Autumn Leaves

This was one of those “wow” moments on a recent road trip, when we drove around a corner into a grove of poplar trees, on the road to Die Hoek, near Oudtshoorn, in the Western Cape. The leaves were a blaze of yellow and the wind was gusting through them and whisking them away flurries.

your picture is really nice. i love seeing color enter the trees during the fall season. nothing is more beautiful. it's always an added bonus to see the leaves twirling around in the air from the wind too... have a great weekend~

It's been so much fun seeing the fall season/colors on the webs of people across the world while we're enjoying every moment of spring and warmth and colors of a different kind!! Thanks for sharing this with us! Hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend, Max!!
