Drenched by gold and crimson drops!

Great Smoky Mountains by Richard WeisserDrenched by gold and crimson drops
From high upon the mountain tops,
Sweet feathered, wispy, blazing strains
Deluge the hills with Autumn’s rains!

        (R Weisser 2013)

It’s the middle of October, and the evidence of Autumn is working its way South.

I love the leaf season for so many reasons. I love the fleeting nature of it. I love the way it varies from year to year and place to place.

There are so many variables that affect the changing of leaf color that’s it hard to predict exactly where and when the “best” leaves will be.

I am often asked: “when is the best time to see the leaves?”

The fact is, there is no clearly defined answer. You have to go out and find them.

That’s part of the fun. It’s both a race and a treasure hunt all rolled into one!

 

And that’s why I love it!

Hi Richard, you captured such beautiful fall colors!  It's true, the colors are fleeting and one particular group of trees can be splendid while down the road they are already "done"... Hope you have a great Sunday!
