I tried my darnedest this year to keep the camera from blocking my view and enjoyment of the autumn. In this season, there are photos everywhere I look. I stop on the way to work, I stop on the way home, to bathe in the breathtaking sights. Alas, too many fascinating subjects called out to me, and I did, in fact, take pictures of all those autumn-y things; colorful foliage, golden sunrises, rich, red sunsets, deer on the move, migrating geese. Somewhere in there I became obsessed with capturing the texture of water droplets after the rain, on a variety of surfaces. I also captured a number of frames of the wide variety of mushrooms and other fungi that seem to leap from the ground on a daily basis in this season. I tried to capture a little sense of the state of the trails, and the in-between season, between fall and winter. It’s one of my favorites.
A break from the monthly Galleries, this is a seasonal one. Photography, like all the other facets of my life, advances and recedes in activity level, based on other distractions and goings-on. Readying for winter occupies a goodly portion of one’s time in autumn. Rest assured, the camera is never far from me, and we’ll continue to compile images for your perusal and entertainment.

Did you see the heron? Neither did I. I was shooting frames of the creek, and after 4 or 5 shots the heron jumped up and flew toward me, and under the bridge on which I stood!
Take care and keep in touch,
