What's someone doing when they tie a pine cone around a branch like that? Just curious.

Beautiful carpet of red and gold. Nothing has started changing to any color around here yet. I can recall years of shooting "Fall" colors as late as Thanksgiving Day.

Mmm, maybe Folob tied it on there for the shot. I like this set.

I didn't put the pine cone there. In fact, there was a couple of them left and right around the trail.

Another one from the same walk:

I used only the 50-200SWD on the EM-1 with the MMF-3 adapter. Not the fastest lens in the world (even if not too too bad on the EM-1) ... but a fantastic one !

Hanging a pine cone from a tree branch is a way to mark a trail or location. If you looked around, you could probably see the next, and they'd lead you somewhere.

A rock on a tree stump or anything just out of place is usually a marker of some sort.

Beautiful shots but the 2nd is my favorite.

I use charcoal or a red rock to place marks in my hiking adventures so I think BB is right about his statement.
