Leaf Turning

Posted by Chris at November 5, 2005 4:52 PM

Beautiful day, wasn't it?

My maple tree dropped every blessed leaf between sometime yesterday, and this afternoon. My black car was...under there somewhere!

And it didn't bother me a bit. That particular type of golden sunshine did nothing but make me that much happier to be alive today.

(And wow, did I just catch you posting?)

The past few days have been beautiful here in Michigan.

Unbelievably vibrant colors, bigfoot. Thanks!

Today was such a beautiful day. I love those pictures. They remind me of home (upstate NY), which is so hard to be away from during the fall. I was looking out of the window today at the trees, wishing I had a camera to take some great pictures, but these have captured it.

Hey Chris....
How do you put three photos into one frame on flickr??

Posted by: Steph at November 5, 2005 7:26 PM

Ohhh la la. Very nice and pretty. Looks like you're at your fall peak. We're just a smidge past our peak now here in the midwest but it's still gorgeous.

My favorite time of year. Thanks for the beautiful pictures. They made me feel all warm and fuzzy! :)

Gorgeous pictures!!!

Oooh, pretty! Leaves don't change colors here. For the most part, they stay green until we have a decent cold snap and then they fall off overnight. Boring!

It really is beautiful out there. I tried to capture the colors, but I think you did a much better job.

There's a tree I pass on my way to work and it looks like it's blushing. It starts with a beautiful pinkish-red at the top and it grows fainter and fainter until it's yellowy gold down toward the bottom. I'd love to photograph it but I don't think my camera would do it justice.

that's why fall is my favorite. of course, when the trees start to blossom in the spring, i'll tell you that spring is my favorite. i like them both.

How come your peak is prettier than our peak? Ours have seemed much more dull here in NWI the past few years.

Posted by: Tricia at November 6, 2005 5:18 PM

ooooooooooooooo pretty! I sure do miss my fall leaves!

God that's gorgeous, says the gal from the land of everything being permanently green. fall? what's fall?

I'm so jealous, living in Texas where it never gets cold (going to be 87 tomorrow, time to move)

Posted by: trish at November 7, 2005 5:24 PM

Wow!! that looks beautiful. I wish we had that in Mty... trees are green here all year round.
