Last week my husband wrote, rather philosophically, about the spaces we inhabit and our interaction with the landscape.This week I would like to take the opportunity to share some of the photos I took of autumn – literally “colour-in” the ideas of last week’s blog. Upstate New York is famous for its beautiful fall foliage, but nothing could’ve prepared us for the magical transformation of our little town from the green of a very humid summer to the spectacular array of colours we saw around us in the past few weeks. It is as if the landscape was resting from the heat and suddenly came alive with the turn of the season. Everywhere you looked, there it was – red, orange, yellow, purple, pink, sometimes all of it on one tree! We tried to enjoy as much of it as we could, taking long walks as well as a boat trip on Cayuga Lake. Here are some of the photos I took on campus:
Autumn is a lovely time of year. Not only because of the beautiful colours, but also because of the festive atmosphere around Halloween and Thanksgiving. It makes for a lovely transition period into the cold, long winter that lies ahead!
