    I particularly like the second photograph. At a quick glance the viewer might be forgiven for perceiving it as a monochrome image but the joy is is the subtlety of the colour and those golden brown elements. Very nice indeed 🙂
    Best wishes….
    PS I really enjoy your sharing the Snapple cap offerings…

      Thanks, PC. That’s an interesting thing about fall foliage is that some of it is brightly colored and some are less saturated, I like the contrast between the two photos.

    Very nice . . . most of the trees here tend to a dull brown or dull yellow . . . but I suppose I could punch them up a bit.

    Is that frost in the second photo, post-processing, natural color, or a bit of all three?

      Thanks, E. We haven’t had a frost yet but I expect we’ll get some soon. On the second photo, I thought the green was too saturated since it was in a dense shade so I cut down the green saturation and that picked up some of the red in the vines. It’s way better this way (I think).

      It’s a nice look, for sure.

    Love the organic patterns, particularly of that second one.

    The first one really moves me. So sparkling. Such a variety of yellows and greens. So full of sunshine.

      Thanks, Linda. The leaves of the River Birtch are somewhat small, about 2 inches from the tip of the leaf to the end of the stem. They go from a deep green to a bright yellow quickly this time of year. They seem to glow when the sun hits them just right.

    The second photo reminds me a bit of the mangroves in Florida with their randomness. The hint of color adds a bit of mischief as well. Tooth enamel, huh? Who’da thunk? Kathy digs the Paul Simon quote.

      Thanks, Tom. I’ve all but forgotten about the trees in Florida but I think you’re right. Glad Kathy liked the quote, too.

    Ohhh, the second image is wonderful! Those stray bits of orange in there and the lacy look…really nice! It’s interesting that in spite of having an overall pattern there’s lots of movement in the frame. Sorry for the late comment.

      Thanks, Lynn. We were lucky to have a really nice, colorful Fall this year. I hope to do some more before it gets really cold out. BTW, there’s no such thing as a late comment.
