Fall Colours

Today was a much better day for viewing the fall colours, which are changing very fast.  But we started out by sorting out my old camera equipment, which hasn't seen much action for 8 months now.  I'm back to my favourite Nikon, and it has definite advantages compared to my iphone.

The trees in our own backyard have barely begun changing colour, just a tinge of yellow and a bit of orange.

But right out behind us in the golf course are two old Sugar Maples that are showing lots of bright red.

So we headed down Co. Rd.12 toward the valley.  Roads were lined with many yellow and orange Sugar Maples,

Along the way we passed several quilt barns, this quilt representing a chicken!

Soon we were headed down into the Beaver Valley.  Colourful trees extended up the slopes.

We took Lanktree Drive that extends up the slope beside Talisman, and found the best group of bright maples that we had seen.  This is what fall colour is all about.

Then we headed home, but grey clouds and rain dulled the colour a little.  Glad we got out for the drive;  it's such a short time period every fall it's all too easy to miss it.  I have to say that it's nice to be back to my big camera too!


  1. Your pictures are super wonderful, FG. And you're right: it's easy to miss the fall color unless you're on top of things, like you are Happy Thanksgiving! :-)

  2. Weather cooperated today for your fall foliage drive. Nice to have your favorite Nikon in your hands.

  3. A very colorful countryside.

  4. Can't wait 'til the trees down here are really changing. Glad to see you have your good camera back, even if it is a Nikon -- I prefer Canons myself.

  5. Beautiful colours. Our trees are just starting to turn. In the summer the island in front of us is all green. From a distance it's hard to tell where the maples are. Now they pop out along all the creeks. Love this time of year, and my marigolds are still blooming to add to the colour. - Margy

  6. The camera still seems to be working well - the autumn colours look wonderful.

  7. Glad to see you using your camera equipment again. I marvel at the clarity of Smart phone photos but they are very limiting as to what they can do and for me, awkward to handle.. One really needs to get their eye into a viewfinder for true and 'steady' composition. Keep up those day trips and great photos.

  8. Wonderful pictures , do love the fall colours.

  9. Wow, you're a travelin' madman now, huh. A little relief from being penned in, I'm sure.

  10. The Nikon camera will give you different pictures than your phone but all turn out good. for me it is handy in case I forget the camera.
    I can't stop taking fall colour pictures, so beautiful!
    btw, Bill sent an email to your uoguelph address, in case you haven't checked.

  11. The maples in my back 40 have been spectacular this year. Sadly we have had some serious wind here the past few days and the poor trees have taken a beating. They are all looking pretty droopy and sort of bare now. It's too early for this.

  12. The Beaver Valley shots particularly stand out!

  13. I'm looking forward to when Autumn comes around here again.

  14. Beautiful fall colors. We do no get those down here in Texas. Thanks for sharing your color!
