T/Alphabe-Thursday

 Colour in Algonquin Provincial Park

This week Alphabe-Thursday is celebrating the Letter and here T stands for TREES.

Yesterday, my husband and I spent the day in Algonquin Provincial Park where the trees have turned golds, oranges and reds.  The day started out
foggy...

Kilometre 12 inside the park


Oxtongue River

and ended overcast...but in between the sky was delightful, even turning blue at midday.

 Blue sky reflected in the river at lunchtime

I like the contrast of the colourful hardwood leaves with the dark green of the spruce and pine trees.

Reflections in the river on Opeongo Road

And of course I love the relections!

So, autumn really has come--at least in the north.

see you there! said...

Such colorful trees. I really like the misty fog photo, that would make a great watercolor.

Algonquin Provincial Park is the most incredible gift especially this time of year. Your photos captured its beauty perfectly. Thank you I was wondering how it was turning. Hug B

Lowell said...

We don't see this kind of color down here so thank you. Beautiful pictures all but that third one with the canoes resting on the misty water is superb. Frame it and hang it!

Hi again. To respond to your question. Yes, cardinals are very skittish. But it so happens we have a big bush just outside our kitchen window - a window they cannot see in!

Last night while eating dinner, we counted 9 cardinals and 1 dove along with two other smaller birds on or alongside of that bush! I can sit inside and take picture after picture and they never know it. :)

Oh these are wonderful. I had plans to be there in the northeast right about this time but plans changed. Do show more of what I am missing.

Karen said...

Oh boy, autumn in Algonquin! Beautiful, wish I was there.

Wow the colors are great, EG. Trees are turning here also but have had so much rain and wind the leaves are falling before turning. Darn it. Last year if I remember right was a gorgeous for color. MB

I love the misty shots, but the sun really shows off the colors. What a beautiful place and a gorgeous time of year.

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

It was worth it to see the fog in order for those beautiful colors to shine through later in the day!

Esther Joy said...

We often used to visit my family in Canada in early October and celebrate Canadian thanksgiving. The trees were beautiful on the way up there, but had usually reached their peak at my parents place by the time we arrived. Beautiful shots!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Gorgeous!! You captured their beautiful colors! The trees are just a wee bit starting to change.

Blessings & Aloha!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

GLORIOUS fall pics! Stunning ! Love them....you have captured so much of fall's beauty if not all of it here :)

Pondside said...

The images make my heart ache a little. The colours of fall are so much a part of my memory-heart-psyche and I miss them terribly. The shot of the canoes is a classic.

fredamans said...

Beautiful and vibrant colors already. Not too much here yet in Hamilton.

Jenny said...

This was a real treat for the letter "T"...
