Went out looking for autumn color last week. My area is still far from peak. Some trees showed color here and there. Overall, I did not get much from the Beaver Lake Nature Center near Baldwinsville, New York. When out looking for landscapes do not overlook micro landscapes like these mushrooms and ferns I noticed on a fallen log next to where I was photographing. As you can see by the green ferns, at the time I took this, autumn had a ways to go. However, we did have a wide spread frost over the weekend which should spur autumn along.
