This morning as I was leaving for work, I saw what is represented in the first two images from my drive way. These are the days when I’m glad I live out in the country, many miles from the nearest big town or city. It’s great having the relitive peace and quite (I can hear the occassional car or truck on the road near by), and the dark nights (pretty decent for night photography). It’s hard to imagine living in a city or large town on days like this. I included both images because I’m not sure which composition I like the best; each has elements that speak to me in how they are captured.
The other images were taken at Horse Pond in Salem, CT, on my way into town to teach a personal finance class called Financial Peace University. Fall is my favorite time of year, and in New England, it’s even better because of the fall foliage. I actually met an Irish couple during my flight back from Spain (the Dublin – Boston leg) who fly to the US to be “leaf peepers” almost every year. It’s great to live in such a beautiful area!!
For those of you who are near/in CT, I have planned a Fall Foliage hike at Sleeping Giant State park that is open to anyone who wants to join. Of course there will be lots of photography, so leave a comment and I’ll give you details if you are interested!
