Feast for the Eyes - Autumn in Eastern Kansas

Can someone tell me where October went? I seem to have misplaced it.  In truth, I've been so busy appreciating and photographing our longest-lasting and most beautiful Autumn in years, that I have not sat down to create a blog entry! Each time I would have a chance to go out with my camera, the weather would be forecast to turn and I was sure that all the color would be gone in the next day or two.  The "next day or two" lasted almost six weeks!

I got a great deal on a large pumpkin this year, and though I don't consider myself a carving artist, I think this freehand g+ was pretty imaginative.  When I posted this, I told everyone that my Halloween wish was for the Great Pumpkin to bring Google Fiber to my neighborhood!  I'll let you know how that works out!
Maple and Ash Trees

I have been very fortunate to be able to capture digitally a lot of color that my eyes have seen this year - so I thought I'd try and put a few of the photos I took here, all together.  I hope you enjoy seeing these colors in photos as much as I enjoyed seeing the original!
