Autumn…Rain muted

A day truly does make a difference. Here in northeast Ohio we have been blessed with a succession of delightful days that drew this nature-loving photographer outdoors to walk the trails, ignoring anything indoors that may be calling for my attention. Dusting, vacuuming, reading, and more have received scant attention during these glorious autumn days as I answered the clarion call to “Come outdoors and enjoy autumn at its finest.” However, today was different! I woke very early to the sound of wind and rain, which hasn’t abated over the last 14 hours. It was the beginning of a very different day!

Despite the inclement weather, I pulled my winter jacket and hat out of the closet and headed to Chagrin River Park late this afternoon to see what effect the sudden changes would have on my October images.  I didn’t get far before the rain began to fall with enough force to send me indoors, but here are three images from today’s short trail walk . Although they are muted by the wind and falling rain, I’m happy to include them in my “Color Me Autumn” collection.

So there you have it, fellow trail walkers. Muted rather than vibrant, they are still beautiful, wouldn’t you say?

Thanks for joining me on the trail today.
