I always say that autumn is my favorite season...and today was beyond beautiful. Indian Summer, they call it.
I spent a long lunch hour today doing some 'leaf peeping' at Short Creek and driving along a couple of back roads. It was a day I wished I didn't have to be anywhere or do anything but smell the scent of fall and see the colors of nature.
I took a few pictures and you can see those on my personal Facebook page, but I wanted to share this particular photo and the one above here on my blog. The roadway above looks like it could lead anywhere...! And, I love the way the sun in shining in the upper corner of the photo below and how everything just looks...CALM...
“The hazy, cloudless skies of Indian Summer. Leaves scurrying down the street before the wind. The cold shiver from an arctic blast. Indian Summer. The last warmth of the sun. Chilly mornings and glorious warm afternoons. The Harvest Moon. The Hunter's Moon. The Rainy Season. Dry corn stalks clattering in the wind. The touch of frost on grass and window pane. The smell of burning leaves.” -Keith C. Heidorn
