The Colors of Autumn

I love the fall. I love the spring with it's vibrant greens and yellows. But most of all I love seeing the beautiful leaves of autumn.

These leaves have fallen to the ground so soon they will be gone and we will have to wait through a long winter before we can enjoy the new growth and colors of spring.

In August I drove down to Santa Rosa, California for my granddaughter's wedding. I decided to take a little side trip to Ferndale. This city contains dozens of well-preserved Victorian storefronts and homes. Ferndale is the northern gateway to California's Lost Coast and the city, which is sited on the edge of a wide plain near the mouth of the Eel River, is also located near the extensive preserves of Coast Redwood forests.

I drove around looking at the various Victorian buildings and decided this mansion was my favorite. It is now a Bed and Breakfast.

I am now a member of the Caveman Camera Club, serving as Vice President. We have a competition meeting the first Wednesday of the month and an educational meeting on the third Wednesday of the month from September through May each year. The competition is divided between assigned subjects and open subjects.

I enjoy the competition and endeavor to do my best there. Last evening this photo was judged in second place in the assigned category. The subject was patriotic. Here is my entry.
