Still cold and wet here. But it wasn't actually raining when it was dog walking time. The gold leaves really seemed to glow under the gray skies in the afternoon light. As I walk toward the cemetery the tree in the foreground is an aspen, and you can see the line of trees in the background that is the edge of the cemetery.
None of these pictures is that spectacular. But I just liked them, and I didn't touch them up at all- they caught the light intensity pretty accurately. As I pass that aspen tree and head down to the cemetery this section of trees is quite dense.
This is the city cemetery, and it has an older section and a new one. The older one is on my side of the road, with lots of trees, and I like that a lot. Of the two large trees, the left one with the horizontal branch is where I tested the new cache hanging idea.
This view shows some of the sumac in front of the gold. Some years they are bright red, but the reds aren't as good this year. Even so, there is a nice blend of colors.
The most open area on my side gives this view. I think this is my favorite of these pictures. I like the way the darker background just sort of pulls me in and the leaves around the graves.
So, none of this is very original or spectacular, but it's there for me to enjoy day after day, and I do love it.
