Audacious Science and Natural Beauty

I came upon a fascinating article while taking a break from packing for the INFORMS conference in San Diego. The article is on Audacious Science and scientists who take bold risks and who through their creativity and tenaciousness go against the prevailing dogma. It also mentions how great scientists often have in their heritage a flair for the arts. You may find the article here and it is definitely worth a read since it is provocative.

Since Amherst and New England are at the height of a magnificent fall foliage season I wanted to preserve some of the beauty through the photos that I took locally. Nature may look very different after I return from California.
