Autumn Scene - Lake Waramaug State Park, Connecticut

The foliage season was quite late here in Connecticut this year. In fact, there are still some leaves on the trees that are falling. This has to be the latest time of the year that I can remember. Even though I have been home since mid-October, I didn't get out to shoot. I guess my thirty day vacation and photo trip got the best of me. Even I can get overwhelmed after shooting for that long and just need some time away from photography. I am sure that I missed some stellar foliage but there is always next year.

One great thing about not editing every photo that I have shot during the years is that I can go back to favorite places and relive those experiences. I found this photo that I had not edited from 2009 and thought it would be a great representation of fall in Connecticut. Lake Waramaug is not a huge lake but it is quite picturesque, especially during the fall. A good portion of the lake is owned privately, but there is a state park on its northwestern shore that offers swimming, fishing, picnicking, camping, boating and canoeing.
