Fall is gone and winter is here but I still like the remnants of fall that linger when I look at various images taken this season. Not all of the days out were warm and such. One thing photographs don’t always impart is the cool or cold day when it was taken.

The Lewis and Clark Park has some nicely cut walking trails beyond the area where RV camping is permitted. Nothing strenuous and pleasant to just enjoy the quiet and maybe catch glimpses of song birds flitting about in the brush and an open meadow. The park also sports a couple of small cornfields planted to feed the deer who pass through or inhabit the area. And in a good year, the color of the trees make a day outing breathtaking. Although this was not one of those years. Still, any day out taking photographs is always a good day. Something I like to remind students who take a couple classes I teach about photography at a local community college. I could think of worse ways to spend the day, and probably have spent days, and the fresh air and exercise is always a welcomed activity.
