The power outage Saturday night-Sunday morning put me seriously behind schedule in my photo processing, so I'm offering up another general fall shot, rather than rush out a Fall Color Primer poster for sugar maples. Those trees deserve my best efforts.
Cemeteries offer a park-like setting in which trees such as these can reach their full potential, both in terms of size and shape, but in terms of fall color, where at least large portions of their foliage get generous amounts of sunshine. Also, it's easy to walk around and view the trees from all angles, and find the best light for showing them off.
From left to right (front to back):
1) dark red, white oak (Quercus alba)
2) mixed yellow/orange/red, sugar maple (Acer saccharum)
3) mixed green/yellow, unidentified maple, possibly Norway maple (A. platanoides)
5) yellow, sugar maple
6) light reddish brown, towering up behind the latter two maple trees, Northern pin oak

Today is another day when I'll be away from home most of the day, and will leave comments this evening, once I'm back.
