Autumn Beeches...


Regular visitors to this blog may recognize this group of beech trees, I posted pictures of the same group of trees earlier in the year, I have a winter version and a spring version posted. Like I mentioned the other day; typically during this time of year the water flow is real low so there would be barely a trickle behind these trees, I'm glad it isn't the case. Timing is everything, I took the photo last Friday and you can tell about half of the leaves have already dropped, we've had some windy days this week so today these trees are bare.

Coming from a place where the wind seems to never quit, that was the first thing that crossed my mind for this photo. It must have been a still day for this shot. It's just beautiful. Thanks John!

This is a very beautiful time of year there by you. Our trees do not really get these autumn colors, so I miss it but at least I can feast my eyes on lovely pictures like this.

Bare? Already? I guess it's really coming...we aren't at full color yet.

I love how you captured this one. The leave may be falling off but it makes for a more dramatic photo.

Absolutely beautiful! I love the water flowing behind the tree.

Maybe you can post all four seasons together! It's a lovely view at any time of year. Our leaves are dropping faster than they are turning color, but I hope to get out and find a bit of color this next week.

The beeches are doing very well this year. Beautiful yellows.

Really great, John.

I love the tenaciousness of beech trees and the way they hold their leaves so far into the winter season. (that makes also makes it much easier for me to identify them in the cold months!)

A lovely photograph of a lovely time of year. Thanks for posting it.

I wonder how you get any work done with so much beauty around you. I think I'd be out there just drinking it all in. As it is I'm getting quite tipsy sinking into your visual world.
