It was time for another walk up the lane past our house. The sky was October blue, the air silent except for the chattering of arguing squirrels, a few piercing birdcalls and chipmunks scurrying through the leaves.
The colours deepening more every day, though it hasn't been as spectacular as some years..
The morning fog makes for a softer tinge.
And some parts are still very green. It's been a late autumn.
Though the colours were starting to turn around the lake.
From among the fallen leaves a spectacular fungus had popped up.
The vivid red sumac and the tapestried hills behind - typical around here and you almost get blase about it..
More red in the undergrowth
And some oak leaves enjoying the sun.
Though we still haven't had a frost.
Wondering when the cold's going to come racing in.
