Wordless Wednesday (A"Maze"Ing Corn Edition)

This is Week Two of the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. For Week One (green), I blogged about a "hot orchard visit." When it came time to take pictures for Week Two, I had to figure out how to craft a "yellow" blog out of the local corn maze (which I had originally planned to use for green week before I got tempted by an apple (hey! I wasn't the first....)).

Nothing in North Florida can compete with traditional autumn colors. But we will persist, Florida style.

We will not throw in the towel:

This search for autumnal yellow will not be a flop:

Only in Florida:

Fall needs a little bit of help down here (thanks, Michaels):

Some of the most vivid yellow was in the beauty of imperfection:

Am I seeing things or is there something spooky in this one?


At the very end of the maze, I found a nice touch of yellow:

It may not have been fall, temperature wise or color-wise, but we still enjoyed polishing off a romp through the corn maze.

Some more images - not all yellow but we are talking corn field after all and I enjoyed the fresh air and the images of nature!

These pictures were taken at the Corn Maze at the Tallahassee Automobile Museum. Proceeds from admission fees benefit the Kidz First Fund (which helps children with Fanconi Anemia), the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, and the Foundation for Leon County Schools.

The Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge is hosted by Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia of Project Alicia, and Rebecca of Bumbles & Light. The challenge welcomes photographers of all skill levels. Next week's theme is orange! The linky for orange week will be up starting on Friday, October 21.

Paula, I couldn't help but laugh at the flip flops in the corn stalks. Too funny! I needed that laugh today. It's been a rough one. I'm loving your cornfield shots, by the way. :)
Thanks for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I hope you'll join us again on Friday when we move on to...orange. :) Have a great day!
