    Oh my goodness, this photo is just so beautiful. The colours in the trees are amazing. Wow. Whereabouts are you Eliza? I’m presuming somewhere in the US?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, New England. Our maple foliage is world famous! ๐Ÿ˜‰ This was taken in our back yard. Ephemeral color, most the leaves have come down, we just have the oaks and beeches left.

  16. Oh… very pretty! I like the contrast of the dark trunks with all that color.

  17. Laurie Graves says:

    So very beautiful. And the ephemeral makes it all the more beautiful.

    I think I commented on this last year, too … but I really hope to see those fall colours in America for myself one day. Fall (autumn, as we call it) is such a dour, grey season in South Australia. I have read of the fall leaves in your part of the world many times. Like cherry blossom in Japan (which I also have never seen), it seems to be one of nature’s miracles.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      It is pretty miraculous, I agree. I hope you will get to see it someday. Start in mid-September in the north and follow the color south until the end of October. Ours generally peaks the second week in Oct.
      You would miss your spring, but it would be worth it!

    Truly breath-giving Eliza. My favorite season is fall and walks in trees such as these have inspired a lifetime of memories. Thank you for the flashback. Ahhhh…
