Beauty is Just Around the Corner

Today, I wanted to treat you to some pictures I've taken in the last several days in upstate New York.

Beauty is just around the corner.  All you need to do is look.  And, mid October treats us, not only to fall color, but to special sun angles that just seem to make everything glow.

Maybe it's just a tree in my neighborhood - but peek a boo, do you see the window?  (Hint, the lower right of the photo).
A sunrise near an abandoned factory building in the Westover neighborhood near Johnson City, New York. We have had some amazing sunrises in the past few days.
Outside the Ithaca, New York farmers market, as a tour boat leaves the dock on its way to a cruise around Cayuga Lake, one of the Finger Lakes.
And finally, roses still in bloom yesterday.  Many places have had their first frost, but many areas around Ithaca, thanks to Cayuga Lake, have been spared. 

Soon enough, though, the remainder of the green trees will start to turn color. And, before month's end, the last of the leaves will be falling.

The chill is already in the air.

Enjoy the beauty just around the corner.

  3. Simple photos but really beautiful. I love your take on seeing beautiful things in our everyday lives. Often we fail to see their beauty because we are used to it.

  10. Lovely photos. I, too, love the fall colours and taking photos with the different lightings at different times of day. Up here in Ontario, we're in full fall splendour with the leaves. Just love it and have to enjoy it while it lasts. Winter is not far behind. Enjoy your fall!

  12. How lovely. I appreciate sharing the views you see around you so far away from my home. Here, we have some wonderful sunrises at this time of year--usually a fleeting red. The leaves aren't so pretty--mostly brown. But then, I brown shades are some of my favorites.
