Some Autumn Color


We have had nights down in the 40 degree range and days that stay in the 50s. That has been enough to push a few trees into their autumn color. We have had a lot of rain the last week and it was chilly and still misting rain today so the colors are muted. It was what I understand the Irish call a "soft" day. Nevertheless, here is a nice Sweetgum tree showing orange and yellow.


And here is a Red Oak still green with a frosting of deep red. It will be only a few weeks before they all put on their colors. When the sun comes out again I will take better pictures.

Great autumn shots. Actually having it kinda rainy makes your photo's look more like fall. Really like the first shot.

Autumn is a beautiful season, particularly when the sun is still shining as is happening here in England at the moment. We're experiencing a real Indian summer.

What's the temperature in Celsius? I assume this is Fahrenheit ;-)
