Ruby Tuesday .. the Beauty of Autumn Leaves















The first three photos were taken today and yesterday; the last is an old favourite of mine taken several years ago and was scanned from a 35 mm print. The autumn colours are glorious and I cannot resist taking pictures of them each day!

Wow, what gorgeous fall colors! Our autumn "season" is usually more of an overnight jump from green trees one day (late December) to brown and bare the next. Thanks for sharing such autumnal beauty!

I want to be there, was my first thought when I saw these photos.
I thought Norway was a beauty in her automnian colors. She's fading like an old memory compared to these.
Wonderful.

We don't have autumn here, but if we have, it might be my favorite season because i just love how the colors change.

My Ruby Tuesday entries are now posted in my food blog and photo blog. Hope you can drop by. Thanks!

Nice scenery! I esp like the last photo.

Mary said...

Oh, wow...those are soooo pretty! Our leaves are turning brown and falling off without color thanks to our drought. It is raining out there right now....yeah!....maybe we will have color eventually. I can see why you love that last shot! What a beauty and the reflection just doubles it!

Carletta said...

Fall is my favorite time of the year for this very reason - you have captured the awesome beauty of the season.

That last one is gorgeous!

Wonderful photos!
Fall is my favorite time of the year and we are still a couple of weeks away from seeing the best colors.
I know it will be a Ruby Tuesday for me when I can photo the fall colors here.
Have a great Ruby Tuesday.

You've captured some really amazing trees, especially that last one. Sometimes autumn so incredibly beautiful, I almost find myself laughing in a Zen kind of way, from the sheer intensity of it!

Kimmie said...

Very pretty colors! I love this time of year. Our trees aren't as colorful yet, but we will hit peak very soon. Thank You for sharing such lovely photos for Ruby Tuesday!

All beautiful but the reflection in the lake is breath taking!

It's been so warm and humid here - we're still green

Wow, it really is autumn in your neck of the woods! The maple tree in my backyard is just starting to turn at the top. It won't be long, although its supposed to be in he 80's today. Summer continues...
