Sunset Through Maples/ Sky Watch

Looking over a farmer's field at sunset. Our trees still have leaves...but not for long. Doesn't the air feel chilly?

YEGTG, I love the way the still hanging leaves are silhouetted against that gorgeous blue sky. terrific cloud structure in the background. Love the shot...

I can understand you not being a fan of tornadoes. I am definitely not a fan of the destruction.

Maple leaves almost look like silhouette cut outs against those beautiful sunset colours! Gorgeous!

Now that is my kind of photo. We don't have that many maples here but I do appreciate them. Great sky.

I love that shot. It's nice seeing the end of the leaves and I'm so happy to have cooler weather starting where I live. I like all times of years but this is a great time where we can enjoy the leaves for one last hooray.

Love the way you used the leaves to frame your shot. And the pictures in the previous post are such perfect views of fall. I had to scrape my car window two mornings this week. Definitely a chill in the air.
