It’s a time of transition in the Midwestern United States and other cooler climates. The transition between summer and winter, warm weather and cold, frappuccinos and hot apple cider, baseball and football and leaving and going to work in the sun to in the dark. It’s Autumn.
Another thing that is changing is deciduous trees are going from green and lively to bare. One of the things that makes me and many others happy is what happens in-between. Let’s call it the colors of Autumn.
Recently I’ve gone around parts of Michigan and Ohio to capture these Autumn colors. Now that’s what a hard frost looks like!
A close up shot of the previous tree. Orange and yellow, beautiful.
Along with frost on the ground (and car windows ahhhh) comes a cool Autumn mist hovering over the water. Well unfortunately after the leaves changing color, the time will come for them to start falling. 😦
It’s time to reflect on the colors. Sorry I had to say it. 🙂
Please windy days stay away. All that’s left will be lots of raking.
Before that enjoy the variety of colors even on the ground…
…and watch them collect along curbs on the street.
Hope this squirrel can navigate the leaves to gather its nuts.
In all seriousness, until all the leaves are on the ground, the trees are bare and winter is upon us, enjoy the colors of Autumn.
Go for walk, hike, drive or bicycle ride and soak it all in. Gotta go! Time to get back out on the open trail and capture some more color.
Where in the Midwest or elsewhere would you recommend going to capture the colors of Autumn?
