Riot of Color


In her amazing historical fiction novels set on gorgeous St. Simons Island, author Eugenia Price often describes the fall foliage as a "riot of color." During a peaceful morning walk through the UK Arboretum woods, I knew exactly what she meant! Vivid golden yellows, oranges and reds dotted the landscape and created a vibrant autumn scene.


 I couldn't help lining this shot up to give this guy a fall makeover with a fiery wig. ;) 





Pumpkin Mania


We visited Pumpkin Mania for the first time at Transylvania University and really enjoyed looking through all of the designs. More than 250 carved pumpkins were displayed. The jack-o'-lanterns were carved by faculty, staff, students, and members of the community.



 This is the view of Gratz Park all decked out in fall color. It is located across the street from the steps of Old Morrison where Pumpkin Mania was held.

Fall Exploring

 

My journey on this day took me to the Lexington Cemetery, but it unexpectedly started raining not long after I arrived. I was caught in a sudden downpour beneath a tree and was thankful for my weather-sealed camera body. :) I ended up driving out Old Frankfort Pike instead. It was a beautiful drive as always. 

I didn't notice Henry Clay's visitor until I was looking through images. I would love to have his "bird's eye view!" 


This is the Sunken Garden at the Lexington Cemetery.

Before and After


I shot this same tree during one of our bad ice storms. I was happy to see it had not only survived, but did not receive the extensive damage many trees did. I love shooting the same location during different seasons and comparing them.
