Warm Orange Foliage

This rich, bright autumn foliage was on a street tree out on the edge of town with the late afternoon sun intensifying the beautiful orange-pumpkin colour of the leaves. The tree was already well past its best, many leaves already fallen. These two photos where I zoomed in on the most striking foliage were the ones I liked the best. They’re unedited, all I did was resize them for the blog. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. 05 May 2021.

  1. Beautiful photos! I have a framed print of a favorite quote that must be shared : “Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.” – Stanley Horowitz poem first printed in the November 1983 issue of Reader’s Digest. Thank-you!

  2. There’s something very comforting about the colours of the leaves – those deep yellows and oranges. They suggest pure sunshine and warmth. Looks like a nice day to be out and about! 🙂
