Below the Canopy

After weeks of lackluster fall colors, the final few glorious autumn days gifted us with a brilliant palette of colors.

Wochenlang waren die Herbstfarben langweiling und glanzlos. Aber die letzten paar herrlichen Herbsttage beschenkten uns mit einer brillanten Farbenpalette.

I like nothing more than standing below the tree canopy when sunlight sets the leaves ablaze. Whether the tree bathes me in a singular color,

Ich liebe es unter dem Blätterdach zu stehen, wenn das Sonnenlicht die Blätter anzündet. Ob der Baum mich in eine einzige Farbe badet,

or shows off a variety of different colors

oder mit vielen verschiedenen Farben protzt

really doesn’t matter. I like them all.

ist mir gleichgültig. Mir gefällt alles.

My eye is drawn to shape and color

Mein Auge wird von Form und Farbe angezogen

And who can resist a tree that drops its gold seductively all over the place?

Und wer kann schon einem Baum widerstehen, der sein Gold verführerisch hinfallen lässt?

    I’ve not seen much color in my area yet, I live in Central CA. So your show is a nice glimpse into the beauty of autumn. Thanks.

    British native trees, on the whole, don’t go in for big colourful shows, so it’s lovely to share yours, Annette.

    Your photos evoke two primary responses: admiration and envy. Sigh. Even traveling to see fall foliage isn’t a guarantee. I have several friends who ried that this year, and arrived either too early, or two late. Thanks for these glimpses of being there at just the right time!

  9. Annette, this is just what I needed to see today. I miss the fall colors so much. Gorgeous. We just returned from a trip to Guatemala and I bought so much fabric with these colors in them. I am definitely a fall color kind of gal.

    Such amazing colours! Here the leaves are now long gone and the shivering trees are waiting for their blanket of snow.
