Red At Last

Finally, a little red in the scene. This fall, colors have been a bit muted – plenty of yellow and brown, but little of the fiery orange and red that can make autumn photos so striking. This Japanese Maple is the last tree in the yard to lose its leaves, and it gave us this shot of bright red as the season ends.

Southford Falls

Southford Falls State Park in Oxford, CT

The river opens up to a trout pond and reflective pool, and then rushes down the waterfalls and cascades.  The last of this fall's colors - the yellows of the maple and beech trees - brightened up the two mile hike around the park.  Throw in a riverside boardwalk, covered bridge and observation tower, and you've got a great afternoon in a beautiful spot.

Singular trail marker (or maybe just decorative sculpture) on the Sleeping Giant White Trail.  See the rest of the story here.

misty by jim.colleran

Mist rising from Uncas Pond on a cool, foggy morning;  trees just barely visible on the opposite shore.  It was like waking up slowly - the blue sky cleared, then the fog thinned and the surrounding forest peaked through.  Finally it was day and time to get moving.

Back to Normal?

As promised, we've come back from winter to autumn. These golden leaves glow in the morning sun - what's left of them anyway.

The storm cleanup continues. Nearly half a million homes in Connecticut are without power (down from almost a million Sunday), trees and branches are still scattered around yards, woods and roads. In many towns, shelters are open and schools are closed.

Power is expected to be back everywhere by Sunday, when warm and sunny weather is forecast. In other words, back to normal.

snowbell by jim.colleran

Hopefully, this is the last snow photo I'll share for a little while. Things are warming up, the snow is melting and the roads are being cleared of fallen trees and limbs.

Back to autumn...
