SkyWatch Friday: It's beginning to look a lot like Autumn

I decided to take some photographs Wednesday of the fall leaves on the trees around my house and pick one for SkyWatch. The blue sky was such a good backdrop for the drama of the leaves.
Photobucket
Try as I might I couldn't pick just one. The first photograph is of the dogwood tree at peak and close to being past it with some leaves already fallen. The next one is the maple tree not quite peaking except for the leaves at the very tip.
Photobucket
I think I'll call the last shot anticipation as my big oaks are giving me a teaser of color but have a way to go. I'm reminded of Goldy Locks and the three bears - one too hot, one too cold, and one just right. Although to me all stages of fall foliage are just right be they beginning or ending.

Great photos...the sun really lights up the color....looks good for your header shot...autumn is so beautiful

Mojo said...

How odd. None of my trees are really doing much yet. Usually by this time of year I'm seeing an array of colors, but they're hanging on this year for whatever reason. Must be I have a different assortment of trees in my neck of the woods.

But they sure look awesome against that crystal blue sky!

Gorgeous shots as always, Carver, love the rich colors of the leaves. But I think my favorite is the last one -- what a tease that tree is! I love it!

Enjoy your weekend!

Autumn just makes the tree very beautiful for photos. Love all the shots, nice use of the clear blue sky to contrast the photo at the back.

Have a good weekend.

Love your comments. I'm always trying to find the tree that is "just right!" As a cancer survivor, you will like my post today! Happy Friday.

Wren said...

I'm glad you shared all three, carver. You're right - all the variations are interesting and lovely in their own right, and the bright blue sky stars in all of them.
