NOVEMBER AND 65 DEGREES

It has been a beautiful, moderate, pleasant weekend for November.  Yesterday I set out for some favorite fall stops.  How far does one have to go for some fall color?  I mean, I went all the way to Acadia to see some but as Dorothy said, “There’s no place like home.”  Here’s that Japanese Maple in my back yard.

Also available in a nice place mat.

 

I think I’ve OD’d on twilights, sunsets/rises, flowing streams, waterfalls, and waves.  So, as they used to say on Monty Python, “Now for something completely different.”

Then I drove out through Valley Forge which was just perfect.  It was good to see families out enjoying it all.

Then I ran into a friend from last winter.

Whitetail Deer

Here’s the shot I took of her last winter.  You may not see her again as they’re going to thin the 1000-strong flock down to about 200 this winter.  It saddens me but I gather it’s necessary for the good of the park.

Here’s a late fall scene on a ridge overlooking the valley.

Then, just driving around Chester County I came across this Big Leaf Maple (I think) so bright in the afternoon sun that I turned around to go back and photograph it.  Lovely.
