abundance

 this is what i saw at 6:45 
on my way to work. 
i tootled along
and then i pulled over
couldn't help it
 i turned around and went back
 pulled out the camera 
and got out
 the geese were honking away
 i disturbed them
it seems
 i kept looking and shooting
 then four took off
 the color was shot with early light
and the red maples showing their true colors

Incredible colours, love autumn, here we are going into spring, and then a hot summer is forecast, I hope they are wrong.

Oh. My. Gosh. It is rare we see color like that here, as it and requires the cold to come before the rain instead of the other way around. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

I was just loving the colours, and going with the flow, enjoying their magic; and then I saw what you saw - the geese! Nature does it so well - we are fortunate observers indeed.

all, i just couldn't drive by, though i tried, because i thought i had to try to capture the colors. there in a low marsh, where the cold is early, and the gees, well, they were LOUD! an ecotone in every sense, jean!

Spectacular! What a colorful stand. Here in Western Mass, we have just a little bit of color showing here and there.

V- there are times when it is OK to stop soak in the absolute glory or nature; and maybe even be a little late for work. Thanks for sharing such gorgeous colours. B
