The Fall Colors Keep Getting Better

We have been having good cooperation among the weather deities, as rainfall, day time, and night time temperatures have been nearly ideal for the production of vivid fall leaf coloration in this area.  The photograph below shows the progress that has occurred since my last post on the subject of fall colors.

Color change is underway

You may recall from a previous post entitled Landscaping My Way – Installment #1 that I have taken pains to preserve patches of dwarf sumac in some of the clearings on the ranch.  The photograph above shows why I save the sumacs – they are the beautiful bright red plants that you see at the base of the hills above, and I revel in their vivid splendor this time of the year.

I will continue to post periodic updates on the fall colors out here, as long as they continue to improve.  A bright, sunny day is forecast for Saturday, so maybe I will have the opportunity to take some nice pictures.

  1. Pablo – Thanks. I’m finding it very difficult to get any photographs that capture the essence of what I can see with my eyes. Maybe 1 out of every 100 shots I take even come close. It makes me really appreciate the skill of serious nature photographers such as Tim Ernst and others.

    David – I can’t wait! Is it too early for me to start preheating the oven for the bird?

  2. Reminds me of home… only home had more orange.

    Of course, I don’t consider that ‘home’ anymore, so I don’t know why I still call it that, but suffice to say this picture gives me the warm fuzzies.

    Thanks, Hal 😉
