The Autumn Leaves are Turning to the Color of Rust

    Newer Older

    A few oak leaves that have already changed for the fall, backlit by the setting sun near the Cranberry Bog in Carlisle, MA.

    Although the foliage is apparently near peak in Vermont and parts of New Hampshire, most of the trees around here remain green with a few beautiful exceptions. The ones that changed colors soonest are aready starting to look a bit bare.

      Great shot! Love the time of year when the leaves change color. I am in Florida and we do not get much color!

      Beautiful. The colors are just starting to change here. Not looking like the best year for colors. The hot/cold/hot/cold weather messes them up.

      Gorgeous colors. No colors here yet in southern MA, and usually we've turned by Columbus Day.

      simply beautiful, Peter. I was looking at the trees today and thinking that autumn seems late this year - thanks for bringing it to us!

      Subtle and so beautiful. The light across that leaf is breathtakingly beautiful.

      They’re just jealous of youth, right?

      Lovely shot. I really like the light filtering in from the background.

      Dennis Wilkinson You got it! Well done spotting the The The song lyric (that was fun to write!).
      Larry White, Jr. Katie Hansen travelwhimsy The foliage really does seem to be late this year -- I hope we don't miss the peak entirely! Last year was spectacular.
