Every Leaf…

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

So, there was one day out of the week that I was back in the midwest where the sky was blue and it was a very pretty blue with fluffy white clouds. We don’t get the fluffy white clouds all that often in AZ so it was a lovely sight.

Last Sunday, on this sunny day, my mom and I took a short drive to a beautiful Indiana state park, Potato Creek. I don’t know if all of their state parks are as well-maintained as this one but this one was gorgeous.

This park has a nice lake, Worster Lake, surrounded by deep woods. As beautiful as it was, I can only imagine how pretty it will be in another week or so.

Look at these trails!

You can see a glimpse of the lake over to the right of the woods on this one.

And look at these graceful trees~I have no idea what they are.

Here’s a peek at the lake.

And, okay, this following photo is blurry. I came across an area where there were quite a few dragonflies~something I never see in Arizona~but they would not light on anything and I couldn’t get them in focus. However, I like the pic anyway. Can you see the elusive dragonfly?

This trip makes me really want to see a riot of autumn colors and I hope we’ll be able to head up to northern Arizona in a couple weeks to see what it has to offer. Hard to believe it’s October now…

  5. Gorgeous fluffy white clouds, Candace!! I love the inviting look of those paths too. Great photography, makes me feel as though I were there!

  6. Like my friend Tabbie, I find Autumn to be beautiful but depressing. I choose to enjoy the beauty, but I’m not quite sure which one is winning the battle within.

    Flying creatures drive me insane. Try as I may, rarely do I capture them with my lens. I’m learning as I go.
