Autumn rocks

It's shaping up to be a nice colorful autumn here in northern Illinois. The usual routine is for the trees around here to go straight to brown, then lose their leaves. Thanks to an abundant amount of rainfall late in the summer courtesy of hurricanes Gustav and Ike, the trees are happy and are showing their appreciation with a display of golds, oranges and reds not often seen in these parts. Lots of photography fodder for a change. I like.

I'll be catching those golden hues, albeit in an indirect way. The large photo above is the first in a series of "Autumn rocks" images, that will feature ... well, rocks ... but with a touch of autumn thrown into the mix, like the gold heart-shaped leaf sitting atop the subject as Tyler Creek flows by.

I was out this morning catching some more rocks and fall color and will post those here in the days ahead. If you're the curious type and can't wait, head over to Flickr to get an advance peek.
