Fall has arrived in northern Virginia. The air is chilly - a bit lower than seasonal norms, actually - and the leaves are changing colors and falling. Fall is weird in more southerly climates. Different sets of trees change colors at different times, so it's hard to see grand vistas of riotous color. Moreover, the colors in New England and Ontario are incredibly vibrant compared to what we see in these parts. One has to go high up into Blue Ridge Mountains to see colors that compare with those in the north. Nevertheless, determined to get some photographic record of the fall of 2006, I took my camera to the park on my breaks today. The best photos I got, by far, were of the reflections in the water. These are a few of them. As you can see, it was quite windy out and my hands got pretty cold. Still, I think the results were worth the minimal discomfort. Enjoy!
