[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Acer is a genus of trees or shrubs commonly known as maple. Maples are variously classified in a family of their own, the Aceraceae, or together with the Hippocastanaceae included in the family Sapindaceae

Fall in Eastern Washington is always a splendor. Although many trees change colors for reasons stated here many times over the years, the maple is most common coloured tree and easiest to find. BUT not every year is the same. Some years trees change to a rust moldy colour and drop in the first wind. 2012 is turning into a splendid year for maples...and I am fortunate enough to have a few within distance of my electric wheelchair...

Due to my ongoing neurological disorder I do not post very much and my crits are sometimes hard for me to find words. My residual symptoms may affect me for the rest of my life... but I still think of Trek Nature and my good friends here often. Blessings to all...

Hello Bob,
So nice to see a picture from you and a beautiful document on the current season in your part of the world. Funny I just had posted the same subject, just other kind of leaves. Very well composed natural shot.
We have some Acer-species in our Botanical Garden and in late autumn they turn too in a splendid red, as you show on your picture.
Thanks also for the personal note.
We also haven't forgotten you either:-)
Kind regards

Hello Bob,
I see the leaves are starting to turn their beautiful shades of color out their in Washington. You should see what they look like up in your old stomping grounds, they are simply gorgeous. Rosie and I are planning to head over towards PA. this weekend just to view the fall colors.
It sure is great to see a post from you once again, and this is certainly a beauty. I've never be up to Washington, so I wasn't sure if they were as colorful as they are here in the east, but I see they are.
Whenever I hear of "Sun News" I think of you and the many articles you contributed to it so many years ago. Take care Bob, and stay in touch.
God Bless,

Great photo Robert! The composition is excellent. The colors are fantastic!
