It has been a beautiful week of fall weather, 60′s most of the week and near 70 today. I managed to get out to the park on Sunday. Most of the fall leaves are now on the ground however, I did manage to find some fall colors on the trees yet. This is a view from the pier at Linwood Lake. The yellows seem to be what is left on the trees at this time. The reds and oranges seem to have started off our fall and are on the ground. The yellows are very pretty yet though.
The skies were a perfect blue with the big, puffy white clouds. Just a perfect day to be out with a camera and enjoy.
The trails were gorgeous with the leaf cover on the bottom and the color left in the trees. I could have stayed out there all day.
This particular park had these majestic oak trees, I love the oak tree. They just towered above me to the skies. Still some pretty good color on the oaks yet as well.
These were taken standing right against the bottom of the tree trunk with a wide angle lens, it really gives the perspective of how majestic and tall these mighty oaks stood.
They lined the road the whole way into the park. This road was of the finest, silkiest sand I have ever touched. It pulled the car in and was difficult to drive in, almost like driving on an icy road. Was very pretty and good for walking though.
I really liked how the sunlight came through the trees onto the leaves below.
I headed on down to the lake where the skies were amazing. This is a rock path that led out into the lake a ways.
Along the rocky path I found these birds, I am not sure yet what they are. They were in large flocks and stayed right along the waters edge. They had the most vivid white belly when they took to flight.
I was able to get fairly close to them if I moved slowly.
I will have to do some more research and figure out exactly what they are. They are larger than an average sparrow but not quite as large as a robin. Very pretty little birds.
The flowers were done on the water lilies but there were still all these lily pads along the shores of the lake.
They were starting to turn yellow with the fall weather as well.
Just a few shots I took of the dock and the landing area for the boats. The skies were so perfect that day I had to capture them from different areas.
I only explored one of the many trails that this park seems to have. I am looking forward to more trips to explore the other trails and see what else there is to discover. It looks like the trails join up with other parks through other cities and I should have plenty of exploring ahead of me. This is just a small portion of the photos I took on my trip Sunday.
