First Fall Foliage Trip

So we went to VE Macy Park as we do every year to see how much the trees have turned, and the verdict is - not enough yet, and sadly unevenly as there are some trees already bare while other leaves seem to have gone from green to withered with no steps in between. I've yet to sort everything I've just put on iPhoto, but these short movies of the park's waterfall and brook (such as it is) went up on YouTube so I can show those to you at least:

I think the second one came out better than the first, it's longer and the picture is sharper (probably because I couldn't figure out how to rotate then save it as an .avi file and .mov files look crappier).

And here's the panorama Robin created from eight separate photos I snapped in quick succession from the bridge:

You can see the full-sized panorama here. We're going back next weekend, weather permitting, hoping to get a comparison shot.

Very nice! Here, the leaves have changed and are now beginning to come off as the storms blow through. I did capture some nice Autumn shots though when the weather was nice last weekend. It seems so fleeting here!
