Default Late Autumn Stroll

Well the peak of autumn foliage has come to the lower elevations. Have not had a lot of time for photography these past few days - busy with school groups and a number of park projects. But here are a few scenes from autumn in the low country.
First some views of the ripe hills reflected in our TVA lake. (Which orientation do you prefer?)

Ripples in the lake make for some interesting patterns in the autumn reflections.

MANY people are coming to visit, to enjoy the fine autumn weather and the bright views of the ripe hills. A few use some unusual vehicles!

GW's series of barns inspired me to photo a few. Autumn seems to bring out their character too.

Out on the trails, the leaves are already coming down, making for some slippery travelling.

Both the tallest and the shortest are fading...

(a friend told me about the "orton effect," which I tried on the 2nd fern photo. Not sure if I like it or not - what do you think?)

Of course, all the "critters" are very busy with their autumnal preparations. This chipmunk sure found a fine hickory nut!

Mole-

I love the balloon shot. The contrast of colors is excellent.

Have a great day.
