Due to the severe drought the midwestern states experienced this year, folks around this area didn’t think we would have a very colorful Fall. However, after one much needed rain several weeks ago, the trees and foilage began to color-up, so-to-speak. Although the colors aren’t as vivid as some years have shown, we were surprised at the result. Attached are photos of trees and various other scenes taken in my yard, and areas close to my home in Lenexa. I chose these locations to hi-lite our area’s beauty (plus it was alot easier to stick around home!). I shot with a Canon Rebel SLR. I hope you enjoy nature’s beauty from my perspective as much as I enjoyed taking these photographs. Have a great Autumn. P.S. I have added some photos through Nov.10 th.
