Autumn Foreshadow (August Break 2014)

I had promised that I would get back to August break - after I had missed so many. Today's prompt is "shadow" - I didn't take a new photo for this, and I also don't show a picture from Europe as I did with all the other August break prompts. This photo was taken four years ago, during a leisurely drive through our wine country - I actually found this image in my "fences" folder.

My favorite season is coming up - I can't wait for the warm and golden colors of fall. Some of our trees are already starting to change color, like the Chinese Pistache. It seems early - I guess it is due to the lack of water in our third straight year of drought. The Japanese Maple in front of our house is still green, though - it usually is at its height of fierce red color in November.

Are you looking forward to autumn or are you holding on to summer?

I adore Autumn, it is probably my favourite season.
Just the same, we are moving into Spring here - and I will welcome that too. Like you, we badly need rain.
Summer? Meh.

Das ist ein tolles 'Schattenspiel'. Sieht echt nach Herbst aus.

Ich hätte gerne noch etwas Sommer. Bei uns war der ganze August schon sehr herbstlich. Im Juli zu heiß und nun schon wieder zu kühl. Eigentlich war das gar kein richtiger Sommer.
Die Herbstfarben mag ich auch sehr gerne, aber das ganze drumherum wie Nebel, Regen und Kälte, das bräuchte ich nicht unbedingt.
