Autumn foliage

My intention was to go out yesterday and take some pictures of the autumn colours - again. I'm convinced they are better this year than usual. I know they are nothing compared with some parts of the world, but they are pleasing this autumn. So I was disappointed when I saw the mist in the morning.

Still, it burned off fairly rapidly and a lovely sunny morning followed.

I was afraid that the previous day's rain would have taken all the leaves off the trees.

Certainly, a lot had come down. byt there were plently left to admire on the trees.

All these were taken near my mother's house.


  1. Like you I am convinced that this year's autumn colours are better than for some time past. Your photos help to prove it.


  2. I agree the colours are fantastic this year.. last year it was just a mouldy yellow due to the hot dry summer we had had...

  3. Thanks LR and Ladybanana. I've never really heard a proper explanation of why the colours should be better in some years. One I heard was that night temperatures need to be very low and daytime ones moderate, but clearly that isn't the case this year because we've had mild nights.


Forethoughts, afterthoughts, any thoughts. Tell me.
