Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey: Colorful Clouds and Sunbeam at Dawn

Just before the sun rose this morning, the clouds became bright orange with a beam of sunlight projecting up. I grabbed a camera and went out into my backyard. The display didn’t last long, but it was worth getting cold.

Later in the afternoon it got cloudy and the temperature kept dropping. I noticed this young buck (horns just barely showing) being lazy eating grass just behind my patio.

Lots of leaves every fall, and a broken statue lying on the ground.
