Fall Colours

A high part of this season in the NorthEast is the effect of the changing colours of the leaves of trees on the landscape. We devoted last weekend to some significant exploring of SouthWestern Ontario to try to find the most dramatically coloured trees.

The answer - these two trees above found right beside my wife's apartment building.

Usually one hits trees with fairly intense red, yellow, or orange colouring. We found no intense orange. There is a large maple behind my house that has potential for a few days from now.

The red maple is what we miss here (BC). Fall is a mixture of yellows and browns with only a little red. It makes a big difference and the fall colours of the east will surely be missed by anyone who moves west. But since thats the only thing one could miss, it is a small price to pay.
