Colorful Converse Road - Part 1

Most of the brilliant red leaves had already fallen and some trees were bare. We'd had a hard freeze the previous night and I was on my way home from the hardware store when I passed Converse Road. My camera was in my pocket and it was a lovely autumn day. Thinking this might be my last chance to photograph some wondrous fall color, I turned onto Converse Road:

I photograph the autumn color along Converse Road every year and didn't want to miss out this year. I wasn't disappointed. The dairy farmer who owns this woodland sometimes puts calves in it:

I passed the lovely Fort Jackson town park:

And an unused red barn beside an even brighter red tree:

Most of the red leaves had fallen, leaving only yellow and gold, but there were still a few trees of exceptional redness:

I passed a dried, brown cornfield, backed up by colorful autumn trees:

And a small flock of sheep which was almost hidden behind the trees:

Deep woodlands which seemed to glow with yellow and green:

Converse Road is lovely at any time of year, but beyond beautiful in the autumn:

Like leaves on fire:

Muted yellows, greens and golds:

A colorful tunnel of trees, beckoning the traveler to explore just a little farther, just a little bit farther. And so I did, which means there will be a Part 2, posted tomorrow:
