Default Maine foliage

The pictures are taken of and from Pleasant Mt. in Bridgeton, ME. The ski slope is called Shawnee Peak. Elevation is 2100 ft. The pond in the picture is Moose Pond.

Had I not sprained my ankle three weeks ago, I would have climbed to the top to give you a view of the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

The pictures were with the K-7 and Tamron 18-250. All are JPG (forgot to hit the raw button). Pictures taken one day apart.

Really nice, Lou.
Sorry to hear about your ankle. I'd offer you a nice pair of crutches but, I used them to make a shoulder mount...

Rodney, Mole and GW; Thanks for your nice comments and concern for my ankle. The ankle is nicely healed for everything but coming down the Mt. Going up....no pain no strain.

Pleasant Mt. is several miles long and there are 4 hiking trails as well as going up the face of the ski trails. Views from the top are wonderful. You can see all the way to the Atlantic Ocean in Portland from the top of an old fire tower at the summit, to the Presidential range of the White Mountains in NH.

Well, aside from the hitch in your gitalong, you seem to have had a successful day. I have had my share of sprained ankles in my youth, but we are not as young as we used to be, so I know you will get over it eventually as long as you don't stress it too soon - take care.

Lovely, Lou. I like the one of Moose Pond.

We went up north Sunday, but not as far as the White Mountains, although I could see them in the distance. A friend who was up there this weekend told me she had snow.

Sarah, Penolta and Patty;

Glad you all enjoyed the colors that Mother Nature presents us each fall.

Patty, we went up Friday evening and it rained quite hard and the wind was gusting strong. Sunday we went to the Fryeberg Fair. Monday spent the day taking the boat out of the lake and trailered it back to MA for Winterizing.

Fantastic pics Lou. I'm glad you had a chance to get out and enjoy nature's annual spectacular show. We've had lovely foliage here in Vermont as well; unfortunately I've been too busy to take any photos. Hope the ankle gets better soon.
