I almost missed this week’s prompt for Festival of Leaves! I was immediately reminded of this photo that I took last week for exactly that reason: the color on the tree behind the tall yellow one was spotty! Some leaves were still green, but most had turned various shades of orange or red.
Here are a couple more I took on the same day:
This one looks “spotty” but I think it might be the effect of the late afternoon sunlight.
Head over to Dawn’s Festival of Leaves if you would like to participate! She includes some interesting links, including a “fall foliage prediction map” which not only shows which areas are at peak color according to different dates, but it also contains information about why leaves change color!
These photos were taken on October 29 in my neighborhood of Des Plaines, IL, using my Samsung Galaxy S7 cellphone camera.
