More color...

The weather was good and I had time, so I went back to capture a little more fall color.

The sun and a beautiful sugar maple tree.
This red maple still had some color.
I used wider lenses to capture more of the tree and I like how it turned out.
I really like the shadows as well as the branches and colorful leaves in this image.
By standing near the trunk and shooting up I was able to get a frame full of gold.
The yellow leaves look great against the blue sky.
As it got a little later in the morning I took a break under the maple tree. I left and ran a few errands and returned to see what I could do with the afternoon light.

Just in time....

I went out to find a little fall color.

As it turns out, I almost missed it. 
Most of the trees had already lost their leaves.
But not all of them. I found Japanese maple trees (top) still looking good, Some sugar maples (second) and oaks (above).
The weather was good, but it was a little windy. I had to wait for the leaves to stop moving before I could capture these images.
All and all it was a good morning. I spent a couple hours finding the color that was left and came away with some decent images.
