    Default The Autumn Thread 2012

    I've been remiss in my duties, I know. But what can ya do? So here is the kick off for this year's thread. As always, everyone is welcomed and encouraged to add their own photos. One of the photos is also a link to a slideshow containing more pictures for those for whom a few just isn't enough. Apologies to anyone with slow contections which give them difficulties with the slideshow portion -- the slideshow is simply the easiest and fastest way for making large numbers of photos accessible. So without further adieu ... the autumn thread.

    Ahh...I love Autumn. I need to get some photos of the vineyards when they start to turn. They are nothing but rolling hills of red and gold.

    And just a couple more for the connection speed impaired.

    I found this particular leaf very cool. I found it like this -- precariously balanced on a twig.

    THANK YOU!
    There are two things that I barely get here, and those are autumn and spring. Both take place in a week or so. Like in now it's green, you work for a week and the next time you're out it's brown in the best of cases. This time there was a shortness of brown and it is already white. One feels that the reds vanish in just a blink

    Have a great one!

    A few from a little farther north. After the remnants of hurricane Sandy blew through, not too many leaves are left on the trees - here are pics from when we had full colors!

    Niagara Falls, earlier in the season, so fewer of the leaves had turned
