Living the San Francisco Dream

Autumn in the San Francisco Bay Area

autum foliage in Muir Woods, late October

 

 

I have been enjoying the many gorgeous photos of fall foliage around the country that have been shared here this week. Many of them are absolutely breath taking, while others are tantalizing with promise of an explosion of color soon to come.

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, autumn colors are more subtle in nature. While we'll soon be seeing blazing reds, oranges and yellows in garden specimen trees, this shot taken last week at the back Muir Woods is a more typical natural scene. It is a quiet scene, perfect for contemplation and restoring a sense of balance to life.

We save our brilliant colors for the sea and sky, as in the cover shot I took yesterday late afternoon from a spot on my jogging trail near Lands' End in San Francisco.

 

--- Come for a visit; Stay for a lifetime!

Beautiful photos, Lottie. I love SFO in the fall, or anytime. Our colors are pretty subtle, too, but wonderful nonetheless.

I have always thought the Bay area was the most beautiful in the country that I have visited Lottie Kendall

Last evening I was watching PBS's "Rob on the Road" and he did a segment on Muir Woods.  There was a scene that looked nearly identical to your top photograph.  I've never been there.

Lottie Kendall - Let's face it, anytime of year is a good time of year to be in San Francisco, but the Fall just feels more romantic as the leaves change color! Great photos!

Hi Belinda Spillman - I think autumn is a favorite season of many people, including me. 

Patricia Kennedy - yes, the brilliant colors of sea and sky are easy to love and create a sense of excitement, but the quiet beauty of soft greens and yellows is very restorative and calming. Having both at hand is a blessing.

Hi Jeff Dowler - we're fortunate to have both brilliance and softness in our natural pallet here in the Bay Area. I think you might have had a birthday which I missed - so sending belated wishes to you.

Good morning, Myrl Jeffcoat - that's OK that you haven't visited Muir Woods -- I've not been to Alcatraz! LOL!! Looking forward to meeting you on Sunday at Yolanda's Napa meet up.

Laura Allen, Lake Tahoe - Truckee Real Estate for Sale www.TahoeLauraLuxuryHomes.com - fall is definitely my favorite season. Would I have any luck in suggesting you join Yolanda's meet up in Napa on Sunday?

Lottie Kendall - It must fill your heart with joy to be surrounded by so much beauty 12 months out of every year. Your photographs are gorgeous. I like the softness of autumn and the gradual changing of colors. America is beautiful and you live in one of the most beautiful places in the United States.

Everyone has to love Mark Twains quote regarding his coldest winter for San Francisco lol.

Posted by Dave Martin (703) 585-4687, Making Realty Dreams a Reality #WeWillGetYouHome (Fairfax Realty) over 1 year ago

Hi David Martin - yes, that quote attributed to Mark Twain is a popular one. We're having gorgeous November weather, and Fogust (foggy August) is behind us. Enjoy autumn in your area.
