  3. My first impression is such good composition for a painting. Simple. Colorful. And complementary colors.

    • If I could paint I would do this picture in watercolor! But I can’t, so photo it is. πŸ™‚ Thanks for your comment! Always much appreciated.

    • Autumn’s my favorite season, I love the colors! Very jealous of your trip to Yukon, I was there in June 2010 and it was amazing but looked even nicer in your autumn pictures πŸ™‚

      • Yes, autumn is amazing. One advantage of my current life – I get a LONG autumn. Starts in late August in Denali, then I move to the lower 48 and get it all over again. So about 6 weeks of fall!

        I’d love to see your pics of Yukon.

        • About 30 minutes after I passed the famous ‘Welcome to Yukon’ sign, I spotted a bear cub next to the road! I took some shots (from the car) and then I dropped my camera in all the excitement. It didn’t work after that, so those are my only pictures from Yukon.. The sign and the bear. I envy your long autumn! πŸ™‚

    • It’s the backside of an ugly bus station, but the vine is beautiful! Most of it is still green, but I found some branches with this nice color. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! Can’t wait for the rest of the leaves to turn red/orange/yellow as well! It’s still more green over here, but it’s happening soon… πŸ™‚
