Summer has gone – Fall is Here!

18 10 2010

Yesterday we had to make a trip over to Falls Lake to see the autumn colours.  I think we’ll still have a couple of weeks before the leaves all go, but the drive was beautiful and the hillside beginning to show the variety of colour.

We liked this chipmunk crossing.

There were orange leaves,

yellows

and reds.

These lichen always amaze me.

From the lake you look down the valley. This is a holding tank for the Hydro electric turbines further down.

I always think this is a Scottish Highland Glen.

The colours are just a feast for the eyes.

Can you spot the bald eagle sitting in this tree?

Each turn in the path seemed to produce another blast of colour.

On the way home I took these photos at a different lake. What a great location for a cottage!

We’ll walk at Falls Lake over the winter, but it will be a very different walk without the fall colours.

Wow. Thank You showing all these so beautiful fall photos. I enjoyed all of them. Those lightens You photographed are very similar to those we have here. If they are same, then they are lichens which are eaten by reindeer. Although I live in the South, but on a ridge, in our neighboring wood we have plenty of them.

My favorite photo is that red Mable leaves. It is aweful.

Thank You presenting these photos and I enjoyed taking a tour with You to the area of Falls Lake.

Thank you for your kind comments, they mean a lot coming from such a great photographer as you. Aren’t the colours amazing at this time of the year! But, winter will have it’s own glories.
Have a good week-end.
