Photo of the Week: Fall, in full color

The weather has finally taken a serious turn for fall. When I photographed this brilliant Japanese Maple, the backlighting made it seem like the tree was on fire. Time to break out the cozy clothes and fill the tank for the fireplace….

Photo of the Week: Fall, At Last!




The weather is finally cooling down, even for us in the south, and the trees are starting to turn. Some of the most dramatic trees in Atlanta are the Ginkos, which turn sunshine yellow and then drop their leaves all at once, like a housewife with an armful of packages. This photo is from last fall, when the Ginkos by my old house put on a spectacular show.
