The last autumn breath

The third day of November was the usual partly cloudy and sunny day in Toronto. There were no rain and wind. But it was the last chance to see the fall colour. Next day rain and wind washed all that beauty out. Now we have mostly grey and rainy November days. The nature is waiting for the white winter attire. My daily companion iPhone helped to save this day for your review.

The first picture is the Grenadier Pond  with the reflection of the High Park trees in it.
