Colors of Autumn

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 October 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Colors of autumn captured last year at the Green Belt Forest Preserve in Waukegan, Illinois. This year's autumn colors quickly passed before I was able to capture them.

Photo taken October 2, 2012.

Superb shot Steve, I think I'll have the same problem here, after such a long lasting and late summer the colours have only just appeared, but alas a huge storm brewing for Monday may well rip every leaf from every tree!
