Fall colors in the winter


I'm starting to see trees turning colors here in the desert southwest.  The fall colors start arriving here after the beginning of winter and when the leaves on trees in northern states are long gone.

I spotted this tree when I looked down a street and saw a burst of color among all the green in this neighborhood.

Much better than the scenery we are getting here. Enjoy the colours while you can before some wacky weather passes through.

Beautiful colours, after the winds we had last night and this morning I'll be surprised if we have any trees left!

Nice bit of color, we don't have that at the moment, very gray now.

I find this color incredible as we are surrounded by white here in the Midwest. Must keep up your spirits during the long winter months.

A bit of Maine of 3 months ago.

That happens here, too, but that first photo is glorious. The light is outstanding! You certainly have a photographer's eye!

As soon as those leaves fall off the new buds will start to appear and then new leaves. Your trees don't have much time to rest. Our leaves were all fallen in the first part of November.

Everything is white and silvery here from ice and snow so it is nice to see some colour, Sharon!

Gosh, this is beautiful, Sharon.

Beautiful shots, Sharon, particularly that first one.
