Late afternoon golds with a splash of orange on the east end of the lake. I love that carved out old tree bole on the trunk to the left. You've seen pics of it before, and you'll see plenty more.
My apartment building is just surrounded by a riot of colors--the leaves seem to be peaking now. We've had a fair amount of brownout, but I think this is being the prettiest autumn we've had in this area for a few years. Just north and west of us seems to be a lot more brownout, as I observed on my drive to Westminster, but down here near the DC swamp lands in the Chesapeake, Potomac, and Anacostia basin, we're getting good fall colors. My commute along the eastern part of the Beltway has been gorgeous this week as well. Being out in this magnificence is the only thing that keeps the election panic at bay--cats and reading help as well--so I'm getting what walks I can between work and med appointments. I hope you're all hanging int here. *hugs you all*
