Autumn Leaves Abstract

I'd like to use these photos to create paintings on canvas sometime but for now I'm putting the photos up. These were surprising to me. Some trick of the light (twilight filtered through the trees) and camera settings brought the color out in a dramatic way.

We drove up to Pinetop today in search of aspen trees. We didn't see any. We'll have to go up again later in the week and drive to a higher elevation, perhaps near Greer. These are oak leaves and it's a little disappointing. Fall really just arrived and it seemed like the temperature changed dramatically overnight. Just 2-3 weeks ago everything was green. Now the oak leaves are already getting brown and we only saw the color change this week.
