On my most recent walk I decided not to get in our car, but rather to just venture off on foot to my local river and creek paths, those which I hadn't been by to see for awhile. It was like visiting an old friend. "Hello tree. Good to see you again. You look redder!" Yes, autumn had begun its triumphant arrival in my absence, but that didn't mean I couldn't spice up my pictures with even a bit more color, if you know what I mean.
The days have been perfect here, faultlessly so, which, alas, put an awful lot of people out on these trails, including, I think, an entire large geology class from one of the local Universities.
I did find a dead bird though by the falls. It looked as if some animal had killed it and eaten only its heart.
I had that curious scene all to myself.
