Tombstone Tuesday: Fall Colors

Sun is not a requirement for
spectacular photos of fall foliage!

On yet another unseasonably cold and dreary day in the Land of Oz,
I went looking for trees whose leaves were so colorful, so vivid,
that they wouldn't need the sun for illumination.

A few just happened to be at a cemetery I pass nearly every day.

From the main road, however, a passerby only sees this:

Ho hum....

But turn the corner or come from the other direction:

Only the leaves on the south side have turned!

The shape of this tree top caught my eye...

...as did the scene under it.

But farther along the road, a gigantic tree that hasn't turned...

...that I purposely left mono-chromatic and out of focus...

...and then intensified the color for effect.

Now, click on it and view full-size.

Looks rather like an Enchanted Forest, doesn't it?
