Autumn colours along Mersey River, October 2007

Autumn colours along Mersey River, October 2007

Well, since it’s Thanksgiving and the time of year when the colours are going full blast on the hillsides, I thought I’d post a somewhat postcard-like shot I took a couple of years ago around this time. This year may get rained out so it’s one from the archives.

When I printed this — on the last and now gone wet chemistry colour printer in Nova Scotia — and showed it to my instructor he said it was pedestrian, uninteresting and that I was capable of so much better. He was right of course, but how could I not have taken it. I mean, look at those colours! Yes, it’s very touristy and you couldn’t get more cliché if you tried, but so what. When you have lived for ten years in a part of the country that doesn’t get fall colours like these, well, you get a little excited when you do finally get them, criticism be damned.
