maple leafAfter heavy rains and storms for the past two days, I caught a rainbow over the mountains just before it disappeared this afternoon. The fall leaves are pretty this year, but after a hot and extremely dry summer, they are nowhere near as bright and colorful as in past years. After the heavy winds of the last few days, a lot of the leaves are now on the ground. Click on any of the photos to view larger.

After nearly a month of torrential rains here and cooler windy weather for the past couple of days, a lot of the leaves have already fallen. There is lot of green still left in the mountains but in the sunniest areas, the leaves are bright and pretty. These photos were all taken from my yard. Click on any photo to enlarge.
