Pardon me, but I don't see anything glorious in those photos (#1 - #4). Would you care to elaborate, please?

Oh well, fall colors are glorious, aren't they?

They are, yes. But to be called glorious, they have to be closer to this: http://tinyurl.com/fallglory . In my opinion at least.

After that sort of crap I'm a bit affraid to say what I'm about to say in fear of not being taken seriousely! Anyway, sorry to say but are these not just slightly out of focus? I know that you often say that it is the screen (and that may be true) but the way my screen is (and these photo's are) they seem just very slightly out. As if the back ground is more in focus. Particularly in #1. Aside from that I DO think that these are Stunningly Fabulouse!! And that's my oppinion.

It is one thing to go out and take a picture of mother nature changing for the winter rest, but it is another when you have a tree that is totally dependant on you to care for it, water it, feed it, then watch it change with the other trees in nature. Im guessing you dont have any bonsai.

Dear Anonymous,
It is virtually inpossible to combine every single color from that entire forest which consists of thousands and thousands of trees, including many many species-into a few single specimen!
Anonymous, When YOU can cultivate a tree that can exhibit all those colors in one, only THEN can you feel free to put down others' work.

Walter your trees are amazing, I love them all!

Warren, they are definitely not out of focus; none of them. Click onto them to make the larger.

It is the compaction that is run by the bloger program that makes the images look slightly blury: the effect is eliminated if you click to view them as Walter suggests.

Must the colours be particularly vivid to make the change in seasons spectacular? I think not. Part of the glory of Autumn is that it is unpredictably different each year!
