Vibrant colors, Paulie - looks like you're having more moisture there in the NW.
The red looks even more beautyful with this fantastic blue sky behind!
Rain? I'm still not sure what to expect when we head home on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure with the temps I've seen at home that it won't be rain.
and here you have such gorgeous photos with your new camera!! The raindrops, so beautiful, on the leaves.. About the bird further down..I do not know what bird it is.. I hope it was not hurt..Many lovely photos on this site! :)
Gorgeous! Happy New Year, my friend. God bless.
