My Drive Home

The colors are really starting to brighten here in northern Virginia.  I have to remind myself to watch the road when I'm driving home these days.  With the sun behind the leaves, some of them look like they've been dipped in gold.  I imagine what colors I would have to mix to paint the trees as if they are lit from within.  I'm going to try to get some good photos this weekend to show you all how beautiful it is right now.  I know this will all be gone in a few weeks, but right now I'm loving fall and wanting to spend all of it under the blue sky and the tapestry of gold and red.

I don't know if these pictures will do justice to what I'm talking about.  I took them with my cell phone on the drive home on the GW Parkway.  To top it off, I've seen bald eagles three times in a week, flying along the Potomac.  It's a magical place.

This last photo isn't on the drive home, but I love the autumn grasses.  They look almost ethereal, don't they?

And then look what I found!! 

You never know what you're going to find on the drive home.

It is a magical time isn't it? It's always something to savour and three bald eagles? My goodness, lucky you!
