Autumn is Ripeness and Color

"Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity;
but it is also breadth, and depth, and distance. What person can stand with autumn
on a hilltop and fail to see the span of his or her world and the meaning of the rolling

hills that reach to the far horizon?" Hal Borland

As I continued to practice my newly learned skills with the camera while the sky was cloudy and it was nearing dusk ( a good photo time says Scott Kelby) I was drawn to the bright reds and yellows that stood out in the lingering light. The small crab apples appeared like small frozen cherries after the rain.Annie and Shelby waited in the gazebo by the fire on this cool, rainy day instead of following me around for the photo shoot. As I felt the dampness seeping through my socks I decided they are pretty smart dogs!
