I love the fall. The leaves, the colors, the smells. Even the RAIN. This year we had a very late fall because it was so warm and dry. Finally last week we got a couple of days of colder nights and some rain. And finally the leaves gave off their glorious colors.
The curve in the road seems to add interest, but my favorite photo of these three is the one with the almost straight road. It was taken on Ravenna street headed East into Streetsboro and Franklin Township (Kent) just over the Hudson line past Stone Road.
I love how the black trunks of the trees stand out so clearly against the yellow leaves when they're wet from the rain. And even the wet road kinda glistens because of the water.
I had an opportunity to drive from Hudson to Kent and then up to Streetsboro on the backroads. What a wonderful way to experience the colors -- even on a rainy day.
My tires were a little slippery on the way, so I had them rotated over the weekend. As they say "wet leaves = ice" But I still love the color.
This last photo is from the Hudson green outside my office. I love how just a touch of sunlight was peaking thru the clouds to light the gazebo. And don't you just love the red tree behind the gazebo?!
