Fall Colors

This weekend has been perfect autumn weather with blue skies and beautiful colors on the trees.  Here are some of the pretty colors I found in the backyard and beyond..

A kaleidoscope of colors on an oak leaf:

Vivid dogwoods against the blue sky:

Focusing on a single dogwood leaf- such amazing colors:

Then there are the yellows, like this American beech:

Looking up through the layer of leaves:

Thought it looked nifty to blur the leaves into a jumble of color:

Back into focus is a view of the woods and the bird feeder through the leaves:

And finally, we took the canoe to the Catawba River and here's Domino checking out the autumn leaves on the bank:

There is such beauty in every season, but autumn wins for colors.. well, until spring flowers come!  I suppose the lesson is to enjoy of the beauty of the moment.
