It’s been a while since my last installment of this Photo Project. Life got busy and the trees, well, they stayed green all summer!
The scene outside my window didn’t change much, but I think some of the settings on my camera may have been altered. (Oops!) I went on vacation, probably tweaked some settings and then couldn’t remember the original ones. As a result, the color differences in the August and September photos above may be technical and not physical. Oh, well! Live and learn.
In October, I dare say that the subtle foliage changes were a bit disappointing. The maple tree on the left side of this view usually explodes in a brilliant red every autumn. But I don’t think it ever fully recovered from that worm attack in the spring.
Its ragged leaves managed a rusty red, while the trees just to the right of my chosen view showed off their own magic!
But, back to the scene I chose to observe…
From mid-October until the last week of the month, the colors morphed. (Pardon my lens hood crowding the corners!)
Then, on October 29th, it happened: FALL!!!
As the calendar turned to November, the wind took more and more leaves down, stripping most of the trees bare.
The end of the year brings with it the promise of trees covered in snow and ice. I’ll keep shooting and wrap up this project in January 2016, bringing it full circle from the blizzard of January 27, 2015 seen in my first Photo Project entry.
In the meantime, I’ve got some leaves to rake…
