"Among The Leaves"

As I sit by my desk typing this, looking out the window the rain is falling at a pretty good clip. This will be of great help in filling up some low spots in the streams. It will also speed up the leaf drop, something I will really miss. This year for some reason the foliage has been brilliant, and even wet as they are now they seem to still pop out and remain vibrant through the rain drops.

Yesterday was a spectacular October day, and after some necessary home duties I had a chance to go out and enjoy the afternoon among Autumns leaves.

A few shades of green mixed in with fallen hardwood covers.


Sparkling waters bring out the flames of fire.


Along the way a friend comes close to the leaves of fire. The name "Squaretail" is fitting.


A pause to allow all that is around to sink in.


These Autumn days are numbered, and I'm happy to have spent this one in such fashion, "Among the Leaves".

      Other than the streams on the Cape the only other one I fish in MA. is Hubbard Brk. in Granville State Forest.

    3. Thanks Alan.

      I have never heard of Granville but that isn't to surprising since it is out in the Berkshires.

      I hope to get there some day.
