The Russets










“Their gorgeous tints are gone, as if the autumnal rains had washed them out. Orange, yellow, and scarlet, all are changed to one melancholy russet hue.... There is a melancholy and continual roar in the tops of the tall pines.... It is the funeral anthem of the dying year.”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Outstanding colors. We didn't get that kind of a fall this year. You took some great shots of good fall trees.

I love this rich and warm color. We have one particular tree in town, that turns that color and one of our bus drivers used to say if he ever found a dress in that color, he would buy it for his wife.
