More leaf peeping

A bunch more from my leaf-peeping drive.
The ski slope you can see on the left in this first photo is Sunday River in Bethel, ME.

That old gas pump from yesterday? There were actually two of them:
And I tried a cool new texture I downloaded on the photo from yesterday. It's called "Ominous Clouds" by ghostbones (free on Flickr).
I feel like my landscape photos never capture the real beauty I see with my eyes. Landscapes are always so much better in real life. I love living in Maine this time of year.

These are absolutely stunning! The leaves are gorgeous up there! Ours are probably a week or so behind yours. Those old gas pumps are AWESOME, I love what that action did to the rusty texture of it and the blue fading paint!

Your first photo literally makes me want to weep! Doug and I went searching for good fall pictures in town today. . . and I took none! Nada! Not even one! Your fall is absolutely gorgeous!

And now I feel better; I just looked at everyone else's comments . . . . and feel like where you live is truly special. . . instead of like everyone else has beautiful fall, except for us.
