Texture Tuesday: Free and Easy--Adirondacks in the Fall

Iconic Adirondack scenery: white Adirondack chairs in front of Blue Mountain Lake
I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to go to one of my favorite places in my favorite season--the Adirondacks in the Fall. I went specifically for the photo opportunities with a friend of mine (and fellow shutterbug) who lives in a region of the country where there is not much of a fall. I do live where there is a change of seasons and a pretty nice fall (in Indiana), but the difference is there are not as many lakes (at least not right around every bend as there is in the Adirondacks) and, also, there are no mountains in Indiana.

I am still getting through all my shots from the long weekend. I took a great deal more than I do when I am on a 'regular' vacation with my family. 

Above are two shots that I decided to add Kim's textures to. 

Below are a few more shots that I have edited, but decided to forgo the textures.

It is a lovely time of year in a lovely part of the country. I hope to make this is a yearly tradition!
