It took a while to happen but the leaves have finally started to show their Fall colors.  I rode along the rail trail on October 18th and stopped at a small opening through which I noted this small swamp.  The bare trunks rising from it contrasted nicely against the changing colors in the background.  I waited for a break in the clouds to bring out the colors and captured this image.

Technical: Shot at f/2.8 to make the foreground trunk stand out and blur the background.  Used a circular polarizer to bring out the reflection in the water and help with the foliage colors.
