The colors of autumn are fading, but I have enough of this year’s collection in the digital files to last through a long winter.
I snapped this shot in the city, at my wife’s place of work while waiting to pick her up.

I’ve really enjoyed the fall colors this season. One morning I spent time in the woods just photographing leaves on the ground. While I’m looking for amazing colors and interesting patterns, I came across these berries reclining on a burgundy blanket. I’m pretty sure these are not the edible blueberries we love.
The rich contrast between the blue of the berries and the deep red of the maple leaf make this a photo a favorite in my autumn collection.
It looks even cooler in the larger version because you can see tiny moisture beads on the berries. Click on the photo to see what I’m talking about.
The light behind these red leaves gave them a unique, velvety quality. Thanks you, Autumn, for brightening our lives.

The wild sumac plant provides plenty of color and interesting patterns. It’s one of the first plants to change color – to a bright red – in early autumn.

This is another view of the sumac plant in early fall. This example is in transition. In a short time, all the leaves in this frame will be bright, scarlet red. (As you can see, in the previous post.)

It’s bright! It’s bold! It’s serrated! It’s red! It’s sumac in the fall! The slender green leaves of the sumac plant turn this bright red color when autumn arrives in N.E. Wisconsin.

I love the way the color and light were dancing among these leaves of autumn.
This is another shot taken while waiting to pick up my wife at her place of work. The earlier post – Fall Arrangement – was from the same shoot.
This looks even better in the larger version. Click the photo to see for yourself.
One of the first plants to show it’s autumn colors is the sumac. The leaves turn from a deep green to a bright scarlet red.

The color of this little autumn woodland scene caught my eye. The lines and textures of the leaves kept my interest. The little stem that supported these leaves was covered with tiny thorns.

This is a springtime image – new growth on young trees. I took this photo last spring in some woods near our home. I added a bit of texture to it, adding some visual interest.
