Old Mine Park – Trumbull, Connecticut

I was driving around a couple of days ago after work looking for something interesting to photograph when I came upon these scenes in Trumbull, Connecticut’s Old Mine Park.  Most times of the year, it wouldn’t be very interesting, but I really liked the fall foliage.
