BRIGHT LEAVES ON THE SQUARE

TODAY’S BRIGHT LEAVES

We were out most of the day with cameras taking far more pictures that I will probably ever have time to process — even minimally. I haven’t done almost any processing on any of these autumn shots except to straighten them if crooked, cropping, and making them smaller. And of course, for this challenge, figuring out if they can be made into a square and then making them square.

  1. All lovely fall shots, but I really like the third one.

    • Ah, the leafy tunnel. There are paths on both sides of the canal. Those were originally the paths the horses walked while pulling canal barges. In the winter, you can’t get across the little bridge. You also can’t walk the paths because they don’t clear them so between now and next April, these little parks will be unofficially closed. They never really close them, but the weather usually makes them unusable.

      Everyone loves that bridge and the tree tunnel. It’s small and so personal πŸ˜€

  2. Glorious seasonal hues, Marilyn. We were out for a woodland walk on Saturday and the tops of the trees that are turning were bathed in sunshine – it was a burst of autumnal splendour, I can tell you. πŸ˜€ It’s happening here at last, but still a lot of dark green around.

    • It varies a lot from spot to spot. The colors are much brighter in town on the Mumford than they are half a mile away at Riverbend. Brighter still in Rhode Island which is south of here and should still be waiting for peak colors. But the weather has finally turned to real autumn, so whatever we will get, we will get it all within the next few days.

    • They should peak this week. Looking out my front window right now is an exaltation.

      • I am so envious – still too warm here so the trees are not really turning, or they are going straight to brown

        • Some places are going straight to brown, but most are at least yellow and right now, if I look out my front winter, even the oaks have some red leaves — which I think is a first. I’ve never seen them turn red around the edges before. The weather is so strange. This is one of the latest fall has arrived here. The last time it was this late was in the early 1960s.

  6. Beautiful colours, Marilyn. I like the one with the distant people in the tunnel of trees best.

    • Me too. Garry got a few of those that are better than mine. I have more pictures than I can possible post, so autumn might last right up until Christmas this year ;-D
