I'm waiting for the bright red colours of the Sugar Maples, but in the meantime we've got some brilliant blue skies, warm temperatures and perfect September weather for tidying up the garden and finishing the last fall projects. And I've been struck by the brilliance of the trees that are turning yellow around here.
Some of the trees around here actually look fluorescent against the bright blue skies - sorry about the hydro pole in this one, but I can't get spot remover to work properly.
This was the tree in our own backyard that got me noticing the yellow leaves - mostly on the White Ash like this one. I was cleaning up the garden today, and when I passed this tree beyond the compost pile I looked up and it really did look fluorescent yellow. The picture doesn't do it justice.
Perhaps this one captures the colour a bit better.
And this one illustrates why you should break the rule about never shooting into the light, especially when trying to capture the fall colour.

And this is more like what I'm looking forward to in a week or so - colours are changing very fast now, so I'll be back with more next week.
