Last weekend Pinky and I went out for a walkabout, to take some fall foliage pictures. Well, she went to exercise... I went to take pictures. The first weekend in November is traditionally the best time to capture the trees at their peak color. This year it was a little shaky but we did OK. We went out to the Loch Raven Dam and Reservoir for our adventure.
(Late edit: The title is a tad misleading. I also like this Raven.)
The Loch Raven Dam. My goal is to find a way to get up on top of there with a Terrible Towel and have my picture taken while waving it. They have the access locked up, but I'll find a way, one day.
This is the view from along side the top of the dam.
Down at water level, you can see the difficulty we have in getting good foliage shots around here. The trees don't change uniformly. You can clearly see that some are in color, some are green, and some have already dropped their leaves.

The water's edge. "So that's where all the leaves are..."
There's always one that just won't cooperate.
