Caesar Pond's autumn color change

Neighbor Carla and I went for a short boat ride this afternoon to assess the state of the color change on the pond. The sky was deep blue under a super, sunny sky, and the leaves were lovely. We haven't even reached peak color yet.
Carla was as thrilled as I was to be out boating. It is so nice to have a friend who is as enthusiastic about nature as I am.
We saw some beautiful maple trees on the eastern shore as I put my new, wide angle lens to the test.
The winterberry bushes were in full fruit and were stunning at the water's edge.
I also love the contrast of light colored bark with colorful leaves. We have lots of birch, beech, and bleached out old maple bark to add interest and texture.
