Finding Foliage

Yesterday morning was my once-a-month get-together with my friend Rhonda and after a lovely breakfast full of catching up and coffee, I figured I had just enough time before work to try to hunt down a little foliage in the area before Mother Nature decides to wash it all away in the predicted rains for this weekend (yet again). She hasn't exactly been playing nice this year what with the winter that never ended, the summer that never was, and a fall that seems more like that winter that never ended but there are still a few nice spots around for some patented New England fall color.

These two shots were both taken on the Versailles side of the Shetucket River just on the other side of the Occum Dam. The way I look at it, if you can manage to catch the reflection of the trees in the water then you get double the goodness with foliage!

I'll be working my usual double-shift today but am hoping to get a few more pictures on Friday when I've got a day off as it's not supposed to start raining until later in the evening - I hope!
