Manic Monday - Colorful

Foliage and Nightshots

The first Manic Monday word for November is 'colorful' so I thought - well, why not take a few of my remaining foliage shots from the local area, make a nice collage, and use it for today's post? Obviously, that's exactly what I did! Unfortunately, this year's foliage was a little on the 'odd' side as far as the timing of each tree's color change went and nothing seemed to be changing at the same time but we still did have some lovely autumn colors even if it was patchy at times.

All of these pictures were taken from the Mohegan Sun side of the Thames River (on my way into work last Monday) except for the colorful rock cropping at the top; I took that picture from the parking garage right outside of where I work at the Tribe. I think for a bigger view you can click on the collage and it will take you to a larger size but this is the first time I've used this format and I could be wrong, though I hope not!

I hope everyone has a very colorful Monday no matter what you're up to; be sure to stop by Mo's Manic Monday Meme for more colorful choices!

    Have a great Monday.

  4. I was going to say the same thing that Bee said. It looks like a post card. My favorite is the rock photo on the top. Nicely done. It's beautifully colorful.

  19. Those are very pretty pictures. Almost all of our leaves seem to be down already. I guess I ought to rake.

  23. Ah, the water looks wonderful! And if there is one thing I miss about living up north, it's the colors of fall. Maybe I will visit in the fall next year.
