My persimmon tree right now.
My persimmon tree right now.
Leaves remaining on trees have turned a rusty color.
where is that? It looks lovely. It makes me want to get in a canoe.
That's in Harold Parker State Forest. It's about 4 or 5 miles down the road from home.
After many days of rain I finally got a picture of the trees dressed in autumn. Today the sky is clear so the colors of the leaves are even brighter.
The place is not the best for a nice photo but in the coming days it is still expected rain so I didn't waste the opportunity
I love the combination of colors!
The calendar says it's still autumn but yesterday's snow flurry day had more of a feel of winter. As I drove home from the coast just after the sun set I could see a bit of snow swirling on the ground. You can even see a bit of white on the frozen section of this pond.
A touch of late autumn color...
We’ll be in your area in a few days and you just got me to bring a warmer coat. 🥶
Here it’s still in the 70s in the day and high 40s at night, but the trees still seem to know what to do. The sidewalks are filling with a carpet of yellow leaves.
This was a few years ago but here’s what the ginkgo trees look like in front of our house.
Very cool! I love that your dog is happily posing for you.
This young tree is very strong, although the pouring rain of the last few weeks does not leave its leaves 🍁(unlike its brothers who already have their winter clothes). Yesterday a day of respite from the rains but from last night it started to rain again...😣 if it goes on like this I will have to build myself a raft 🛶🙃😄
You’re lucky. Nothing but fires in California where I live, and in Australia. No rain. 😢
We’ve been in Boston the last few days and saw a lot of these. Pretty.
it's raining too much here. Italy is having a lot of damage from this long wave of bad weather. From you the earth burns, here the earth crashes, but despite these disasters nature still gives us spectacular images. Beautiful this image, beautiful colors 🏵
I awoke to see the sun just starting to light the tops of the pistachio trees the city planted in our neighborhood. They turn last of all our trees here in CA but when they do, they range from yellow to red on the same tree.
Some people took them out because they don't grow fast, but the ones that persisted are now fairly impressive trees, and beautiful.
It was 32 degrees — very cold for us and I stepped out in my bare feet to get a couple quick snaps. But when I saw all the beautiful flowers still blooming, covered in fine dew, I started traipsing in my neighbor's yards with my light shirt to take photos.
The neighbors on my block know me and it's fine, but I was quite a sight to the ones traipsing through from surrounding blocks who thought I must have escaped from the local asylum.
After awhile I was walking on frozen clubs, but with this light and these flowers, warmth could wait.
And in my own front yard, just steps from the front door, the bird of paradise are alive.
I've never seen a pistachio tree before, very pretty! I love the mixed colors.
This is gorgeous!
Did you manage to grab some shoes before walking in the wet yards? 32 degrees is too cold to be barefoot!
Autumn here down in the Southern Hemisphere here now, so I can start to add to this feed now. We don't get the big colour changes with the trees here as most of our trees here keep their leaves during winter, in summer the trees shed their bark instead, there are a couple of places that have trees from the north which will lose their leaves, so may try and get to those places in a month’s time when the colours start, but for now just the flowering plants of winter, this one's a Correa (Adorabell) Rutaceae. In the Australian Botanic Gardens, Mount Annan, last Saturday. Two off camera speedlites hand held for this shot.
Staying put at home these days so no trips to the botanic gardens for a while, but that doesn't mean no photography, This was taken in the front garden today, a little Flannel flower.
Lighting, two speedlites main on the flower, and a second on the foliage with a chocolate gel for the golden colour. Always fun playing with light to see what you can create.
