Fall Colors Along the Walk Trail

Yesterday was a perfect weather day her in NY. It was 70 degrees, cool and breezy. Hubby and I headed out after breakfast to the walk trail with our pug in tow. It is just across the street from our house. I took the camera along. I was able to get some great shots of the foliage. Not sure if the colors have peaked here yet but they sure look close to it! I love the colors of the leaves reflecting in the water in the above shot.

Loving the orange and yellows!

More pretty reflections in the water!

My hubby took this one!

I may even try to paint one of photos with the water reflections if I have a brave moment! Water reflections are not easy with acrylic. Of course I can always leave that aspect out. Hmmmm.....not sure yet what I will do!

Oh, and today Art, Heart, and Healing a free course on willowing.ning starts! I am excited as I have never taken a class with Tam. Hope to see you there!


  1. What beautiful fall photos! I bet you could do a bang-up job painting any of them! I am originally from Ontario, along the St. Lawrence, and have moved to Colorado- the colours here are lovely too, but I do miss the eastern colours of autumn, so thank you for sharing!

  2. Wonderful pics Cathy! I love the colors of fall too♥
    See you at Tam's. You will love it! She's amazing and so generous with her talent, support and love! We'll have FUN!! :)

  3. Oh! What beautiful shots!! I especially like the 2nd shot, with all of the color on the trees, and the shot your hubby took, with the stones in front and the water just beyond. So nice and peaceful looking...I'll be looking for your painting of either of them! :-)

  4. Amazing photographs, Cathy! The fall colors are so gorgeous & something I don't get to see much of in California! Have a great week!
    Hugs, Diane

  8. Just gorgeous, I miss the colored leaves. we do have some here but not like that around here, mostly evergreen. You should paint one of these scenes.

  9. Great photos Cathy. The fallen leaves are just awesome. I'm sure you'll be able to paint one of these photos. Have a great week.

  10. Us Brits forget that NY is a state as well as a city - so thanks for the reminder. It's a beautiful one too by the looks of these photos :)

  11. Oooh, I love Fall--don't you wish it could stay this way until Spring? I am loving Tam's (willowing's) style of teaching!!
