Though today's sky was overcast and the odd drop of rain seemed to settle out of the clouds the trees responded in typical fall fashion. Damp and colourful, as soon as the sun comes out and the wind rises many will leave the trees behind them.
This set of pictures were taken in a short span of time this afternoon around 4:00 and appear in sequence as I drove toward the bridge on the old highway then came back into town and entered the Kinsmen park along the Doghide trail.
Fall and its colours is such a fleeting thing. It can appear to drag on for what seems like months or last merely a day or two as the leaves change colour and if the conditions dry those leaves out and the wind comes along they are gone and we have in its place the naked trees with their brown shadows and the foreboding dark green of the conifers.
Savour fall because it like life itself is not something that lasts very long and can have a time line of its very own.
