Welcoming Fall

The trunk of this Japanese Maple tree welcomes the leaves of Fall after a rain

Each year, as Fall arrives, the Japanese Maple tree in front of our home goes through the most wonderful color changes. This year we were also lucky to have some rain and it brightened the colors of the leaves and the moss on the trunk of the tree. There were many good shots to take by this tree. This is the first of several I’ll be posting over the next few weeks. Be sure to click on the image to enlarge it.

Note: All leaves in this series of images fell naturally and were not moved or placed where I photographed them.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF17-40mm f/4L lens, 1/6 sec at f/4, ISO 100, shooting on a tripod.

  1. When we lived in northern Idaho we had a red maple in our front yard that also was a delight. The color changes it went through were exquisite, and sometimes there was an early snow to highlight the last of the color changes. I love the shape of maple leaves and this one is so perfect. Beautiful. I look forward to seeing the rest.
