A Beautiful Fall Day

As promised yesterday, I went down to my spiritual home today. It's been a beautiful day - cool (but not as cool as yesterday), dry, sunny with a slight skim of clouds overhead (we're getting rained on tomorrow), and a nice breeze. Gooseneck Cove showed its autumnal best in these conditions.

Ballard Park is a different story, though. The Fall Asters are starting to fade, but the leaf colors aren't coming in to take their place quite yet. I guess that's another effect to chalk up to this year's weird weather. Still, all was not lost; I climbed the path to the top of the Quarry rim and got this shot looking toward the ocean, overlooking the Gooseneck Cove watershed. Nice view, huh?

  1. Gorgeous! I need to get out on take some pics of our colorful trees soon. I think next week we'll peak with the beauty!

    I've been enjoying the youtube clip for Lil' Darlin' that you left on Fox's blog...thanks...nice and mellow. :)

  2. ...beautiful photos (wish that house were mine)! We are still mostly green in Cincy also, but yesterday a few reds started popping up in the maples. Probably half of our leaves are already down...brown and dead from the drought. Those that remain will no doubt amaze in a week or so.
