During our fall colors peeping trip to New England, which included Acadia National Park, we arrived just in time as the leaves are at the peak as they turn yellow gold and red. We were stopping near a pond to look at some of the beaver building thier home for the winter, you can see a couple of the piles of wood are the beaver's home. The pond was relatively calm allow for some pretty good reflection of the fall color as well. The light was okay with overcast and gray sky. As we walked around the shore, we saw a couple of the trees were very well gnawed by the beavers, a few more days the trees may have fallen down, see CI.
I really like the CI showing the beavers work, I have never seen beavers in the wild even though there is an area close to here where they have successfully reintroduced beavers into the forest.
The main and especially the LV are simply gorgeous depicting fall at its best.
Beautiful and fascinating pictures!!! The beaver's lodge is a wonderful detail here. All this splendour meanwhile surely has disappeared and grey and brownish tones will reign the scenery. Good that photography helps us to "conserve" days and sights like this! Nature as an artist isn't to surpass ...
Greetings from grey, rainy and dark Germany!
All three images are stunning (not sure how you got away with such a big CI! 😊) The colours are amazing. So much more varied and vibrant than what we have here. Probably it is too windy here and the frosts this year are late, so even well into November some trees still have green leaves this year.
Beavers are so clever and hardworking. Amazing to see the tree in the CI.
This is a beautiful Autumn photo. I love the colors and the reflections. I looked at the CI before I read your note and said to myself, "Those had better be beavers, otherwise I will be mad at the people who did this to the trees." I think we see in the main entry homes of two possible culprit families. The panoramic view is scrumptious! That one is my favorite!
This is to fill my eyes! How beautiful in these trees and their reflections. The result was magnificent and would give a beautiful picture on the wall. Very interesting also the work of the beavers. Surely that tree should already be on the ground (haha ..)
Not a bad place for a beaver home :-) Wow, the tree looks massively damaged, quite impressive to see this. Someone must be building a home, haha. What a wonderful fall image with just the right amount of up and down, reflection and the real. The colors are vibrant and yet they contain something melancholic. With the next wind blow, they're starting to fall. Some of the trees are still deeply green while others are not far from falling off. Nothing better than grey skies, I personally find it works best for this kind of image.
W.Lim (2017/11/14 20:14:09): That's why timing is so important when you want to see the fall colors at it's best. but I think a little early or late is not a big deal, you have more green earlier and less leaves a little later. But it is hard to plan when you have to make reservation 6 month in advance.
