Autumn’s Final Glow

I snapped these pics in the golden light of yesterday afternoon. It was the most beautiful foliage and leaf cover in our yard yet this season.

I’m so glad I savored them and I hope you’ve enjoyed my fall foliage photos!

Autumnal Chores

(Almost to) last on the autumn “honey do” list for Wayne was to pressure wash the deck, so after mowing and raking leaves he got right to it. First step was to clear the deck.

Our Rainy Maine October Peak Fall Foliage Drive

(Originally published 10/9/2016 on my old blog, Outdated By Design.) It was another wet Sunday, but that’s alright because the bright fall colors really pop in this kind of lighting. See that panoramic pic above? That’s the first one I ever shot with my new water-resistant Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.
