There is a harmony
In autumn, and a lustre in its sky,
Which through the summer is not heard or seen,
As if it could not be, as if it had not been!
- Percy Bysshe Shelley
The following photos are not all from the same day but they do represent one of the pre-snow autumn days up here. I hope you enjoy them.
The sun comes into view just above the horizon, across the bay. It looks like it's going to be a lovely day.
These frilly steps are growing on a less than healthy tree on the property.
Still, it has much colour, texture and beauty to offer.
A left turn at the end of the driveway takes us toward the public boat launch. This was taken along the way, sometime in October.
This little mushroom offers its cap as a resting place for some debris which fell with the season from the tree above it.
This canoe has seen better days. It's to our right near the end of the boat launch path.
Glancing across the bay, we find ourselves looking at beautiful Blueberry Island.
Autumn catkins catch my eye.
Dusk is falling on the lake - in shades of pink and mauve and blue. I can only imagine the view for those who face west.
Later in the night, the full moon offered a glimpse at a tree's bare branches. That was a treat but even more so, it delighted the eyes a bit earlier when it was just rising...
... and it did this.
Thanks for joining me on this (compilation of a) day. It's been a while since we've walked together. Let's not wait so long next time.
