“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”  Stanley Horowitz 

We have several huge Katsura trees in the back yard.  They are luscious green in the spring and summer, and an absolutely stunning orange/yellow/red in the Autumn.  They are at their best right now.  Stunning.  

The Katsura tree is a very distinctive landscape tree known for its delicate leaves and bright autumn colour.  In autumn, the heart shaped leaves smell of burnt sugar when crushed, and the tree turns bright yellow, pink, and orange-red.  The botanical name is Cercidiphyllum japonicum.

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, Fluttering from the autumn tree.”  Emily Bronte

It’s that time of year again . . . how quickly summer seemed to pass!  The leaves on the trees are turning their gorgeous shades of  red, orange and yellows, and cascading to the ground leaving a beautiful rich carpet.  I just had to get out and play around a bit.  I had a vision of creating a “waterfall” of leaves showering down on the camera.  It didn’t really work out exactly like I wanted . . . but I do like the blown out image.  I would have liked the leaves to be a bit more defined.  I’ll keep working at it, but it’s now raining – our wettest weekend here since May.  I enjoyed playing in the leaves though – brought me back to my childhood in Northern Ontario!
