But the air’s so appetizin’; and the landscape through the haze
Of a crisp and sunny morning of the airly autumn days
Is a pictur’ that no painter has the colorin’ to mock–
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock.

[James Whitcomb Riley]

Robert Pence, photographer, recorded these and other images of our Hoosier autumn on his tour of Salomon Farm Park, Fort Wayne, Indiana. For more of his photos, select this LINK. Bob also took the fisherman photo in the masthead—the fisherman is my son James and the photo was taken about 18 years ago.
