Here in Germany I am seeing something I don't remember seeing before. The leaves are changing a little at a time on individual trees. Below are two shots showing trees with 2 and 3 colors on them. I'm sure I've seen it, but I just don't remember or haven't noticed before. What about the rest of y'all? Is this typical?

Definitely not normal! Leaves don't change colors. :-)

I don't know about typical. We are having the same thing. Last weekend there were a lot of trees that had portions of them bright red. I didn't have time last weekend to shoot any. We went out today to Portsmouth on the water, but didn't see a whole lot of color on the way up. A few spots here and there and not as vibrant as even last weekend. I don't know how up north is right now. We usually don't see the full effects until the two middle weeks of October. (When I'll be gone a portion.)

The shot of the trees in the fair ones I posted is about all it looks like today. I was going to check out my normal spots this week to start keeping an eye on them. There are some nice trees on my way to work that I usually watch and capture as the week goes on.

Your second one looks similar to the third one in this thread - a picture I took two years ago. http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=80. So I suspect it's normal.

Our cottonwoods are just beginning to get tinged yellow. Many of the trees are going brown so I don't know if we'll get much color this year.

over here the native trees keep the leaves all year and there is no colour change at all

even some imported deciduous trees do not do the colour change nor do a complete leaf drop, so you can get new spring growth on a tree that still has last years leaves



not that it answers your question sorry

Thanks everyone for commenting. Perhaps it has to do with global warming! Whatever it is, it sure is beautiful!
