Fall Foliage 2009 秋影金波

Refreshing 素靜

客問: 入秋多時,仍未見你今年的紅葉照,是否曾經滄海難為水,京都歸來不看葉?

实情並非如此。今年夲來是計劃去Vermont州拍幾個經典景點 (如Jenne Farm)的,只是天不做美,細雨弄中秋,自十月中至十一月中,每個周末不是陰天,刮風,就是下雨;加上老妻工作繁忙,所以就行不得也哥哥。其实十月初曾上新罕布夏州看葉,且當日天色甚佳,可惜巧遇Sandwich鎮的農展會,所經路線附近道路全都塞住了。鄉村小道,進退唯谷,只好既來之,則安之。参觀完農展會已近黄昏, 所以看的不多,拍的也少。待整理後再po上來。

今年不知為何,院子的梣樹形容憔粹,顏色不佳,好像感染了什麽似的。倒是屋前的楓樹在夕陽下,秋影轉金波,黄澄澄的,煞是好看。

Magic 黄葉滿庭秋

I know, it is this magic season again. Around the same time last year, I was busy walking the streets of Kyoto trying to take some pictures of the beautiful momeji. This year, I was hoping to focus on a few classic scenes in Vermont, like the famous Jenne farm. Unfortunately, all the weekends between mid-October and mid-November were rainy or overcast. Besides, my wife had been busy with her take home work, so I think Jenne Farm will have to wait until next year.

One afternoon while I was raking the leaves, I noticed that the maple in front of the house was turning golden under the sun. I took a few pictures.

夲想替這幾張燦爛奪目的照片找個適當的題兒,不但枯腸欠奉,就連網上亦缺如。想乃因古人見黄葉,悲白髮, 没有幾句好話。就好像錢起所寫的一樣:

歲去人頭白,秋來樹葉黃, 搔頭向黄葉,與爾共悲傷。

這倒令我想起中學時國文老師麥老師所介紹的一首打油詩,詩云:

人見白頭悲,我見白頭喜,幾許少年亡,未見白頭死。

我信奉這首詩的旨意,就像這幾張照片一樣,金光闪耀,燦爛奪目,只要夕陽好,又那怕近黄昏呢。至於”好”嘛,”手有黄庭樽有酒,少風波處便為家”不就是好嗎? 雖然我的酒是Trader Joe $2.99的貨色,也是好啊!

—————————————————————————————————————————-

The next day, the weather turned sour again, heavy rain and gusty wind brought down a lot of leaves. The following two pictures were taken after the weather was clear.

拍完上面幾張,沒两天,天色驟变,風急雨大,葉落了不少。下面是天色放晴後所拍, 雖然不是金黄耀目,卻亦清靚闲靜,另有一番情趣。
