|This past October. we returned to the Riverside Cemetery in Waterbury with hopes of seeing the statuary complemented by gorgeous fall colors. Yang and I were not disappointed!
The entrance was serene and gracious, with background colors hinting at the beauty we would find beyond.
The highlight that these fall colors brought t o the monuments was deliciously melancholy. The leaves behind this woman leaning on a cross brought forth the saffron beauty of autumn.
Then there was the flame of orange encompassing this melancholy dame, flaring against the shadows of a of grey autumn day.
Or there was this lone, proud figure fronting a brilliant crimson of oak trees.
I loved this shot from behind of the woman gazing out over the rolling hills of autumn glory.
I think this deer must feel at home, encompassed by the gorgeous green morphing to yellow-gold of fall.
Likewise, this pensive young woman is lost in deep thought while greens turn to flame and yellow-green.
I was especially enchanted by so many trees that combined various colors as their leaves slowly shut down the ports to chlorophyll and let their true hues burst froth in brilliant glory.
Green and Gold
Orange and Red, like a flame reaching heavenward.
And then, some trees seemed to us gifted with four colors at once!
Well, maybe that’s a Japanese maple photo bombing the sugar maple.
Just gazing across the cemetery, you see slopes rolling with gorgeous fall glory:
The trees were so gorgeous, Yang decided to stick one in his back pack to carry it home.
Just kidding: optical illusion.
I particularly loved this sage woman’s pensive and imposing presence, her blue-green copper complementing the reds and greens of the trees behind her.
And that, my friends, is all she wrote.
