Photography of Roy Thoman

Autumn in Florida, it does exist.

Back in October I was looking at a few of my favorite blogs and most of them had posted spectacular Autumn photos. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, the Autumn colors were spectacular! It was one of my favorite times of the year, not only for great photography, I just liked the Autumn. I have been living in Florida for 9 years now, so one of the things I have been missing was Autumn. So when I was looking at all of the beautiful Autumn images on the other blogs, I started thinking about Autumn and being in Florida. I have found if you know where and when to look, you will find little hints of Autumn here and there. You will not see the beautiful grandiose, colorful landscapes that you find in the north, but just little splashes of color scattered here and there. If you go looking for Autumn in Florida in October, you’re not going to find it. This year it started a bit early, we had an early cold snap and I think that may have triggered an earlier than normal Autumn. It seemed to get going in mid to late November. I have noticed in past years that it has been getting started in late November to early December and peaking around Christmas. I think because it starts so late and is not the bold statement that occurs in the north, most people overlook it. Also it gets spread out over a longer period of time. I took these photos just in the last week. So if you find yourself in Florida for Christmas, don’t think winter, think Autumn.

    Nice pictures! We have the color change here as well, but most would think not…

    • Thank You Keli! So what part of the world are you from? I’m guessing someplace like Florida where you would not normally think about the Autumn colors.

        Close, I’m in Georgia… south of Atlanta thank goodness…. I’ll try to post some of my pictures soon. I seem to be caught in the web of stupidity of politicians…LOL, but I’m trying to get out or satisfy both.

      • Oh yes your just up the road from here. 🙂 My best therapy is to take my camera for a walk and capture my moments in time!
