Fall Colours At Their Peak
|Panorama of NB Fall Colours|
Our autumn colours are now at their peak. Just stepping out the door gives one a fabulous view. How magnificent the colours look on a sunny day! Although it is difficult (and impossible in my view) to capture that beauty on camera, I am showing some of my photos to try to show off some of our splendour.

The colours are best in hardwood or predominantly hardwood habitats. The sugar maples turn red and orange; the red maples are red or yellow; the oaks and beeches are brown, the birches and poplars are yellow. Add to that the many shades of each of these colours and mix them with a multitude of shades of green from the yellow greens of deciduous leaves just beginning to turn to the dark cool greens of softwood trees and you have a bonanza of colour. Nature has a way of doing it best!
