  • Fall colors...

    I knew I should have taken my camera with me last weekend when the fall colours were at their peak, but I didn't so I'll have to settle for this. Still lots of colour, but not quite as vivid as they were a week ago.

    Fall colors in the US and Canada are the best I've seen. Sure a nice picture even if late. Looks great to me, now carve that scene.

        One of my favorite things has always been Gods fall color palette! I have dreamed about starting in Main in early fall and follow the color changes down into Georgia. Have not made it yet but hoping one day. Thanks for sharing Soggy.

          I miss the colors of my childhood in CO. Where we live now, yellow seems to be the color

            images (3).jpgWe do not have fall here...so appreciate the photos. Only one tree here out of thousands loses its leaves in the fall and they are grey. Your photos remind me of my childhood and jumping into the falling leaves. Plus... eating hot caramelized popcorn and drinking hot cider on the neighbor's patio.

              Here at 53N, it's about the end of September sees most broad leaf things colored up. Mostly yellows, a few pinks, oranges reds and purples. Douglas maples are wild colors but a week and that's over.
              Snow on the peaks up top, the elk bulls are not starting to bugle yet. Bull moose wont' be calling the girls for another month.
              The Ruffed, Franklin's and Dusky grouse are out with their chicks to graze on the usual monster crop of wild blueberries. End of October is better for putting chickens on the table.

              These trees are mostly some sort of aspens. Mid-October, up above the Fraser river.
              People are stuck, living with this view every day. Hard life.

                In south Louisiana, our fall colors are mostly shades of green! I do love the fall colors of colder climes, and it's a treat to head for the Smoky Mountains as we try to do each year...but it's a crap shoot as to timing. We like to reserve cabins there but have to do it so very far in advance that we never know if we'll hit the peak. Last trip in 2019 we were weeks early. Bought my first carving tools there long ago from Smoky Mountain Woodcarvers in Wears Valley.

                  Same here in West Florida.... We have two colors on our trees in the Fall, dead brown or green. That's why I built a cabin up in east Tennessee about 30-miles south of the Great Smoky National Park. Back in the years while we were still building and I was still working it was only for two weeks at a time and like you, seeing the colors was hit and miss. But after I retired and we'd go up there for two months of the time it was almost guaranteed that Mother nature would put on her display while we were there. Also like you SMWC's in Townsend was where I bought my first carving tools. It was like being a kid in a candy store. I wanted one of everything whether I needed it or not!

                    Wow, Eddy, what a blessing to spend two months at your cabin! We usually only stay a week at a time before my wife gets antsy to go home...of course, my dog Charlie agrees with her...neighborhood squirrels are probably up to no good without him to keep them in line!
