The long, slow fall

Some years the trees seem to change colors and fall off the the limbs in a weeks time. This year the colors are slow to change. This oak is holding on to it's green as long as it can. I love the way the red mixes with the green.

This maple has a wonderful pale yellow color with a bit of red. Leaves on the same branch are green with just a hint of yellow or red.

Looking up through the canopy the fall colors seem to be winning. Once a hard freeze hits the area I am sure that the leaves will tumble to the ground.
