I was absolutely amazed at the “fire” in these red leaves last weekend. The blue bicycle beneath the tree really pleased me because both colors are so bright and alive.

My visit the next day to the cemetery, where I found a bush and tree growing out of the actual grave (gives me a stomachache thinking about that too long), was especially stunning due to the blood-red color of the leaves which were laying sprinkled on the dark-green bush.

Tree with blood-red leaves growing out of the grave. There's a ballad to be written about that.

Fascinated me and gave me chills at the same time.

      Really a beautiful way to celebrate death... giving new life! All these colors are stunning and the first shot has a wonderful contrast.

      The colors are stunning. Love the contrast with the blue bikes. The flowers on the grave, although colorful, were certainly misplaced. They hid the gravestone...hum...maybe something chilling about that, too!

      It could be that nature was honoring the person in the grave... it is beautiful with that red carpet!
