Fall Splendor in Western New York

Shades of orange blaze on this tree in a neighbor's yard.

New York State is one of the many that has the luxury of having beautiful and colorful changes in the Fall.  I'd like to share with you, some of the beauty.

It's not uncommon for the smaller trees and plants to begin changing colors before the surrounding, taller trees...

Greens make way for shades of pink
Even weeds get into the swing of things, changing their green for colors of purple, reds and yellows...


Even weeds are alight with color
These shrubs begin with a gorgeous shade of pink...
 
Pretty in pink
The hillsides are a little longer in changing colors...
a farm framed by a changing landscape
Berries are especially pretty to photograph...


ripened berries that the birds will enjoy
The hillside is beginning to show its Fall splendor...


It's begun...
Leaves close-up are a special sight...


Some leaves have turned...
Even if they have not begun to lose their green coloring...


and some are only just beginning
A picture worth framing...this is Americana...


pretty enough to fram
And yet another...


a farmer's dream...
Colors abound on this hillside...


yellows, gold,s oranges and reds...
These elderberries are growing off a guide-wire...easy picking for the birds...


elderberries ready to eat
Coons and deer are invited to dine on these ears of corn...


ears of corn tempting the wildlife  

even on a dreary day, the colors are bright
Rainy days doesn't hinder the beauty (above)...and cornfields blow in the breeze (below)...

Deer are now moving as hunting season is open...enjoying a late afternoon meal...


Deer out to dine, but being very cautious

Fall is probably the most beautiful time of year here in the Northeastern part of the USA.

Thanks for stopping by!
