Here in central Indiana, the trees changed colors slowly and dropped their leaves late. It made autumn seem to last a good long time. I know that autumn lasts the same amount of time every year regardless of the trees! But when the trees are bare, to me that’s when winter begins.

We had some good color this year, with strong reds and oranges abounding. I didn’t make a huge number of photos — some of them are on the roll of Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 sitting here on my desk needing to be sent off for processing — but here are some that show our color this year.

    Fall is my favorite time of year, and your photos capture some of the reasons. Wonderful, Jim.

    Lovely. And you are correct, vibrant trees make the fall. Once those leaves are gone, it’s a quick slide into winter!

    Wow look at those colors! Boy those Apple iphone shots are pretty good too. It’s amazing to me how cell phone cameras are getting just as good as big cameras with all the bells and whistles.

      Only thing about the iPhone shots is that at full size everything is mottled and ill defined. The real cameras have better definition!

        Yes that is very true!

    Every year seems to be a little different – last autumn we were in lockdown so I could not go out with the camera. Hopefully this year :)
