Outstanding fall landscape shots. Great colors in the foliage, in the water with reflections and in the sky. Well done.

Sometimes you just luck out, and everything is perfect.

Brilliant foliage really made almost flamboyant in the limpid flat water surface of the third image.
Angky.

For me, the third one was all about the reflections, and the overall shape of shore plus reflections.

Beautiful colors. I love water reflections, so I also loved the third one. We just don't get colors like that here.

This was a really good year in that all the trees turned at one, usually you get reds and oranges (maples), then yellows (opens, birches, and purples (oaks). Every four or five years they all happen at one. But you have to get out fast, when they are all over in a few days. Usually they are spread out over a week or two.

Very nice images Norm. I rarely visit Pentax Forum but always enjoy your posts. COVID still keeping me away from traveling - maybe next year.

A childhood friend from Columbus came up for 6 weeks this year to her family cottage. Things are looking up.

Stunning colors Norm! I could imagine me just sitting there and enjoying the view and the sound of the water flowing past me.

Then you have it more peaceful than I did. I was on the bridge, shown in the last image, with traffic and pedestrians, or on the dam, which is pretty loud. In that way, the images are better than being there.
