This is one of many seasonal photos I have taken over the years along the shore of my beloved Mississippi River in the Twin Cities. Autumn is arriving late this year, which is just fine with me since these glorious colors are so ironic when one considers what follows: frigid temperatures, snow and ice. I can wait!!
"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." George Eliot
