Fall colors

Taking a break from thinking and writing about the sale of the TMNT property, I thought I'd share this image from a bicycle ride I took with friends yesterday. It was a gorgeous, color-drenched sunny New England autumn day, about as perfect weather-wise as one could hope for.

There were a lot of trees exhibiting spectacular color, but I was particularly taken with this large one in Look Park. As usual, a mere photograph does not do justice to the glorious, almost incandescent glow of a specimen like this in the bright sunlight.



By the way, to answer one of the questions recently posed in the comments sections of my last two posts -- yes, I intend to continue doing this blog. -- PL

Something about the Fall in New England... lazy weekends reading comics and watching TV with the windows cracked ever so slightly open, the rustling of leaves in the background. Yet, somehow I always found myself the most productive in the Fall... despite having to rake the leaves more often! Enjoy Pete!

Fantastic news about the blog.

The weather was amazing yesterday earlier in the day (once late afternoon hit we got a fair amount of rain in Western NY).

The one thing I am sad about this year is I haven't seen much red in the fall foliage. It's been very golden.

Autumn has always been my favorite time of the year. I'm really enjoying the weather and the foliage in New Jersey right now. Love the sound of the wind rustling the dried leaves. I only wished that it lasted longer.

And I agree with agliarept, it is great thinking weather :)

Well first...thanks for continuing the blog, I would be so bummed if it went away. I have high expectations that we'll be seeing some "blast from the present" on here soon! I want you to make good on carrying around that sketchbook. You are a very talented illustrator and I can't wait to see your post TMNT offerings!

Secondly, it's photos like this one that make living in Florida so lousy sometimes. I really wish we had a change of seasons here it's so beautiful to get to witness that in person. Looking forward to the prospect of an out of state job presenting itself someday soon.

Aw, that's purdy. I'll never regret moving to the west coast, but the fall foliage is something I sure miss. I never appreciated it as a kid in upstate NY, but as an adult, it's a lovely.
