Late Fall


(click to enlarge)

The above photo was taken near Buckfield this past Sunday. Beautiful area. Even though most of the leaves are gone, the Oaks have added their russet hue to the landscape. It's still stunning. As the leaves have fallen, the woods have opened up again. No longer do they have a dark canopy that shrouds the hills... All of the sudden you can see deep in to the woods. It's once again, a different landscape.

Today I took the babe down to the Portland Head Light for a walk around... what a treat we were in for! The waves were incredible. Bigger than the hurricane waves that we encountered earlier this year. I didn't do any research, but I'd chalk it up to high tide combined with a full moon. If you want to see a visual example of how the moon phases affect us, just watch the tides.

It was around seventy degrees here in Iowa yesterday. I could not believe we were so lucky in November!
