A Beautiful Fall Day

A Beautiful Fall Day

Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt. ~ William Allingham

Today was just a really wonderful day, the kind of day you hope to have when you’re on the road.  First, I was in Plattsburgh, NY a place I went to college.  The thing is when I toured SUNY Plattsburgh, the tour guide told me it was a really special place.  I rolled my eyes, it would be my third college and honestly a college was  a college was my  thought.  I was wrong.  My time at SUNY Plattsburgh would turn out to be three of  the best years of my life, I’ve held on to more lifelong friends from there than I have from anywhere else I’ve been.  Sure, I was lucky to be around good people, sure I was making better decisions in my life at that time, sure there were great staff and faculty at the institution but I maintain there is something really special about that college and I’m far from alone in that opinion.

So I started the morning having breakfast with a close friend from those days and one of the staff members that was really helpful to me while I was there.  It was great to catch up, the conversation was lively and deep, not just the silly chit chat you often get from folks.  I left to head for a cemetery near Montpelier, VT to do some photography.  It was a really crisp fall day, I love this time of year in the Northeast.  It was around 40 degrees, the kind of cold fall air that when you draw it in stings just a bit but the air tastes clean and clear.  It also helps that I was driving through multicolored landscapes, as if nature had decided to turn Monet loose and let him do his thing on a global scale.

I’ve been photographing the fall colors for the last week, I’ll have some cemetery posts coming out soon, but tonight, just a pile of fall color photos, enjoy and have a happy day my friends. ~ Rev Kane
