A recent walk though some woods provided a lot of fall color. On this trip, I focused on the small picture – close-up images of colorful leaves.
This caught my eye because of the combination of red and green against the dark background.
It seemed the smaller leaves were resisting the change. A youthful rebellion.

The beautiful colors of autumn are a testimony to God’s artistic creativity. What a blessing to behold the autumn leaves.
The leaves in our area have faded and stripped from the trees by gusty fall winds this last week. But we still have some dandy images.

It’s autumn in Wisconsin and the leaves have turned brilliant colors. In this area, one of the most transformations is the wild sumac plant – turning from green to orange and then a deep red.
This is the tip of a wild sumac branch being illuminated by the morning sun. The photo doesn’t do it justice.

On my way to work, one morning, I stopped along the highway to photograph a patch of bushes that were turning bright fall colors. I’d been noticing them for days and finally took the time to stop, to catch the early morning light.
I took plenty of photos and then noticed the reflection from the water in the ditch that runs along the road. I thought the color combination was very appealing.
I originally titled this image, “Fall in a Ditch,” but as you can see, I thought better of it.

This is an appropriate image to bid Autumn farewell. Even though this may have been the tiniest tree in the forest, it was determined to put on a striking display of fall color. I’m amazed this twig of a tree, with just two large leaves, even made it to fall.
This photo was taken a few years ago. Busy schedules and weather worked against my plans to grab some great fall images this year…and last year. I see the autumn colors and think, I’ll have to get out and take some photos – and then weather turns bad, strong winds come in, and the trees loose all that beauty. Well, maybe next year.
