Who Says Texas Doesn’t Get Fall Color?

The last couple weekends I’ve managed to get out for a some bike rides, and last weekend I brought the camera with me. We finally managed to get a little bit of fall color around here. They took their sweet time about it, and there’s not a lot of it, but some of the trees really put on quite a show.

Of the three pictures here, two are of a type of pear tree that traditionally has some great fall color around Austin at this time of year. The other is of course an oak of some kind.

As I rode by the same trees this weekend, the wind this past week had already taken most of the leaves off the pear tree. I guess I caught the photo at the peak time.

  3. Great shots of the pear tree leaves. We’re missing the great winter Texas weather. Hope you had a merry Christmas. Maybe we’ll catch up and see each other in the new year.

    Cheers… Guy
