Ushering in Autumn

This view is from the back deck of a client's house.  I took the pictures just two days ago.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  I couldn't believe her view from every window in the house.  Those mountains in the distance are the Berkshires, and that's the Tomhannock Reservoir down there.  Of course you must know that these pictures really don't do justice to it all.  I was wishing I had a wide angle lens so you could get a better feel for it.  


That last one is a hill in Vermont, which was very close to my client's house.  I had to keep driving, didn't I?  There was a little country store I had to stop at and grab some beeswax candles and a gift or two.  

On the 18th, we'll be headed up to Lake Placid for the weekend.  One of my clients has a gorgeous condo there, with a fantastic view of the lake, and Whiteface Mountain, and she has kindly offered it to me for the weekend.  I hope there is still some color left when we go up!  The last time Kathleen and I went, it was winter, and there was snow everywhere.  It was stunning.  This will be my first time up in the fall.  I'm really looking forward to a little mini-getaway.  BF will be in a bass fishing tournament that weekend on Lake George, so it'll be me, Kathleen, and one of her friends, and maybe BF will join us on Sunday after catching all the big fish.  :)

Gorgeous views, dear. Thanks for sharing them - I have no doubt you framed these exquisite vistas with equally wonderful window treatments...?

Amber said...

WOW, WOW and TRIPLE WOW! Gorgeous, Sharon! What a view. And I'm sure with your services, she has an equally gorgeous interior!

The Lake Placid gig sounds sweet!

Those views are definitely soul-stirringly beautiful. I imagine I'd spend my days leaning on windowframes, languidly drinking up those views. I really appreciate your sharing taking the time and thoughtfulness to take these and share.

Have a wonderful time on your trip, and I do hope there's still a lot of color so we can enjoy your pics, Sharon. Have to take some of Kathleen, too.

Thanks, guys! I haven't done the WT's yet, but I'm working on it! (And I thought I had a good view!)
