Sumac leaves

Here’s something from end of October. The glory of sumac is the symmetrical rows of leaves and their deep crimson color. Not all of them get that rich color (sometimes they just drop), and the change can start surprisingly early, with some red leaves coming in late August and early September. This bunch was little different, partly red and green, with subtle highlights on the stems from late afternoon blue skies. Out of season, but I can use the color about now…

  1. I didn’t shoot much sumac this year, not sure why. They provide such vibrant colors and interesting details. I know the feeling about wanting to see color – quite gray and depressing here in Michigan.
