This is a scene from around my area, but with a higher elevation than my home town.  It's much cooler, and the leaves have already started to change.   I rushed autumn a little more by removing most of the leaves from the mid ground trees and enhancing the colors of those in the background.  I will be painting outside a lot now, since the heat and humidity eased.   I really enjoy this time of year, and try to do a lot of small plein air sketches to convert into larger works in my studio later, when winter makes it's appearance.       Mike
