11.12.2022 A day late for Foliage Friday

Especially since it would be the one, I am pretty sure.

This birch image was made a few minutes after the previous solo oak tree on Quabbin Hill and just before the oak tree in fog.  They are all just a few feet apart but with very different situations. The top of the hill was fogless but lower where the second linked image was had substantial fog.

Most of our foliage is long gone at this point but there still are a few single trees here and there…some alone and some surrounded by less colorful trees.  This was a glorious season.

  1. It’s interesting the vast change in elements. I see the hint of fog at the bottom left edge of the horizon but wouldn’t have noticed without your comments. Beautiful capture!

  2. We’re glad to hear you had a glorious fall. Not everyone gets to see such colorful foliage for themselves.

    Well, then: how about ‘Spendiferous Saturday’? This is one of my favorite color combinations; the blue and brown shades certainly evoke the Southwest for me.

    • That’s a good one and I may borrow it sometime. There are not too many color combinations that I do not enjoy. Yellow and blue are complementary colors and orangey brown (due to the warm lighting) is close enough to make this a nice combination. Glad that you like it.

    It’s an amazing thing when we are enveloped in fog until we travel a short distance and find clear skies. Both conditions have their appeal.

    That birch is like me. A late bloomer but with handsome foliage. Okay, sparse foliage, but quite handsome.

    • I am just as head mop challenged, Wally. I don’t think there is enough to be judged as handsome of not. It’s just there. 🙂
      One other location, where I shoot the hill and valley overlaps offers great fog scenery. It often is slowly drifting making for ever changing compositions and lighting. Finding the different densities here was a real treat.

    Plenty of red foliage left to photograph, Steve! As the saying goes: better late than never.

    Lovely color, Steve. Isn’t it wonderful, the way fog is so changeable and localized?
