Maple trees turning to their natural colours. I am still wheelchair bound but a bit more agile so I can get out even in this crisp fall weather. Good fortune has these American Maple trees very close by.

Hello Bob,

Magical time of year, it is! That splash of blue sky & bg pines really bring out the yellowish golden in this vibrant composition. My only complaint is that this season is all too fleeting .... luckily we can all e-gaze vicariously & to our heart's content through formats such as this.



Ciao Bob, nice see you again on TN, nice composition, splendid light and wonderful autumnal colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hallo Bob,
a very beautiful image that emphasizes the change of season and the beginning of autumnal colours, very good sharpness and marvellous colour tones
Have a good weekend

Hello Bob,
It's always nice to see a post from you. A beautiful fall shot, showing these Maples just as they are starting to turn colors. Nicely framed with perfect contrast and exposure.
I was up in your old neck of the woods the other day, and the colors are really starting to come out. It's been rainy and windy the last few days, so many have already fallen to the ground.

Bonjour Bob,
De superbes couleurs, qui évoquent déjà l'automne, générées par une lumière bien maîtrisée et bien exploitée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Robert,
nice colours.
Very good composition. Great sharpness.
Artistic shot.
Have a nice Sunday,
