Our photo of the day features the Kennebago River.

The cycle of leaves turning from bare to buds to green to fiery hues is such a wonder. And although we always know that a simple change of seasons is coming, sometimes it seems so surprising and monumental anyway. This photo by Richard Liebert of early autumn at the Kennebago River in Maine is a good reminder that fall is a-coming, even if other parts of the country feel downright summery.
