A misty Quantock Hills, in colour. Shock! Horror!

Lovely. A lot less ominous than your gloomy monochromes.

Fabulous Bill. Did you add something to increase the "glow."

I added a 'Sunlight' filter in Color Efex to the far distance just to lighten and give it a more golden appearance, then reduced the saturation overall which brought that back to a more normal state. That will have introduced some 'glow', but not a lot and only in the centre background. Anything else is down to the mist and the sunlight starting to show through.

I can't read the sign, but the title suggests there's a story here.

There was a lake on Kalamazoo river, behind a dam. The company that operates the dam decided that it needs repairs and emptied the lake.  The problem was it did on its plan/schedule and sent downstream a lot of mud, wreaking havoc. Kalamazoo river being already polluted upstream from a diluted bitumen spill, which had the bad habit (as opposed to regular oil spills) to sink and stay on the bottom. After many cleanup projects it's still not safe to eat fish from there.

The second one's a classic, Armand. Good shooting.

Thank you Russ

Hosta la vista (a little gardeners' joke  ;) ) and a sweep of autumn colour.

Kejimkujik. In some areas of the park, the deciduous trees are done stripped of their leaves. In other areas, the remaining yellows and oranges are browning. There's still a good amount of colour in the bushes and undergrowth.

I hope this pandemic gets over soon so I can get back to Kejimkujik one more time.

+1. The province is hopeful for next summer, or next autumn at the latest. It all depends on what happens and when. Currently, Nova Scotia has just 6 active Covid cases (all from out-of-province travel), and no one hospitalized.

I like the composition. Scenes like this always make me smile because autumn is my favourite season. My wife and I are fortunate to have a couple of such beautiful trees around our house. One in particular is so vibrant as to be almost unbelievable. Even when it's overcast and rainy, I love opening the bedroom curtains to look out at this...

Early morning walk in town. It's really looking like November, now. The sailboats at the marina have all been pulled out and some are 'wrapped' already. The big grey hulk in the picture is an ex-Canadian navy dive support ship, the Cormorant. Decommissioned in 1997, it has had several owners, but has been abandoned at the Bridgewater NS dock for 20 years. In 2015, it partially sank a big problem since it contains an estimated 6500 litres of oil and 8500 litres of oil-contaminated water. The project to pump it out and tow it away for dismantling has been awarded, and work is finally starting. Cost to taxpayers $1.8 million CAD (but could go as high as $2.6 million.)
