Fall Fancies - We'll Always Have Yesterday

These photos of the gorgeous color in the Binghamton/Owego area of New York State should speak for themselves.  Sometimes, words only take away from a story.

That's one of the beautiful things about blogging - it is visual, and you have these posts to look at when the seasons have moved on and fall is a distant memory.

For a lot of the United States, fall is a distant memory, with ice and snow already settled in.  But, for us, we had a day yesterday of blue skies and temperatures near 60 F (15 C).  This kind of day almost never happens here in November.  I admired it from a chair in a dentist's office.

Fall color has lasted longer this fall than any fall I can remember in the nearly 30 years I've lived in upstate New York.  I took these pictures over the last several days.  Soon this will be a memory.
The glow comes partially from bright yellow trees, including this massive gingko tree in a historic neighborhood in Owego, New York.

Another gingko stands near the Susquehanna River in Owego.

And, last but not least, the glow of a fall sunset as seen through a maple tree on the West Side of Binghamton.

Today it rains.  And tomorrow, our colder weather starts.  It will be another season - the season of Letting Go.

More on that topic another time.

  1. Alana,
    I've been too busy with a sick son to take any pictures for the past week, but I'm glad to admire yours. It was a glittering, sparkling, colorful fall here in Nebraska. Now it's 15 degrees with ice and snow on the ground. *sigh* But what a blessing to have photos to cheer us!

  5. Nice photos Alana. I am beginning to realize more and more how much I love fall, at least on the clear days when the leaves are so much brighter and beautiful. ;) <3

  6. So beautiful--especially when you know everything is about to change. Never say die, but that's what it is. A death of sorts. Soon to spring to life with a whole new set of leaves.
