Maple and Birch Wood

A woodland scene with green low foliage in the foreground, then young trees, some white and black birch, some darker unknown ones over the whole image. The leaves are very red on the birch trees on the left side, with some pink, orange and yellow ones further into the wood..
Maple and Birch Wood

Hello friends. I know what you might be thinking: “It’s November, it’s Nova Scotia and Ellie hasn’t yet made a post showing our lovely autumn leaves.” There’s a good reason for that, though. This year has not been the greatest for showy displays. That being the case, I have found this lovely one from a few years ago. This is a woodland not far from here, but you won’t find it easily. It’s reached by a dirt road that looks as if it’s going nowhere interesting. Then, you find it, a place where eagles congregate and, no doubt, foxes, possibly coyotes and certainly raccoons rear their young in as much safety as their world provides. The undergrowth is thick and dense and, quite suddenly you come across a clearing with these gorgeous birch trees and glimpses of colour deeper in, should you decide to penetrate the forest. I hope this satisfies your craving for fall colours, but, if this isn’t enough…. The landscape gallery featuring this photo is here and there you’ll see lots more photographs of fall colours.

There is a gallery of Autumn Colours and Rainbow or another, Fall Colour 2021 with some really lovely scenes you can visit to give you more fall landscapes.

  1. Hi Ellie and back from my jaunt and well they are definitely not Aussie Gum trees …

    Taking forever to download here so maybe a good head wind … Gorgeous colours that are not here in Brisbane either.

    1. Welcome home, stranger! I hope your trip was good.
      The colours were good (still are in places) but I’m afraid we already saw some of the white stuff today. It didn’t stick, but it won’t be long.
      Thanks for checking in.

    1. Well, truth be told, Jim, I’m not sure even how to describe where it is to Linda, who has asked me to tell her so she can go there. But I could take her there, so it’s not a secret among friends.
      Thanks Jim.

  2. Lovely Ellie. All the different colours mingled together make a beautiful contrast. You will have to let me know were it is so I can take a stroll. ❤️

    1. I will have to find it again and take note of the directions to share with you, Linda. We can meet there, perhaps. I’m glad you liked the photo, as it’s a favourite of mine. ❤️

  3. So fresh and beautiful! A marvelous symphony of colours! Made me think of a painting using pointilism as a technique!

    1. Thank you, Janet. Fall is a time of friendship and walks in the fallen leaves, I think. For ne it brings back good memories I hope we share, from years ago.
