the fall of life

Autumn is arguably the best season in Newfoundland. Temperatures are certainly not too hot, and yet not cold enough to freeze your knuckles of. But it's that time of year when we are reminded that we live between 46½° and 52°N latitude in the Atlantic. This place is beautiful in the fall, on land and sea.
Ironically as life is zapped from trees and vegetation, the dying process produces one of the most colorful times of year, which makes for a pleasant transition from fall to winter. Here are few shots I took recently.
