Autumn Reflections, Carrier Arboretum

November at the Duck Pond

The Edith J. Carrier Arboretum at JMU is a place we return to again and again. It's convenient to Harrisonburg's stores and doctors' offices so we find ourselves in the area, and it's a great place to make a pretty day into a beautiful one.

I didn't use artistic filters on these images but I did brighten them by merging a duplicate layer using "soft light" and also saturating the color in Photoshop.

FaceTweet it!


  1. Wow, the colours in that first shot are stunning.
    I love the shot of the Mallard gliding through the colour palette too.

  2. Glad you like the pictures! We had a long and beautiful autumn here.
