Autumn Country Road

Country roads in Pennsylvania are special in the Autumn. We use to live in Pike County and travel this road almost every day. Familiarity can cause boredom but this road always seemed to be changing. In the spring the colors were faint but in autumn they were explosive. The same is true where we now live in Pittsburgh. You don’t have to go far to find a road with explosive autumn color and the drive becomes the destination.

North Park Exploratory Mission

We began to follow a Facebook group called North Park Eagles. We had no idea there were Eagles there. Growing up in Pittsburgh we were more familiar with the city Parks and South Park than North Park. So we decided to search for the Eagles realizing we would probably not find any. We didn’t but we now know the park a little better and where o search for them.

Still it was a beautiful day and we had a great hike and found one curious young buck that left his group in the tall grass to check us out.

Autumn Reflections

I am of a firm belief that good photographs tell a story, reveal a mystery or in some way createan emotional response. I do record scenes just because they are pretty but rarely offer them for sale or publish them, I identify more with Henri Cartier-Bresson than Ansel Adams. Sure I could have just take a picture of this colorful foliage. However, the story for me is how the reflections of the trees change the nature of the swampy wetland.

End of Summer Sunrise

The change of light that occurs as you approach the fall equinox is quite dramatic. The light becomes more golden and softer making for dramatic sunrises even in the absence of clouds.

Fall Reflections

I may be jumping the gun but nature’s color show is about to begin. This one was taken a few years ago before the impacts of global warming were so evident. Now it seems a lot of trees are dropping their leaves early and its been a few years since we have a had a show like this one.

Window with A View

Most of the time when you travel and stay in hotels near the highway you get your choice of view. You can view the front parking lot or rear parking lot. As a Marriott Gold Elite member I almost always get upgraded. This time it was with it.

This is the view from the Aloft in Lexington Massachusetts. We saw a variety of animals and birds during pour stay and still had the convenience of being close to the highway.

Autumn in The Pocono Mountains

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.

Pocono Wetlands

Mountain Wetlands

Maple Swamp located in the Delaware National Forest of Pennsylvania is labeled a swamp on the maps. However, people who live in or near swamps prefer to cal them wetlands . In all four seasons they look different. I think they provide beautiful scenes in the autumn.

Pittsburgh Autumn

Pittsburgh is a city of hills and trees. The hills create the diverse neighborhoods that make up Pittsburgh’s blend of ethnic cultures from Germantown to Polish Hill. The trees are a wonderful blend of hardwood trees that make for amazing parks and spectacular fall colors. This view of downtown from Schenley Oval.
