Even on a gloomy, misty day, there is beauty to be found.
These photos were taken today, Veteran's Day, at Cave Hill Cemetery. It is an historic place that includes a National Cemetery which honors the military service of the America's veterans.
Every Veteran's Day, a local veteran's group places flags on all graves
at the National Cemetery. An honorable tradition. This section holds
graves of Civil War soldiers.
Not sure what kind of trees these are, but the leaves looked like
pieces of gold hanging from the branches.

Perhaps someone can identify this tree for me?
This maple, although the photo doesn't capture it, looked as if someone
had plugged it in and flipped the electrical switch. Even under gray skies it was brilliant.
I love that I can see the graceful branching of this stately tree.
I am surprised that so many trees are still hanging on to their leaves.
But, as I stood and took this picture, they were swirling all
around me. It was like being in a 'leaf globe'. With rain and cold
coming in this week, I am glad I captured these colors of fall
before they disappear into winter.
