Photo Walk 21 – Autumn Leaves in Vancouver
Vancouver is now fully into Autumn. We have a lot of trees turning red and it is a beautiful scenery in most streets.
Temperature has dropped to Winter level over the weekend and it was mainly clear. With only 8 degrees during day time, we had to turn up the heat at home finally. It was around 22 degrees the week before and I guess Winter is arriving fast.
There are lots of young trees around the neighbourhood that we are living in. We are so glad that a lot of them are established and are showing us the colour we are looking forward to.
We also have a lot of ever green trees around to balance it out, like what you see in the background here. After the leaves turn red, they fall in the wind and the tree will be left with only branches. We are grateful of the ever green trees as well.
We found this one in Downtown Vancouver near Coal Harbour. It is bright like fire!
A lot of the trees are just in the process of turning colour. But that is what makes them interesting because you often find trees with all three colours: red, yellow and green.
Maple leaves are of course the symbol of Canada. There are lots of species of maple trees. My favourite is still the Japanese Maple with bright red tree trunk.
The different colours on this tree is like a celebration of the end of Summer :)
These young trees will be a lot more magnificent in a few years. Behind these trees on the other side of the water is Stanley Park. As you can see the trees there are also turning colour.
This is almost the same view near sunset. Isn’t it just gorgeous?
