Last of the autumn colors

Our autumn was pretty disappointing this year. Too much rain I guess. The colors were not brilliant. Most the of the trees went right into ochres, burnt siennas, and umber colors. Very dull and muted. A lot of the leaves fell off before achieving full color. A few days ago the sun came out and I took a drive down by Monksville Reservoir to see if any color had survived the wind and rain of last weekend. I found some at Long Pond Ironworks that I’d like to share, especially since it’s foggy and drizzly here this morning.

One of the things to truly shine this year were the burning bushes. They waited until the trees had lost most of their leaves so they could steal the whole show.

I give you Magenta Pink. (with a little reddish orange mixed in)

You can always count on the red maple for a fantasic fall display! I think that’s a red maple- am I right?
We just don’t get that kind of color down here!

Yes, Jess, maple is correct. We had very few reds this year. Everyone noticed their absence. This one managed to still put on a good show!

WOW! That’s much more color than I’m seeing around here.

Lovely! Happy Halloween!

Hard to pick which one is my favorite…cool!

It doesn’t look dull in these pics, though I’m sure you chose your images carefully.

Fall here has been spectacular. I was attributing that to all the rain! Who knows why?

Gorgeous colors. I really love the old house, it just fits right into the mood. Our colors were here one day and gone the next and not nearly as brilliant as yours.
