This year I went on a quest with the goal of finding fall colors. Here’s a 4-part haiku story based on pictures taken on the Mount Hood Scenic Byway in Oregon.
Deep in the mountains
Mount Hood surveys the landscape
Draped in mossy robes
Rooted in shades of autumn
Fall’s gala begins
Cliffside rocks rejoice
Baring their columnar arms
Dancers cast in stone
Settling over the foothills
Autumn’s party ends

Wow Siobhan, this is gorgeous work! The images are wonderfully brought to life by your haikus (or is it vice versa?). Quite beautiful either way.
Thanks, Tina! I realized I didn’t have many fall foliage pictures so this year I sought them out. Wish the colors could stay all year long. 🙂
Ah but then they wouldn’t be so special!
Great fall shots! I agree fall comes and goes too quickly.
Thanks! I love the fall. 🙂
Wonderful, Siobhan! I personally love the bright fall colors against the dark evergreen. I love that view of Mt Hood…I’ve seen that amazing view even from the 97!
Thank you, Terri! Yes, Mount Hood stands out from many vantage points. Lucky us!
Oooh. Beautiful shot of da’ Hood.
Thanks! It does like to pose for portraits. 🙂
Lovely picks all of them! Mount Hood is a beauty.
Thanks, Ann-Christine! Yes, I agree about Mount Hood. 🙂
