View 198: Indian Summer

Indian summer is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs in the autumn. It is defined as a period of above normal temperatures after a killing frost.  Those conditions fit the period of weather here in upstate New York perfectly the last few days.  With autumn colors starting to be displayed, I visited the LaFayette Apple Festival over the weekend.

Another reason for being at the Festival was to photograph the Apple Run consisting of a Family Fun Run, 5K and 15K running events.  It was a beautiful day for a run through the valley. If you are looking for photos from the Apple Run, CLICK HERE.

This stretch of weather is going to continue for most of the week. Got to enjoy it while I can!

    It has been glorious, hasn’t it? Love these shots.
    Our color is quite dull thus far. Thinking about taking a little ride into the Adirondacks today to see what I can see. 🙂

    Our colours in Nova Scotia are not as glorious as this, but we are enjoying the marvellous Indian Summer here too.

    Get outside everyone and enjoy it while you can.

    Beautiful Scott! We are enjoying this wonderful weather too, but we haven’t had a killing frost yet – so I guess we don’t qualify as Indian Summer? I’ll take it however Mama Nature wants to let us have it though! That hillside must be glorious when the color is fully in.

    I do love the vibrant colors at this time of the year, and love the Fall leaf colors in the last image.
