We are having such a gorgeous Autumn in the Maritimes this year. I call my home Moncton, New Brunswick and where I have worn myself out getting photographs of Autumn colours to look at through those cold days and nights of the on coming winter as well as to share with friends online.
The photo on the left was taken in Irishtown Nature park just outside of Moncton on Elmwood Drive. So glad I made it here for Autumn this year.
This is the brook that flows from the Irishtown Road reservoir spillway. Right now the water levels are low so I could have walked across on the rocks that are showing… but I didn’t because I would most likely have landed on my behind in the water.
Last year I was too early to catch the Autumn colours and then I was too late… so very very frustrating. So happy I was able to get here a couple of times this Autumn… even got there while the wind was almost nil. So pleased with that fact.
This is the spot where a big heron flew out of the trees behind me. Because I had no idea a bird this size could hangout in trees I thought I was going to have to change my pants.
I didn’t even get a good photo of the heron as I was trying to bring my heart rate back down again.
