this year. Makes for a great shot though.

Ebie said...

Hi Carletta, I am so looking forward to the Fall. Love the clouds!

Photo Cache said...

Oh this reminds me August is on its way out too, which means, yes, more red leaves soon.

Happy skywatching.

Prospero said...

Hi Carletta, nice to see you back. Lovely fall colors.

Deborah Godin said...

At least the clouds are nice and summery-looking, in spite of those telltale bits of red!

Regina said...

So clear and beautiful. Well captured.

George said...

We're getting some red leaves as well, and I'm not ready for that! But you got a great capture of not only the leaves but the clouds as well.

Naturegirl said...

((((((No-o-o-)))))))Too soon!!!

judi said...

frankly, I am ready for fall. It's my favorite one of the seasons.

Dimple said...

We have a few fall-looking leaves, too. Beautiful shot!

Debbie said...

I want to hang on to summer a bit longer too.

Happily Retired Gal said...

Actually the tree in the neighbor's front yard is showing some color changes in the leaves too. How can that be when we've really not had summer yet??? Beautiful skies ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Kilauea Poetry said...

So true..it's sad. All my beautiful shower trees and that are dropping blossoms. Lovely still. Have a great weekend-

Arlene said...

wowww..so summer will almost be over? Nice skywatch photo, Carletta.

Happy weekend!

Ellie said...

Interesting! Looks like the new leaves are red - may be they turn green as they mature.
Glad to see you back. Hope you had nice vacation!

Tricia said...

Sorry about that last comment, I was trying to leave a graphics pic saying I like your photo.

Quilly said...

Beautiful skies.

judi said...

Hey! I forgot to say welcome back!!

WELCOME BACK!!

Raven said...

Welcome home! Leaves are turning here too. How can summer be almost gone? Lovely skywatch shot.

Arija said...

No use fighting it, it comes to all of us, the changing seasons and age...

magiceye said...

blooming clouds... :) !

Marju said...

Beautiful photos!

lv2scpbk said...

Wonderful looking sky.

Mary said...

Beautiful sky....I'm not ready for fall yet, but we'll welcome its beauty when it comes.

Mark Kreider said...

I am clinging to summer trying to make it last a bit longer. The red leaves only serve to make my feeling more intense, though fall, when it comes is so beautiful.

impossible sandy

Martha in PA said...

I saw a lone red leaf lying in a field where I was photographing wildflowers the other day, a promise of autumn!

My SWF

Judy said...

I am pretending I do not see them. Not in your photo, and not here, either. So you have posted a lovely photo of clouds!
(Who says you can't live in Denial?)

Denise said...

They certainly do and this is a magnificent shot Carletta. Those clouds are spectacular.

Gattina said...

Oh nooooooo please !! I hate automn ! I prefer to look at your beautiful fluffy white clouds in the blue sky !

Adrienne in Ohio said...

The clouds seem to be mimicking the shape of the tree. I haven't really noticed any fall color yet. It will be here before I know it, though.

Titania said...

The stormy clouds still look summery; perhaps the red are "only" flowers or new growth!

Janice Thomson said...

Here too. Summer was awfully darn short this year. Super photo Carletta.

Janie said...

We're seeing a little yellow on the cottonwood trees. Yes, autumn is on the way.
