Fall Colors – Picture Fall, day 25

When the day for this prompt, which I was sure was coming eventually, showed up, I was hoping it would have been one of the lovely, sunshiney days we’ve had this month.  I was also hoping it would have been a day when I had time to take the dogs for a walk in the woods or up the small, local mountain.  But it came today, on a dreary, cloudy day – fall colors.  Here in New England, the landscape is kind of known for fall colors, although it has been an odd year for them for sure.  Some trees seemed to go wild with color quite early, while others are still holding back – at least in this part of New England.  I actually have a few days, usually in November, when it seems my entire backyard has turned yellow.  Hasn’t happened yet, didn’t go early like virtually every other plant that I grow did this year.   I did the best that I could to show some fall colors today, with a look up my street:


(That’s my driveway with the tan Suburban parked in it)  I chose this shot because I noticed my little street is actually showing almost all the colors of the rainbow, with the exception of blue, at this moment.  Although not in perfect order, we have orange at the top of the street, followed by red, yellow, green and purple (ish).  Speaking of rainbows, another made an appearance the other day, and I haven’t had a chance to share it, so here you go.



  1. Gorgeous rainbow shot! What day was that? I missed it. ):

    • It was last Thursday, the 21st. Meghan texted me from the dance studio and said “there’s a rainbow outside, go outside and take a picture!” So I did! 🙂

  2. I can’t even get Miss Sadie and the Cowboy to sit reliably and you manage to train a rainbow to curve down past a glowing tree. I am impressed. (I like the stubborn green tree too!)

    • It was terribly kind for the rainbow to comply like that, wasn’t it? 😉

  3. Lovely!

    It’s nice to be able to see a rainbow somewhere. I haven’t seen one in the area where I live for a while.

  4. Love the rainbow on your street and the one in the sky! I took some pictures of a fantastic double rainbow over Keweenaw Bay this summer – I shall have to revisit those as I don’t think I ever printed them?!?! Hmmm…

    • Thank you. We had a double rainbow earlier this month, though I missed getting a picture of it. I bet the rainbow over the bay was lovely.

  5. They’re both gorgeous shots. No rainbows and no fall colors in sight around here 😦 The wind is going to blow all the leaves off the trees while they’re still green and well go from green straight to bare.

    • Thanks.
      Do the trees change color at all in the south?

  6. You have your eyes with you Karen. The composition with the tree and the rainbow is ‘Right in the eye’ as we say in Denmark.
    Beautiful photos.

    • Interesting sayings, Carsten! And thank you – I’m glad you liked the shots!
