I’m at my “go to” place today. Good old Claireville. Close enough to visit when I’m feeling lazy on the travelling bit. Today the wind was a little on the crazy side.
I huddled under this tree for awhile (mostly to take a photo) but also to help cut the wind a little.
I loved the composition of this one. It tells me a story of the lonely picnic table waiting for someone to come and sit on it under the shade of the tree. Or possibly the branch is a smile and the tree is an eye and the picnic table is a winking eye. lol
After my first successful trip to Cameron Lake in September I decided to drag Nigel to the trail and see what we could find. It started out as a foggy day but it made the forest ore atmospheric. We only hoped that the rain would hold off.
The mushrooms that I had seen back in September had mostly died to be replaced with new types to photograph.
We didn’t luck out as we had hoped with the rain and we got caught just over halfway through the trail. It didn’t last long and luckily we were prepared with rain gear. The good thing we were going back to the B&B and hitting their hot tub to warm up. ?
A short walk through Claireville during this time of year is much different than most other days. The park has many vibrantly coloured trees and if you get there on time the display is amazing. I’m visiting more towards the end of the season but there is still lots of colour to see.
An Orange Picnic
The spectacular orange-red of the maples is stunning. Below is a close up of the leaves. It looks like they may have one more colour to show before the end of the season.
There are many types of trees in the park and many colours to capture.
