Autumn Reflections Autumn Reflections The pond mirrored perfectly the fleeting beauty of a blue and gold autumn afternoon coming to a close. The same county park where I photographed the waterfall also has a pond, which I hadn’t known until recently, and of course I had to see it this autumn. The day was warmer than the last week, enabling short sleeves and light shoes with no socks, and a bit of barefoot walking, which I love. Sun streamed all day from a cloudless sky and every leaf in the woods was alight with its individual autumn hue. The trail to this feature wasn’t quite so friendly as the waterfall trail, and parts of it were pretty rough, but it was a beautiful walk through both thin and heavy woods, across open fields and up and down steep hills, then suddenly a pond at the bottom. I had hoped to reach there earlier in the afternoon and to be able to walk all around the pond to see all the different views, but misunderstood the trails at a juncture and went into a different part of the woods for a bit, then came back. Still, I’m glad I saw it at this time of day, as the stillness and quiet fell with the deeper shadows when the sun slipped behind the hill to the west. . . . . . . . Follow me on Instagram.
