Default Is it summer or fall?

This tree seems to be having trouble deciding whether it's summer or fall. The leaves on some branches are still deep green; on others they're brilliant red. I have enjoyed New England autumns for more than 30 years, but I can't remember ever seeing this phenomenon before.

I noticed the tree around mid-day, and I came back with my camera later in the day when the lighting would be nice. What I didn't realize is that as the sun is going down at this time of year, another tree casts a shadow directly on this tree. Oh well -- you have to work with what you get!

K5 with DA 18-135.

I'm glad you spotted it (pun Intended). I have lived here most of my life and never remember seeing the likes of it either. Thanks for showing the tree.

Your season is further along than ours, though I did notice some of the cottonwoods have turned yellow.

It sure looks neat, I like it.

Very interesting foliage pattern. Have noticed that some tree species begin changing at the top, others at the outer branches, others start with the inner branches, etc. But this pattern is certainly unique!
