Autumn Scenes

Almost hate to say it but Autumn is just around the corner. However it's a great time of year for artists. I'm eagerly anticipating the coming weeks of beautiful colors. I found these cranberries today, they might be just a bit ahead of their usual ripening time, maybe not. It was pretty warm here today and the woods were filled with the lovely aroma of these berries. They make great subjects to photograph too, their red colors against the green background of the forest. And they can glisten in the sun, sometimes they're almost transparent.
Post any autumn images, preferably taken this year if fall has arrived in your area.

Why don't you get fall there Mike? We have one every fall.
The leaves are just about to turn here, another week and it will really start to show. Lots of trees have turned kind of ugly yellow like they froze, I think maybe because of too much rain.

 

We don't experience a true 'autumn' in South Texas -- it was nearly 100F, today. November is more likely to feel Fall-like, but then the leaves just turn brown. Ah, well . . .

There's a state protected area of maple trees and hiking trails located about 75 miles from my front door, in the Texas Hill Country. The autumn colors are fleeting and don't happen every year, but some years offer intense color for a run of days.

This photo may look like Autumn, but temps were in the 90's, and felt anything but.

A wee bit early for peak fall colors in the U.S., but here's from last time:

I thought cranberries grew on low slung bushes in bogs.

These are all autumn photos from last year in upstate NY.

usually we do. but last year nothing changed. it was green, we had a terrible ice storm that knocked down many trees. because the leaves never fell that fall. then we had a warm winter. i'm thinking it will be better this time around.

There are different varieties of cranberries. Around here they grow on moderate sized bushes, almost like willow trees. They can look very stunning in the forest in autumn. We don't have too many trees here that turn red in autumn, cranberries are one of them.

We always get at least three weeks of lovely colors here, then wind takes care of the leaves, but mostly yellow colors, not like the reds in the east.

This is from last year and is very typical of autumn here, mostly yellow and some smaller shrubs turn red, and of course the evergreens contrast nicely with the autumn colors. Two or three weeks and it will look like this...

I had a short but lovely hike yesterday, very pleasant early autumn day, the colors are jsut coming out here, although a lot of the trees have just turned brown as from frost - I think it's maybe too much rain this summer.
These chokecherry bushes make lovely photos, anyone ever eaten them then you know how they get their name although they're sweet to begin with, after that however....
My father used to make jelly from them, and maybe wine, or perhaps that was saskatoon wine I forget..

Our leaves won't change here in Eastern South Carolina for many weeks. Here are two of my images from last autumn. I took these last November.

I sure hope everyone has a wonderful autumn season. Fingers crossed the summer heat and dryness doesn't affect the trees. My mom said one of her maples is already turning on one side, and it's usually one of the last to change. It's spring here, so I'll just have to enjoy all the beautiful autumn posts. :)

Some very lovely fall images. This is my favorite time of the year up in the Colorado high country. Perfect weather and aspens turning golden. These were taken last year and all are within blocks from where I live.

Beautiful images everyone, thanks for posting. There's nothing finer than a warm autumn day, much better than 90 above in July, almost better than an early spring day and hands down better than any day in winter.

Here's our river in mid-september, lots of green yet and you can see some of the poplars along the river have turned brown, they should have been yellow in a week or two, at which time this image would be filled with the lovely yellow of the poplars.

Does anyone think I should edit out that glare in front? I already removed a jet trail, a building in the lower right and some power poles on the horizon. I debated taking out that black bridge in the distant right - you can see it better with the full resolution preview.

Been trying a few leaf macros... mostly hand held and no tripod, in the sunlight, with a reversed 50mm 1.8 on a reversing ring, holding a hood on the end. Pillow for elbows and crouched down on my 3rd floor, apartment, concrete, porch slab. Convenient to mess around at least.

The fall colors here usually peak around the middle of October, which is approaching. The images here are from last October.

Many fine images everyone.

I took this yesterday in east-central Alberta, the drought has been very bad the last decade, I think 70% of the trees have died off there.

Since we generally do not have fall in Florida, I have to rely on older images. These were taken last December. Right now its still in the high 80s here.

I'd be jumping the gun by at least a month in this area of the country (central Maryland), if I were to post this year's "Fall" colors but they would pretty much look the same as any previous Fall seasons except that maybe I've improved a little as a photographer over that period of time. We can only hope! With that said, I'll only post one shot for the thread for now.

Life's taken me back to Upstate New York for a bit which has its ups and downs, but does allow me to photograph scenes like that that I'd never get in Mississippi.
