More and more-subtle fall foliage

Bare Cedar Elm by More-Colorful Trees 8597

From November 24, 2014, at McKinney Falls State Park, here’s some more-diversified fall foliage—or in the case of the prominent but sinuous tree in the foreground, no foliage at all. I believe the bright red leaves at the lower left are from a young rusty blackhaw (Viburnum rufidulum). In the background you can make out a bald cypress tree (Taxodium distichum), some cedar elms (Ulmus crassifolia) with yellow or yellow-orange leaves, and the temporarily brown water of Onion Creek.

To those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving today, I wish you a happy holiday. To those of you in countries that don’t celebrate Thanksgiving today, I still wish you a happy holiday.
