If you live where there is beautiful fall foliage be sure to get out and look at it. Whether a drive through your own neighborhood, an older part of town with large trees, a park, through hills or mountains, or just down a country road a fall leaf tour is a fun and relaxing activity.

Take your time. This is not something to be rushed through. Pack a lunch and make a day of it. Take the kids along and help them identify the types of trees by the leaves. You may even want to collect a few leaves for craft projects.

 

Autumn from a Train

Several years ago Bob and I drove to Iowa to take a scenic ride on a train to celebrate our anniversary.  Autumn in the Midwest can be spectacular and that year Mother Nature outdid herself.  Some of the shots of fall leaves you have been enjoying and will continue to enjoy for at least a few weeks to come are from that trip.  Bob took some excellent shots of fall foliage on this trip.   Some of these photos have “special effects” courtesy of shooting out the window of a moving train.  So take a few minutes to sit back, relax and enjoy autumn from a train.

“Summer is already better, but the best is autumn.
It is mature, reasonable and serious, it glows
moderately and not frivolously … It cools down,
clears up, makes you reasonable …”Valentin
