Can any photographer resist the fall with its spectacular colors that we're treated to only once a year? I often wish that things looked like this all year long, although I suppose we would come to take them for granted.
This year's autumn came early to southern Wisconsin. Despite the summer's drought, the color was spectacular but unusually fleeting. The trees peaked quickly and because of work commitments, I didn't out and get as many pictures as I would've liked.
When time is short but I just have to get away from the computer for awhile, I go to Janesville's Rotary Gardens. Only a few minutes from home, it's like stepping into another world. Constantly changing, something different to see every time, it always delights and never gets old.
There is so much beauty all around us, one just has to stop and make time to see it. Sometimes it's big and obvious, right in front of your face. Sometimes you just have to look a little closer.
