Fall Color Impressions

Today was a road day leaving, Ellis Hollow, New York at 12:00 pm after a casual morning of packing and loading cars. The house we stayed in was a converted church dating back to 1896, Ellis Hollow Episcopal Church. A memorial stone inside the building named the church after a young girl who died at the age of 8; Carrie R. Smith. The record of her passing is in the Ellis Hollow cemetery information. The house/church is on the National Historic Registry and can be seen here on u-tube.  It was a very nice place! Thanks Jeannie for making the arrangements. I took the stained glass window shot right before we left with the Lensbaby. After packing out we headed to Taughannock Falls, but it was very crowed, the light was just too harsh and it was getting late, so we decided to get some lunch and head home. I took off for Rt 15 south and enjoyed a casual drive along Seneca Lake before getting out of the Finger Lakes Region; stopping only for gas, until I hit Pennsylvania, where I saw the most incredible stand of fall color off the side of highway. So I decided to see if I could get there and got off the next exit. I saw a sign for Blossom Mountain and as I drove down the road, saw another sign that said Tioga State Forest. I made some color swipes and multiple exposures there.

The image below, I made yesterday in New York's Chestnut Hill Wildlife Management area by the beaver pond. This is a reflection shot turned upside down. It was a great trip but too short!
