Autumn at Eagle Creek Park

As autumn descended on Indiana in October, Margaret and I took our cameras on a long hike through Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis. This park is quite large, so much so that people sometimes mistakenly think it’s a state park. In fact, it’s an Indianapolis city park!

Eagle Creek Park is an easy drive from our home in Zionsville, and we visit two or three times a year to hike. Autumn is by far the most beautiful time to do that.

I made some photos there with my Nikon Df and the 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF Nikkor lens attached.

      It’s a terrific park. The whole time I’ve lived in Indianapolis and Zionsville it’s been close by. The first place I lived here was within easy bicycling distance!

    Nice. I have lived in Florida for almost 30 years and still miss the fall days in Indianapolis and traveling through a southern Indiana on a cool day when the leaves are changing.

    Thank you for sharing.

      I’ve thought many times about moving to a place with easy winters. But you lose the full sense of four seasons when you do that. So I stay!

    What a lovely place to walk! The Df does a good job, too; I really like the way it renders color. You are lucky to have such a nice place to play and photograph. BTW – Happy Thanksgiving, Jim. I so enjoy your blog. Have a wonderful time!

    Other than some time spent with friends sailing on the reservoir years ago, I have never been to this park. I ought to change that.
