The light this year has been tinged with farm induced harvesting debris, and that diffuses light in a weird, ethereal way that gives everything a strange glow. It's kind of neat to see but it wreaks havoc with a lot of folks breathing here. Sunsets have been rather spectacular as well due to this phenomenon.
I generally take time in mid-October to do my traditional Fall Colors ride in the Green Belt. I've been doing this for years, and every year is different, of course, but it still is amazing to get out and really take the time to look things over out there. Although this year doesn't rank up there with the best, and maybe I'm a week early, there still were some nice views. Here are some I wanted to share here. They come from my Dirt Home From Work ride Friday and my Fall Colors Ride Saturday. Hope that you enjoy them!

|These cement beams have been here a long time!|
|Paddlers on the Black Hawk Creek|
|The meadow view: I'm a little early this year and the colors are muted due to our weather.|
|Mid-October and we still have some flowers. I'll take it!|

|The diffused light in the sky and the contrasts were tough to shoot in. This one came out okay though.|
|There still is a lot of green out there yet!|
