Default Oregon Yellow

Well, there's s little red, but mostly yellow. At least today anyway.

It was good to see a kid out fishing on a Saturday. He was alone though. I suspect his friends were sitting in front of an Xbox.

Yellow was about all I was seeing in Colorado last month when I was there for that meeting. Mountains were covered in it, and it was gorgeous, just like the yellows here.

I like your use of the trail in that first image, leading the viewer to the colors.

Very nice colors, those are the famous Olympus colors.

I agree with Greg about the first picture.

What kind of bird is the one you captured on the last picture?

The bird is a California Quail. According to the range map you're not likely to see them in New York. I actually got lucky and photographed a covey of California Quail crossing a two-track today. Haven't had a chance to look at them yet but if they turned out I'll post later.

Once they saw me it sounded like thunder as they jumped into the air scattering in all directions. Gave me quite a start.

Excellent shots Alan; not only the very realistic colors, but also your compositions are very good.

Good catch of the quail. Very photogenic birds but I have only managed to get a few shots of them over the years.

I like these so very much and wish we had tree colors here.

I stopped by the pond here yesterday late afternoon but just no color there. A year ago I caught an afterrnoon sun which I hope to see again before all the leaves are blown away.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Oregon isn't really known for fall colors. Not like back east anyway. Some years are better that others though, and this one was pretty good.

If you and the missis ever make it to Oregon let me know. There's plenty to see here even in winter.
