Around Town on a Crisp Fall Morning

A single day off again, so I've been spending my day running errands, and the following shots were taken while running said errands. It's been very chilly and a bit blustery lately; the highs yesterday and today never got out of the 40s (4º - 9º C). And yet there's still not a lot of Fall color here in town. Up in the mountains there's certainly color, but here in town only the occasional Maple blazes out, like the one in the gazebo park across the street from me, and some Dogwoods have turned a bronze color. But others are being slow to catch up; even the usually fluorescent yellow Ginkos are still green. And the wind is stripping the trees that have turned. In any case, here are some shots that catch what Fall color there is in town.

    1. Yeah, I believe I'll try going back to unmoderated commenting, but if I start getting inundated by the spambots again I'm gonna have to go back to this.
