Autumn arrives

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 1 March 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Canberra has its four distinct seasons – of which autumn is the best. Our deciduous street trees colour beautifully. In my own garden
I have been watching for signs of autumn’s arrival; and I found it here with the first claret coloured leaves on this ornamental grape vine.

Hello, I'm back! :)

I guess spring is almost here then.
But today is rather autumnal in London though...
Wet and gloomy!

wonderful autumn colours and signs of autumn weather in a very appealing composition! i like the side-by-side of green and red (almost a political statement, but it's ST after all!). here, we are desperately waiting for signs of spring ...

ps - Although there are several images online of Vermont's Mount Mansfield, I think I have an image that better shows why I see a similarity...after viewing the "online" shots, there is a vague similarity but not the one I had in my mind's eye - we travel to Vermont all the time to visit our daughter and her family and in my mind I can see Mansfield and the similarity, although perhaps not striking, is there -at least in my opinion,...I'll find it and send it sir ;-)

Autumn for you but spring for us up north. The colours and textures are beautifully enhanced by the raindrops on the leaves. Well see Stephen!

It always fascinates me how the size of our planet makes for opposite seasons, and so this sumptuous photograph pleases my wintry eye very much!

Pour nous encore installés en hiver, ça nous étonne un peu de voir ces couleurs superbes de l'automne! A moi, elles évoquent le drapeau national rouge avec une étoile verte !
Superbe image haute en couleur et fraîche !

Ah, the harbinger of fall. In my yard and in forests, the first thing to turn color is the vine maple. It begins turning red in August. That's way too early. ;–)
