Searching for Autumn

It was an opportunity to visit the Canadian Maritimes and the U.S. northeast during October... and the first thought... "fall colours". Our route was scheduled by research into the best leaf colours by historical data and we had two cameras just in case, lots of memory space and much enthusiasm. Instead, we had temperatures in the mid-80s (f) in the U.S. and mid-20s (c) in the Maritimes. Most of the leaves went from green to dry-green or pale-yellow and falling as the heat wore on, but in a few areas on the verges of lakes and swamps, there were the occasional brilliant colours we expect from this part of the world. Let's only hope that this is not what we can expect from global warming, but an anomaly caused by the dry summers of recent years. Otherwise, the brilliant reds, golds and oranges of the past will only be remembered in photographs.
Autumn Splendor.
