a field of cornstalks yet to be cut down.
i see this large maple most days, surrounded by evergreens, which makes the color even more brilliant.
maple leaves in the afternoon sun.
a maple standing solitary in a bog, shot with a telephoto lens.
lots of folks decorate with pumpkins from their gardens. i love these gracing an old stone wall.
golden-yellow oak leaves.
a marshy area nearby. this is one of my favorite shots. i like how muted the yellows, golds, and browns are and how the red and even the green contrasts.
looking up the river, wishing i could see farther around the bend.
horses basking in the autumn sunshine. man and beast enjoy this last hurrah of summer, knowing that very soon the air will change.
a meadow nearby. i often see deer up the slope, but i think it's too early today.
looking to the north
not a great shot - i was trying to capture the leaves in the breeze as they cascaded to the ground.
this is fall!
