Hi everyone! Welcome back to our Art In Nature series! Since it is fall and the leaves are busy changing colors and falling quickly from the trees, it just seemed natural to take a look at a couple different leaves today. The top featured image is a nice yellow leaf from the black walnut in the front yard, sitting on top of many from the same tree that have already turned brown. It really stood out nicely being so bright and it’s veins showing equally nice.
Then this next leaf above, another walnut leaf from the same tree but along with the bright yellow it has a nice design of brown centering in the leaf. Often we just think of the leaves as either brightly colored, or dried up brown color. But there can be so many variations in between the two. Just from a quick look I picked out 5 quite distinct variations in those walnut leaves.
Then in this photo above we have a large tooth aspen leaf. This tree is also called big tooth aspen, American aspen and Canadian poplar. But large tooth aspen seems to be the most popular. Anyway, their leaves can be anywhere from bright yellow to fire orange to brilliant red. Around here they mostly seem to be yellow or light orange, but on years like this where the trees were stressed with a dry summer, the leaves have much more vivid colors. There are always so many different things to find when out walking, no matter where you live. Have a great day everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
