Photo is an actual shot of autumn leaves at their peak colors. In this picture there are several maples, oaks, sassafras and even a couple of sycamores. There are also a couple of scrub willows at far right foreground with green leaves.

Thumb of 2015-10-24/TBGDN/702675

I am editing to add part of the actual picture the banner was taken from. The original was over 3200 pixels wide, but I had to crop & shrink it down to 1000 for the PC. It was taken on a country road across a field of winter wheat. This was back on October 22 when the leaves were at peak color. Notice the milkweed pods and Queen Anne's Lace in the fence row? Good for the butterflies!

One more picture from that scene. Big puffy clouds kept moving over the sunlight so this one was a little dark. Sunlight makes all the difference on autumn leaves.

Beautiful fall foliage, Leon I tip my hat to you.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

Beautiful banner. DH took me all the waytoWisconsin to see the fall leaves a few weeks ago. We were a week too early. Maybe we can catch 'em next year.

Your photo is gorgeous!

A perfect fit for the banner, the season while listening to the song "Autumn Leaves". Triple crown winner, Leon!

Thanks everyone for your generous comments, acorns & thumbs. I leave you with a photo of one of my favorite places.
It has lots of trees, goldenrod and a stream.

Sandi, I can relate to the trip to Wisconsin. A few years ago we went with our motor home group all the way from Arkansas to the northeast to see the leaves and the same thing happened to us! There were a lot of other sights we took in too so the trip wasn't in vain. Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!
