Post Sandy. The beach was fairly clean, save for some interesting tidewrack.
Straightened in Snapseed.
Our fall foliage is often brown, especially in our neighborhood. Being so close to the ocean, the salt brought in by the offshore breezes squelches autumn color. Usually by now a tropical storm or hurricane has blown through or close enough to brown everything to a crisp. This year we are just beginning to enjoy some vivid color and Sandy will come by this weekend and ruin it. So enjoy it while you can.
