Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge: Red

Red comes in a close second behind yellow as one of my favorite shades of autumn.  I think of brilliant red maple leaves and bright red berries, such as the ones I’ve captured in the pictures below.  This trio was hanging out together on the maple tree in my backyard:

I shot these red berries in a light rain which just served to intensify their color:

While hiking a trail in Tahquamenon Falls State Park in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I spotted this red leaf trapped in the Tahquamenon River.  Its’ vibrant color stood out from the browns and golds of the riverbank:

There’s lots more autumn red to be found at:

  1. Oh my! I love that second photo. And you’re right, rain tends to intensify color. 🙂
    Thanks for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I hope you’ll be back again on Friday when we move on to our new theme, purple. Have a great day! 🙂
