This fall we have been experiencing the most colourful and vivid fall shades we seen in a number of years. Having had two harsh frosts may have contributed to this unusual condition. Because of the lack of maples here, we typically see only the yellows of birch, poplar and tamarack mixed with the greens of pine, spruce and cedar. Any orange and red is usually proved by low berry bushes in the undergrowth. This season, the random maple is gloriously evident. Even a dreary day like the day these photos were taken, can be aglow.
