I took a trip up into the mountains last Sunday, to check up a couple of places for some photography and to get some “shutter therapy”.
As I climbed the mountains, the temperature dropped several degrees, and I ended up at Mount Wilson, as I’d been told the trees were particularly good during Autumn.
Alas, I was a couple of weeks late, and most of the trees were bare, although there were some particularly beautiful Japanese maples that had retained their foliage.

Love this Japanese maple with the sun peeking through. They are so elegant (there are 2 in my yard).
Autumn in all its brilliance.
They are my all-time favourite tree. Three of the houses I have lived in have had one in the garden.
Yea that timing thing is a feast or famine for me too. I just try and make the best of it while I am there. Love the maple shots also. You keep throwing me off with seasons 🙂
I’m still thrown, myself. We watched The Snowman animation the other day, and I promised my son (yet again) that we would take him up the mountain next time it snows. Most of the Christmas kid’s books in Australia still have Christmas stories with snow and cold – no wonder he’s confused.
The red maple leaves are stunning!
Mike, this is beautiful and very inspiring.
