View 92: Autumn

Now that the Autumnal Equinox has passed, I went out looking for signs of autumn at the Beaver Lake Nature Center near my hometown of Baldwinsville, New York. I headed to the Bog Trail because I knew I’d find the first signs there as trees and shrubs on a bog are very stressed. Stressed because the bog environment is very acidic as nature proceeds to transform the stagnate wetland to terra firma using Sphagnum mosses as her main architect.

Another sign of autumn is the flocks of migrating Canadian Geese using Beaver Lake as a stop off on their way to points south for the winter months.

    Both are beautiful optimistic autumn photos. You are right about the light, it has such a big influence on our mood. I like the balance you have created here.

  2. Love the fall colors in the first picture. Sadly, we don’t get much of that here, so I’m hoping to see lots more fall colors on your blog.
