Autumn Colors

Victoria's autumn colors tend to be a bit muted because a large number of our deciduous trees are Garry Oaks. These don't turn glorious autumn shades of red and yellow but go directly to brown. However we do have some nice stands of other trees here and there. Above are some of the trees lining the Gorge at Banfield Park showing that autumn has definitely arrived in Victoria.

Very pretty. It's nice to be back in New England for the fall colours. Trees are finally starting to change here but the hurricane put a crimp in most of it.

Your colors are like ours... not so brilliant... although we occasionally have years when they are stunning... so far this year is a bit of a snooze. Love your shot!
