    The trees really do glow. I love the reflection shot, too, in which the reflection glows almost more than the scene itself!

      If there is going to be ONE place where the trees light up, the dam on the Mumford River in the middle of town is the place. It just took a really long time to get there. A lot of other places, the trees are still green … but the Mumford came through.

      We had been planning to go out, but Garry didn’t feel well and it was gray and rainy … but today was lovely. Not so cold and Garry said “Let’s take our cameras and see if we can find something to shoot.” Luckily, we did find a good spot. They aren’t all good. Fall has not hit the valley evenly. Much of our local area is still green.

        That’s interesting that the fall should be so uneven! But it’s still pretty where it’s arrived!

        I still ain’t feelin’ good but it was a brief r/x to get out on the shoot. I was kneeling, bending down, crouching behind bushes, etc. for my pictures. A short time later, KA-BOOM!!

          I looked at you on your knees on the sidewalk … and I knew that was gonna hurt. It pained me just looking at you.

    Gorgeous, I especially like the picture of the glowing trees at the dam. The water is just like a mirror.

      The only place you can be reasonably sure there will be color is along the water. I’m not sure why that is, but the trees by the edge of a river or pond are always much brighter than anywhere else. Good thing because a lot of other places were still more or less green!

    Gorgeous! Happy Autumn, Marilyn! Sun is shining here in Central Maine and much needed rain isn’t scheduled to arrive for another week…not complaining mind you. πŸ™‚ xo

      I noticed the rivers are low for the first time this year. We’ve gotten a moderate amount of rain, be we are coming from a LONG drought period, so it’s going to be awhile before we’re “full” again.

      It looks like you’ve got gorgeous foliage!

      This is our “home dam” since it is right in the middle of town at our only sort of primary cross-road. It was the first thing I took pictures of when I moved here and it is still the place I go back to over and over again.

          Autumn is really New England’s glory time. It is the best part of our year and sometimes, the ONLY good part of our year.
