Autumn and the fallen

I love fall. Today my wife and I went driving up the Great River Road from Alton to Pere Marquette State Park. We stopped for a little walk in the town of Elsah. My wife loves the place and I love taking photos there. The leaves are near peak colour and are really coming off the tree.

Window in Elsah

On our way back from Grafton we swung through Elsah. My wife loves the town and we always take a quick drive through to just take a look. One of the photo themes for the St. Louis Photography Club meetup group this month is windows so I was looking for something to shoot. When I saw this window with the grass in front of it and the sunflower I had to get a shot.
