Autumn Colour

Heading north to Muskola

This week's Alphabe-Thursday challenge is not a letter in the alphabet. Nope, this week our assignment is to post autumn colour.

Some of Ontario's best colour is in Muskoka - part of Ontario's Cottage Country - which is halfway between the Equator and the North Pole (I kid you not) so reds and oranges have already given way to yellows and bare branches.

The red bulb marks Bracebridge on latitude 45°N

Rosseau River

But fear not! We chose a delightful, bright sunny day in early October for our road trip/ photo shoot.

One of the very few things I miss about Ontario is the colour in the fall. Nice photos!

Very pretty, EG. I will post some fall color on Friday. It has been weak so far.

The potter was using a foot pedal to turn the wheel.

Lowell said...

Okay, seeing as how it gets really cold up there for a long, long time during the winter and all the trees are bare and your wee toes freeze off, I think it's only fair that you get to enjoy this kind of beautiful scenery for a few weeks and do appreciate your sharing it with us!

I saw mums today at Lowe's that would qualify for autumn color. Our leaves have not started turning yet! It was 85 degrees two days ago but yesterday it turned cool and fall is finally in the air.

How beautiful! I miss those vibrant colours. Years ago I spent a fall weekend at Camp Tapawingo in Parry Sound - I remember the colour of the leaves and the smell from wood fires. Lovely memories!

The autumn colors in western Canada are mostly aspens, but their yellow splendor always excites me. Great photos!!
