autumn colours

The autumn colours out here on the west coast vary each year depending upon the temperatures. Back east in southwestern Ontario warm days and cool, even frosty nights helped bring out the colour but here the natural vegetation will likely get you plenty of browns and tans rather than the brilliant oranges, yellows or reds like back east. Occasionally we get to see such brilliant colour but the trees tend not to be native to the region and instead are native to other regions, such as eastern North America or Japan. The photo above is one I took in early October 2008. Regardless, we do take the time to enjoy, so enjoy what your autumn season brings you! - V

Every years its somewhat different depending upon the differences in temperatures between daytime and nighttime but the sight is beautiful just the same. Each year I try to get up to Burnaby Mountain in October to take some photos of the colour. - V
