In Search of Fall Foliage

fall foliage 2013
The other day I went out in search of fall foliage. I found the trees above – not bad, but not great. Some of what might be thought of as autumn leaves turning are just leaves turning brown.

Then I was parked by this maple tree as I waited to pick up my daughter from school. I photographed the trees above with my Samsung Galaxy 4.

Yesterday I photographed my neighbor’s burning bush, as the colors have started to turn red.

Do you have leaves turning colors where you live? I’ve learned from friends that it is not cold enough in Israel for fall foliage, but a friend who lives in Israel is visiting Greece, and there she photographed some leaves that had turned yellow. I grew up in New England, and I used to pick up a variety of colored leaves on the street at this time of year. Little did I know that this only happens in certain parts of the world.
