The orange light of autumn is the best light for naps

I’ve decided that there’s something magical about orange light.
Just ask Isla…when she wakes up.

Somehow, when sunlight filters thru autumn leaves it gets that orange quality which lulls you to sleep.

Maybe it’s just my fancy, but I really believe it’s different.

Calming, sleepy, serene, quiet.

Shhh, you know you want to close your eyes too. πŸ™‚

    What lovely photos. And you are so right about wanting to close my eyes now. You have a way with capturing serenity in your photos.

    Yes, I want to close my eyes to it! And I completely agree with you. Autumnal orangeness does give something special.

    Another beautiful piece in words and pictures. I love autumn light from the first rays to the last. Who is the sleeping Isla? Love her name.

    Mmm, I love naps. I’ve never thought about how much light can create the perfect ambiance for sleeping. Your photos really highlight it!

    Love naps and love fall…the downside of living in Paradise. I would love to beam over for some frost on the pumpkin and warm apple cider.

    Love the napping baby picture, especially the glimmer of light on her hand. I feel like I just soaked in some nature by seeing your beautiful photos. Thanks!

    Oh definitely, naps–bake cookies, bread, make tea, That’s all in my imagination though, Florida is way too green and warm for any of that…

    Pretty colors. We’re getting nice color around here, too. And, I’m about to head south to extend the season a little longer. Everyone thought the drought would kill the fall color, but we are all pleasantly surprised to be wrong.

    Yes, I want to curl up on my hammock, with a blankie wrapped around me, and something to read until I doze off, and when I awaken, some of those colored leaves will have worked their way off the trees and onto me.
