Friday My Town Shoot Out - Colors of the Season

I received an e-mail from Ginger V. inviting me back to the shoot out. I had been on the shoot out blog over the week anyway, checking out the new layout, and I like it. I was happy to see this is still going, and I have wanted to come back for a while. My life is settling down (kind of), and I actually added the themes to my phone so that I could have them at hand when I am out and about.

This week's theme is Colors of the Season and I shot this on Monday or Tuesday. I see this tree almost daily and think of it as our own change of seasons barometer for my little area of Northern California. Right now, I get to see the rich colors of fall in the dead of winter :-). This shot is directly from my phone, no filters, and no edits.

Spectacular tree against a blue sky. Most of our leaves are down now, due to rain, wind and snow, but they lasted a long time this year.

Wonderful, colorful tree. We have quite a few trees that kept their colors extra long this year. They changed color, then the weather warmed up and the tress didn't drop their leaves so quickly.
