Scenic Sunday: Lake Canterbury

Autumn colors in a tree at Lake Canterbury dock, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 5, 2011.

Betsy and I took a ride this past Saturday afternoon to see what autumn color we could find here in the Glade.  The colors are past their peak, but we did find some trees with pretty rust-colored leaves.

The tree above is near a small pubic dock on Lake Canterbury here in the Glade.  We usually pass this lake when going to or from town.

There are some nice waterfront homes along that lake, but the reflections are more beautiful as far as we’re concerned.

The late afternoon sun made created a perfect autumn scene.

    The reflection of the fire in those leaves is magnificent! Is that a cast line on the water, in front of the dock, in the last one? That would be a beautiful place to fish.

    Great pictures, George. Beautiful colors and the reflections are perfect. We have so many Conifers and not too many hardwood trees so we just cannot compete with the many colors. Our mountainside foliage is usually green and bright yellows. We like them too. MB
