Wednesday morning, after many, many days of dark, gloomy skies and rain, the sun finally came out. I knew it wouldn’t last long so I grabbed my camera, jumped in the car and drove away, leaving responsibility and all those pesky should-do things behind.
I first went to Buffalo Park in Mill Creek, which I found on Google Maps. Although I wasn’t expecting much since I knew the park had to be near a bunch of new condos, I was still disappointed. The “park” is no more than a small grassy area with a playground for the condo residents. I didn’t even get out of my car.
I didn’t have long before lunchtime so I drove to Willis Tucker Park, which is the closest park to my house but is a place I’ve always found lacking in photo opportunities. From riding my bike up there one day last week, I knew that the maple and oak trees were turning so I thought I could take photos of those if I couldn’t find any other color.
To my surprise, I found lots of color. There were so many colorful leaves that some of the photos turned out rather eye assaultingly bright. Click on any image to see a larger version but be warned; the backgrounds are quite busy and bright. For some reason, my lens wasn’t blurring well that day. Still, I was happy to find so much color in November!
