Blue spirit of the Fall

At the end of October I was driving on country roads looking for the nice landscape to paint.
I noticed the small water stream under the bridge, and decided to come close. It took me some time to climb down between rocks and fallen woods, but, when I had opportunity to step on the safe place and look around, I got frozen in astonishment. It was late afternoon and there, under the bridge, the sun rays were broken with evaporation from the water, small privacy of surrounding trees, and early evening lights. All of them together painted the tiny nature world around with blue colors. I?ve never seen this kind of strange effect before. The blue lights covered yellow leaves making them look purple and ultramarine. Rocks, woods, even the splashes on the water were blue. I saw the bird sitting on the stone and sharing this enigmatic view with me. I was dreaming about blue flowers and fairy worlds which could exist only in Disneyland. My dreaming brush was helping me to place this blue world on canvas, and save it like a spirit of blue Fall.
