Fall Colors

The trees are beginning to wear the reds, oranges and yellows of their autumn dress. Today we went for a rainy day autumn drive to look at the colors. Looking at the colors in the rain gives them a muted tone you never see on a sunny day. Here are a few of the images that we are seeing right now.
I took this at the local community college. The red leaves dominate the landscape, with just a hint of yellow. A pretty place for a picnic (if it was not raining).
I liked this image because it shows 3 of the colors we are seeing. The bright flame red, the yellow, and the green that has not changed yet. When you see the 3 colors together, the image is striking!

The delicate leaves of this tree, (I think it is a pistachio) are in high contrast to the greenery in the background. A good place to take a leisurely afternoon stroll....and if you take a few steps more you will see the creek.
What is up on the trees, will soon fall down to the ground. The blankets of leaves are amazing this time of year. What I liked about this shot is the green sprig that refuses to admit that autumn is here!
It’s a pretty time of year...the last big display of color before winter arrives. We’ll enjoy it while we can.
