Sunday Stills: Red and Green

The challenge this week was red and green together in the same photo.

Northern Pin Oak  October 01 2010

These are leaves from a Northern Pin Oak. They turn red slowly..lucky for me..the red veins must signal the rest of the leaf to turn color.  We are past peak for viewing leaves here in our yard.  The Northern Pin Oaks are slow.  The Burr Oaks have turned brown and fallen off.
