Just for fun....

I was attracted to these three bands of color and thought there must be a flag that is similar. Well the flag of Cameroon has green, red and yellow vertical stripes. It also has a central yellow star, but this is close. : )

The yellow is quaking aspen. The red is vine maple, and the green I think is douglas fir but I could be wrong.

Hi Evelynn

If i managed to see a vertical flag in your other shot, here everyone can :) A very well spotted scene and a well taken photo.
Very beautiful colors here...i really like the way they contrast with each other. A big plus in mu opinion is represented by the very different shapes of the leaves that make the 3 colors...they are really completely opposite and add to the separation of the frame in the 3 thirds.
I mush say i'm a bit envious of you north-Americans...your trees have such amazing reds there in the autumn. We have lovely yellows here, just like yours, but your reds are absolutely gorgeous!

Bravo and TFS

I get it!! I have that same combination here but all three were Maples in different types and different times of change...but attaching it to a national colour is original..I had never thunk of it..Pretty cool and neatly done..

Hello Evelynn,
Nice 'flag'...almost the flag of Belgium.
Very nice autumn photo.

Hi Evelynn,
That is a fun shot. You've found a great tricolore. It is funny to see that nature can somethimes come up with these colorful and wonderful patterns.

Hi Evelynn!

I wasn't present very often on TN during the last days and weeks, and I'm impressed by the quality of your last postings. You present us a delightful series of autumnal pictures. I have chosen this one for my critique because I like the idea of the three colour stripes very much, although it's not important for me if they are a symbol of any kind. For me, they are just beautiful to look at. Your picture also remembres me a competiton of my photo club with the theme "three colours". You would have done well at this competiton!

Kind regards


Hello Evelynn

This is a wonderful display of colour and texture.
Excellent focus and detail.
I have always loved the sound of the aspen leaves as the flutter in the wind,and the splash of red from that acer is super.
Well seen and composed for us.
