Autumn in Pennsylvania

This is a painting by Thomas Moran painted in 1864 and depicts Cresham Glen on the
Wissahickon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The area has been preserved but the city has grown up around it so things have changed
along the Wissahickon since he completed this work.
I really miss Pennsylvania this time of year because of the vibrant autumn colors that we don't have on the southern coastal plain.
This is a large desktop and can be saved to your computer by clicking on the image;
if you need a standard size you will find that here
I hope you enjoy the colors in this painting as much as I.
