10.19.2015 Fall Reflection

Not a recent shot unfortunately.  It does represent repeated visits however.  I drove by here yesterday to find little color, but have visited it for years waiting for a nice display which happened for this image in 2011.  Although we are running behind, I don’t think much will happen here in Pelham’s Hawley Reservoir.

    That’s stunning. It’s quite interesting to go back to the same places and see how different the scene looks in the seasons and even between regular days in summer. When there’s a scene like this you have to grab it.

  2. A little bit of beautiful on a Monday morning is always a welcome sight.

  3. This photo made me dizzy. Seeing double here. Perfect scene in my humble opinion. The colors and the reflection make this fantastic.

    Lovely. a perfect reflection with just enough distortion in the water to make the vibrant colours look dreamy. We’ve had stunning colours further north this year; alas all gone in the last three days.

    • Thanks, Bunty.
      I was lucky to get such a calm surface for the reflection. We’ve been losing our leaves rapidly over the last several days with below freezing temperatures and gusty wind. We are now back above 32° at night but most of the foliage has suffered.


  5. When I reflect on this image I find it a pretty scene.
    I’m sorry to hear that this year’s foliage up there has suffered, first from drought and now from freezes.

    The break in the low, green foliage just to the right of center almost suggests a path has been worn down to the water. Wouldn’t it be fun to beach a kayak there, and follow the path into the woods?

    Whose woods these are, I think I know —
    the warden’s in the village, though.
    He’ll never see me stopping here
    to take in autumn, nice and slow…

    (With apologies to you-know-who)

    • Speaking of “you know who”, here he is in quiet conversation with our most famous former citizen…Bob and Emily. I’ve never made a picture there so that’s why the link.

      There are deer, of course, and moose too in those woods (that’s whose they really are) so it is quite likely there is a path in that spot. A kayak would not be needed (plus as a drinking water supply it is frowned upon, and the woods are accessible by foot. I’ve never wandered around in there, but it is more than likely to be a path to the water for the critters.
