The fall foliage was really poor this year around Pittsburgh. It was too long too late and the fall colors were sporadic. So I had to return to the vault to find a good image of the Autumn. This was takn a few years ago in Pike County Pennsylvania.
Finally, Autumn has arrived although the show from nature may not be as great this year because of the warm and dry weather. Searching the archives I found this. Taken a block from our old house in the Delaware National Forrest. The Pocono mountains are exquisite this time of year.
When I sit and gaze out at a pond and see the reflections on the still water it causes me to empty out my head of random thoughts. I am drawn into the reflections as if they were an alternate world to this one. I can’t not help but wonder if in that other world, someone is gazing back at me.
One of the greatest museums in the world that is housed in a former castle that is NOT The Louvre is the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Holland. It is not as large as its French counterpart but is too huge to see in a day and has many different wings with different types of art. It is also surrounded by beautiful gardens and worth a visit or two if you are in Amsterdam. You can buy a print of this image and see others on my commercial gallery.
The Revel Beach Resort in Atlantic City New Jersey is a great place to relax, gamble an dine but also a tribute to modern interior and exterior design. Throughout the entire Resort there are unusual sculptures but this one really caught my eye. It spans four stories in the central escalator area and the gold “bills” really seem to have no interconnection although you know it is all connected.

The Revel Beach Resort in Atlantic City New Jersey uses a lot of chrome and reflective surfaces in their interior design. The interior design of this Hotel is phenomenal but they also extended it outside to the valet parking area. This is a reflection at sunrise in a chrome pillar outside the hotel.

It is fall in the Pocono Mountains and the leaves are falling down creating splashes of color everywhere. While the autumn is beautiful, the leaves can create a huge mess. Sometimes there are a lot of wet leaves on a mountain road and they are easy to skid on or slip on while walking. Hopefully it doesn’t snow too early because a heavy snowfall on top of leaves equals one colossal cluster ____. However it is all worth it to see the crown of natures beauty.

Around the corner from my house is this little pond that is part of the Maple Swamp. Swamp in the Pocono Mountains means something different than it does in the South or near the equator. Sure we have the occasional Black Bear and you have to watch out for a rare copperhead but there are no large snakes and alligators.This is my neighborhood in the fall, you can buy a print at my commercial gallery by clicking here.
