fall colors are at their peak in nw alabama...and i am loving it! here is a small sampling from my outing yesterday...
our summer has been very hot and dry and many of our smaller creeks and ponds have become hardened, caked beds...
this is flint creek...where water lilies flourished and enjoyed by many wading birds and wildlife....so sad. hopefully, it will refill by next spring.
fall bramble....edging a now dry inlet....but still scenic.
cattails along the inlet
bird viewing area at nearby wildlife refuge...sadly is dry, too. this beautiful spot hosts migratory storks and cranes as well as many species of ducks and geese. a favorite spot of many audubon fans.
the colors are so intense and brilliant, i gladly get out just to drink it all in.
