Default A stunningly beautiful Autumn weekend

Sorry for my extended absence on this forum. I have been absurdly busy, and I'm sorry to say I have had almost no time for photography even though this has been one of the best New England foliage seasons in recent memory. Last weekend we did finally get out to our family cottage on the lake in Maine. Had a very nice weekend; my only regret was that we had to leave on Sunday evening. Here's one photo, taken late Saturday afternoon, just before the sun slipped behind the ridge. I hope others have had more time to enjoy the glorious season that is upon us.

Yes, the fall colors have been excellent this year. Unfortunately for me, I have only gotten to see them through the windshield. My one attempt to use the camera as a dashcam resulted in too many reflections (and bug collisions) to get anything useful. Well, maybe next year?
I love that shot, by the way. Well done.

Love the reflection. There is a great sense of balance and symmetry with the treetops and their reflections acting as leading lines. I like it.

The test of a good mirror shot is to flip it upside down, and this I a great shot
