Before Fall Colors Disappear

Friday afternoon I took time off to go an walk around our city’s lake. Though the winds roared the day before, by Friday they’d calmed enough that the mid-60s temps didn’t require a jacket, but there were still lots of waves running the water to the shore. A perfect day for relaxing, communing with nature (especially the ducks), and simply letting all the beautiful blue shades and autumn hues touch my soul. Now with the cold snap that came Saturday, I figure the leaves will all be brown and most of the tree limbs bare, but I have evidence of my magical afternoon to look back on when I want a little calm and beauty in my life. I’m sharing six of the shots below. Enjoy!3
