Autumn Color

I was out leaf peeping again this week while the leaves were still putting on a colorful display in my region. Some species have already shriveled away while others are still hanging on their branches, but just barely. I think that this may be the last week to get anymore photos. Our weather will be turning, with lots of rain and wind in the next few days. Whatever leaves are still hanging will most likely blow away. I put together another short photo show that lasts just a little over 2 minutes.  I have even more photos that I plan to put together in another post, soon. Enjoy!

Chrysanthemums in Bloom

The one flower I look forward to enjoying its blooms during the autumn season is the Chrysanthemum, commonly known as a Mum Flower. There are over a dozen types of chrysanthemums, each with their own distinctive characteristic. Here are a few photo images I took while visiting the Grand Floral Display at the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory, located in Tacoma, Washington. The floral display officially runs through November 24. I highly recommend viewing this most beautiful display of flowers.

Colorful Autumn Leaves

I went to one of my favorite gardens to photograph autumn leaf colors. It is peak leaf color time. In fact, there were so many leaves on the ground that I think I may have missed the right time to visit by about a week. Many branches were beginning to look a bit bare, but I still had a great time and captured lots of beautiful leaf color. My favorites were the Japanese Maple species. Again, here is a little photo show I put together and posted on YouTube.

Spooky, Autumn Trees

Once again, I was inspired to create a photo show of autumn images depicting the awesome, gnarly branches of Japanese Maple trees during the autumn season. Not only is their fiery colored leaves magnificent, but their gnarly branches twisting and turning at all different angles strike me as spectacular as well. They sort of give me the creeps and are a bit spooky this time of year! I hope you enjoy the photo show.
