This photo was taken from the same place and at the same time as the previous one. The sky is considerably bluer to the northwest than it was to the north, but there are still significant clouds as can be seen by the long shadow cast by one of them from the middle to the right of the mountainside. Fortunately, here the sun does illumine the trees in the foreground, showing off their brilliance in a close-up of the riot of colours repeated on the mountainsides.
The greens of the fields (no killing frost had yet occurred near the Mabou River), the bright red of the barn, and the dark greens of the evergreens—definitely in the minority here—add interesting counterpoints to the colours of the leaves. With the Cape Mabou Highlands as a backdrop, they form a tableau of pastoral grandeur that makes the spirit leap with joy at its quiet beauty.
