Autumn at Highbanks series

This weekend the weather is cold, windy, rainy and very gloomy. That's a huge contrast to last weekend when the weather was in the 70s and absolutely perfect for showing off the last of the fall colors. Whenever possible, Steve and I walk the trails at Highbanks Metro park - usually covering about 4 or 5 miles of the 12 or so miles of trails there.

During this time of year I really enjoy capturing the beauty of the colorful autumn canopy against a blue sky. This is one of the many beech trees, which are among the last of the forest trees to exhibit a riot of color. When most of the maples have already dropped a significant proportion of their autumn leaves, the beeches are just coming into prime.
