  1. All the pictures are lovely,but my favourite is the last one of the sunrise.

  2. This shows the lake effect this time of year. Our Honey Locusts have already turned golden and then lost their leaves. So, even though you're north of me, your autumn must be a little milder. On the other side, springtime happens faster here. Interesting.
