Folks in this part of the country are getting themselves prepped to weather another Snowbelt winter, as the signs of its impending arrival appear at every turn. The chill and dampness shroud day and night. There is a barrenness to the landscape that didn't exist even a week ago. Trees bereft of their colourful foliage are stark skeletons cast against an often grey sky. The oranges, crimsons and yellows of autumn leaves have been raked into moldering mounds, providing protection for gardens and beds where once glorious blooms have withered away.
But today was one of those mid- autumn blessings, balmy temperatures to cheer us and sunshine bringing the landscape back to life. Its brightness sparkled on the morning dew lying fresh and clean on grass and sodden leaves.
So, as we think ahead to what's to come, this was a wonderful reminder that each season has it splendour. We offer these collections of landscape photos as proof:
