Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 106: Autumn

Autumn is Ohio’s best season: the colors, the weather, the events!  Even a car ride is a joy, but I really love visiting state parks at this time.  Here are some views from Mohican State Park near the northeast part of the state.

I love identifying leaves in the fall (the tree in the featured image is a sassafras, which have some of the most beautiful colors).  Here are some posts to get you started with some basic leaf IDs:

How to Recognise Different Types of Trees From Quite a Short Way Away (Fall leaf ID part 2)

Another fun feature of Ohio is that you never know whether it might rain or even snow on Halloween. Plan your costumes accordingly! 🤣

Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites

All of my Weekly Photo Challenge images right now come from a trip to Ireland I took in 2015, but I did several “Wordless Wednesday” posts this year to showcase my current photos.  Here are some of my favorites, all from right here in Ohio.  These were all great trips I took with my family over the year.
