10.07.2021 The color is coming along

We’ve had a fair amount of rain recently which has slowed the color change here.  But there are small pockets where one can find a bit.

Actually, the dead tree got my attention and then it was all the other trees and shrubs that got “added”.

Thought I should post this after the other less than attractive post from earlier.

  3. I have been told you missed the Maine colors by just about a week 😳. Ellen did also.

    • From reports it does seem so. It’s hard to predict. Plus Mary Beth’s birthday kind of decided our dates to be there. Fortunately there will be color here. It’s a shame she travelled so far and missed it. I am guessing she was there for other reasons and foliage would have been a bonus.

  4. Did you also do any significantly different compositions with the dead tree?

    • No. There really isn’t another approach aside from this at a distance along the rail trail. Any other angle I found less pleasing and not in harmony with all that was in the background. I imagine someone else with a different vision might do something else but this was what appealed to me.

    I like the spare “dead” tree in the midst of all that color. Very nice photo, Steve.

    I agree: That old tree skeleton really grabs the attention. Like Steve S, I’d like to see more of it.

    This one is a nicely balanced composition, with dead trees, live trees, and that great touch of color. I’m seeing just a hint of color down here, but mostly just falling brown leaves. 🙂

  12. Thanks, Todd. Our color is not quite as spectacular as in some years but it is building.
