When I looked back over the last ten weeks, I got the feeling of how incredible it has been. It started with a trip to North and South Dakota to visit my daughter and photograph the landscape and wildlife of the rugged Badlands in Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Upon returning to New York, I visited the LaFayette Apple Festival after photographing the Apple Run. The valley trees were close to peak colors as seen above the many tents used by the festival.
This next photo is a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image of the Family Gere plot in Oakwood Cemetery. For your information, Richard Gere is a native of North Syracuse, New York. I have no information that this is his family’s but it could be.
Traveling down to Walt Disney World, I found the Magic Kingdom all decked out for Halloween. While it did not feel like autumn to me in the 80 degree F temperatures, the spirit and colors of the holiday was fully represented.
With lake effect snow in the forecast for this weekend, it is looking like my walk at Beaver Lake Nature Center will be the last for this year in temperatures over 60 degrees. Fittingly, the beech trees are one of the last to drop their golden leafs.
As I said, it was an incredible Autumn of 2010. This is my submission for Assignment 10: Autum 2010. Look for a recap next week of all your wonderful submissions. In the meantime, I will be changing this blog’s format tomorrow so be prepared for a little chaos over the next couple of days. To my United States readers, have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving weekend.
