By the time I had reached the Upper Glencoe Road, the sun was again peeping through the heavy clouds, briefly lighting up this scene. The brilliant red tree at the centre right immediately catches the eye, as does the white house along the Glencoe Road at the centre of the photo amidst fields which have seen in places a light frost—with all the rain that fell this summer and fall, there is no way these tan fields could have resulted from drought! The mixed forest here appears to be about half evergreens and half deciduous trees, but colourful nonetheless. The smidgens of the distant mountains visible at the left and the right of the photo lie between Brook Village and Whycocomagh.

The telephone poles along the Whycocomagh Road mark its course across the upper left portion of the photo, with a bit of the road showing above the right end of the tan field. Its junction with the Glencoe Road is at the far left, just outside the scope of this photo. The Mull River runs between the Upper Glencoe Road and the Whycocomagh Road here; its course can be made out if one looks carefully at the foreground of this photo, though the river itself is not visible.
