Magnificent Autumn! He comes not like a pilgrim, clad in russet weeds. He comes not like a hermit, clad in gray. But he comes like a warrior, with the stain of blood upon his brazen mail.

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. First published in “The Blank Book of a Country Schoolmaster,” 1835, in Knickerbocker, or New York Monthly Magazine. Here.


October is such a wonderful time of year. I’m not sure which is greater, the color of the trees or the warm sun that bathes wood and field. I won’t claim that the colors in this image have not been enhanced. Technically, the image belongs to the recent series of digitally manipulated photographs.
