Red Leaves

Well, here it is, almost mid-August, and we are already starting to get a few hints of the seasonal changes to come with the approach of September. Last week I photographed these red Maple leaves that have already changed colour. These are the exception, rather than the rule, but a few early ones can always be found, giving us a hint that those lazy, hazy days of summer and humid heat will soon be drawing to a close.

Beautiful ruby reds, and a real reminder to get out there and make the most of the summer we have left.

Red leaves already? I did just chomp on my first crisp macintosh apple. Beautiful rendering of the leaves.

Oh goodness, let's not go there, but I have seen them around here too sneaking up on us.
Happy RT.

It seems that fall is sneaking up already...the leaves are beautiful thought and it is my favorite time of the year.

Very beautiful, but I sure hate to think about changing leaves already. I love fall, but don't want to rush into winter. I like that second shot with the spotted trunk behind.

I love maple leaves in Autumn especially but yikes...isn't this a bit early for colors changing?

I love the fall though...

Nature makes the best colors.

I'm actually looking forward to the end of summer. I prefer the cooler days.
