Autumn Leaves on Shale

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons.  I enjoy it because it means the temperatures are cooling down and it’s time to start baking and making soups and stews again.  It’s also the last hurrah for beautiful colors in nature –  autumn leaves.  The trees turn from green to beautiful shades of yellow, orange and red.

My favorite leaves are maple and ginko.

But even when they fall from the trees they are still amazing to see as they form piles on the ground or in this case they land in a shale creek bed with the water washing over them or taking them for a ride.  We went  hiking looking for smaller birds this time in a nearby park and as the rains have been skimpy lately, we were able to walk across and partially in this stream where I saw this pretty maple leaf.

Update: We got some rain yesterday so maybe that will help the trees put out some more vivid colors in time.  Funny thing about autumn leaf viewing… not enough rain and the colors are blah but too much rain and wind and you end up with bare trees.  The fall color watch is on!

(Birding will be back next time)

    A beautiful image, Teri. Autumn is my favorite time of year, although not as colorful here as back in my native New England.
