Hidden Marsh in Pink and Yellow


It warmed up some so I took my canoe out on the Portage River and Took this shot while paddling past the Hidden Marsh Sanctuary in Three Rivers, a nature preserve of the Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy. A little shaky - hard to photo with one hand while steering clear of a sand bank with the other! The pinks are dogwood, and the yellow, a maple; an enormous oak with gold-brown leaves hovers above all.

Superb! We don't get this in our corner of the world. Everything is still green here.

Thank you! The colors of fall were an unexpected delight to me when I moved to this part of the country. Sue, I hope you have some beautiful days up there.

I wouldn't have expected to see some of these colors in the fall - and they are lovely. What a great photo!
