Maple vs. Oak

We generally have two fall foliage shows in Maine each year. First the maples and then the birches and oaks. The birches are actually kind of a bridge between the two, starting to turn with the maples and finishing up with the oaks. This year is different in so many ways, so it should not be surprising that the foliage is out of sync. There are lots of full color leaves still on the maples (or were until yesterday’s heavy rains), but the oaks are already turning. The oaks never achieve the brilliant red of the maples, and shade on over to brown all too soon, but they have their own character. Sony Rx10iv at 330mm equivalent. Program mode.
