I captured this photo at a pond near an apartment complex. The reflections, water lilies and grasses were eye-catching. Even with the overcast sky, the colors speak to me.
This old cemetery with the interesting gravestones and leaf color in the background called out to me. In the first photograph, the rock wall leads my eye into the photo.
The obelisks, upright headstones, in the second photo speak of a time when size and design of grave markers reflected the wealth and status of the deceased. Note the lichen on theses stones.
The lovely orange foliage of the red maple far surpasses the classic lines of the community grange building.
I made these last photographs on another morning as I meandered my way toward Vermont on my drive back home. I pulled to the side of the road, set up my tripod and made this photo. Beautiful blue skies can add ”punch” to a landscape photograph.
Finally this lovely unique Stone arch Bridge has an interesting history. See the description in this final photo. It makes me think of the old proverb, ”Slow down and smell the roses.” Perhaps we should add a new one, “ Stop to read the historic placards.”

Thanks for viewing my photos. I would greatly appreciate your input.
*As I write this, there are multiple of fires burning in the Smokies. I feel a great sadness for the losses happening there. The forest will recover, but it will be forever changed.
