Falling in the Fall

Time for some local photos.

On Friday morning, I awoke early, which I often do, and Sue awoke late, as she often does. This resulted in her coffee not being exactly delicious when she got around to it.

You see, I make the coffee when I arose, and our coffee-maker will keep it warm for up to 4 hours, but we discovered on that day that at the end of 4 hours, the brew would be less than wonderful.

After a bit, closer to lunch time really, she wondered if we could go out, get a coffee and take it to the park.

We hadn't been out much in the week and a half since we returned from the cottage, so it seemed like a viable plan.

The weather has mostly been overcast and dreary recently, but for about the half hour that we were there, the sun decided to shine upon us.

And ... there were still enough leaves on the trees, as well as on the ground, to make for a highly pleasurable stroll.

I had taken the camera, just in case, and it turned out unexpectedly well.

The wind was blowing and leaves were falling, so I took a few shots from one position, knowing that I could composite them later in Photoshop. I should say 'thinking' and not 'knowing' because I didn't know how well it would work.




But this is the one that worked best for me — yellow maple leaves falling against a background of red maples.



You see the carpet of red in the above photo? Well, I got closer to emphasize it and got a good result.



There are more, but I think that will do for today. Sometimes, I publish too many photos, and if others are like me, people just start to scroll by quickly, but I think 4 is a good number.

All these photos are lovely. All because the coffee was less that desirable that morning.
