WordPress Photo Challenge: Fall

It might be Fall on the calendar, but today it went up to 23 degrees here in the Lower Fraser Valley of BC.  With the humidity, which is ridiculous right now, it feels like 29 degrees.  That’s about 88 degrees for my American friends.  Honestly, I could go for some of the cool crispness that normally accompanies Fall around here.  I felt that for this week’s Photo Challenge a close-up of a decaying Maple leaf would serve to fit the topic:  Fall.

Now, if only the weather would cooperate.

  1. thanks for sharing, now i know not all maple leaves are red. Does it only turn red during fall season or there are really some that are naturally red? Anyways, thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Well, there are “red” maples, like the Ornamental Maples or Japanese Maples, but most maples up here range from deep greens to light greens to yellowy greens. In Fall, they definitely turn red, but also orange and yellow. Thanks for stopping by.

      • You’re welcome. Thanks for the info, now I know the variation of maple leaves as I’ve always thought they are all red as symbolized by your flag..

        Have a great day! 🙂

  2. Mother nature has it’s own agenda, not bound by a calendar. Nice closeup photo of the leaf.

  3. Love the detail with the promise of Fall. Hope it gets to you soon, or perhaps you are enjoying the bonus of the Indian Summer!

    • Maybe, but I’m sure I don’t want it. I like the coolness, the crispness, the freshness of Fall.
