I know everyone is showing fall colors right now, but I can't help it! This is what makes me joyful today, and that's what this blog is about. I think today was probably the peak color. It started raining mid-afternoon and that will bring the leaves down quickly. In fact, the last four pictures were taken in the rain, which should give you an idea of how great the color is!
This one is about two miles from my house. The main road has quite a few places with great mixed trees. I think this kind of stand is my favorite.
Even an ordinary city street looks great with natural seasonal decor.
The next two were taken on Nurenburg Road on the way to Nordhouse Dunes. No, I didn't get to go play. I had a case to do out that way. But it is all wooded, and really, you could just take a picture every 50 feet and they'd all be good. I picked a couple that came out best given the rain and the light.
The monochrome effect is always awesome. This next one is softer, but I like the way the road opening glows.
I stopped and went back to catch this stand of willows swaying in the breeze.
While I was taking the pictures a donkey serenaded me. Immediately an old Girl Scout round popped into my head that I hadn't thought of in decades! "Sweetly sings the donkey/ at the break of day./ If you do not feed him / This is what he'll say / Heehaw, heehaw, heehaw, heehaw, heehaw." That's my intellectual contribution for the day.
Finally, This is in by my own driveway! Not bad. Sumac and grape vines.
I head for work in a few hours, and hope to sleep away most of tomorrow. See you then. (Although I hope to sneak in a tiny adventure in the afternoon.)
