fall foliage from Landsat 8

Landsat 8 image of New York’s Finger Lake region. WRS-2 Path 16 Row 30, acquired Oct. 24, 2014.

Oct 27, 2014 • In this natural color Landsat 8 image of New York’s Finger Lake region acquired on Oct. 24, 2014, fall foliage colors of orange, rust, and sage can be seen surrounding the vivid blue lakes, bringing to mind a line from L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables: “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

Thanks to Julia Barsi and Nina Raqueno for bringing this image to our attention.
