The image of a flower bouquet kept entering my mind as I thought about this post. Something enjoyed only briefly and then gone. Perhaps it’s the realization that today images are everywhere and the best we can hope for is a fleeting appreciation before they pass into time. So no iconic Ansel Adams images here, just glimpses of autumn in Ohio. If the reader soon forgets the images but is left with a positive feeling or inspiration the carries them into the day with a smile, we will smile.
In no particular order, the photos were taken during the past week and are from a hike on a “new to us” trail along the western shore of Alum Creek Reservoir in Alum Creek State Park (AC), and also hikes in Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park (BD), Clear Creek Metro Park (CC) and Griggs Reservoir Park (GR), an easy to over look city park just mile a from our home. The fungi pictures are a reminder that even with most wildflowers gone until next year there is always something to discovery during a walk in the woods.
Walking a wooded path
with the colors of an autumn day,
the earthen scent of fallen leaves
touched by rain,
and the sound of a solitary woodpecker,
I awoke in the richness
of the moment.
Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks for many beautiful photos.
I must go out to see them.

Wow, you sure did see some interesting (and rare) fungi! I’ve seen the eyelash and bird’s nest fungi just twice in my lifetime. You got some great photos of them too. I love the one of the split gills.
It looks like you’ve had a great year for foliage as well.
I very much enjoyed your subtle palette of autumn colours and the white egg birds’ nest was well worth a closer look.
I thought you might enjoy the fungi. It was the first time either of us ever saw white egg bird’s nest fungi so we were pretty excited.
Glad you enjoyed the white egg bird’s nest fungi!
You sure do have beautiful fall scenes there!
Cool birds nest fungi, I’ve only seen in a field guide. Our fall up here was muted by rain and wind t/o Oct, nice to see some of Ohio’s beautiful scenes. Thanks!
Thanks Lou, you wouldn’t believe how small that fungi was.
With such a wide variety of subjects, and so many beautiful scenes, I can’t pick a favorite image from among these. You’ve had a fantastic fall from the looks of it!
Especially I love the beautiful autumn colours. Thanks.
