Another image from Bastrop State Park.
I don't think any tree shows a more vivid autum colour than our Flameleaf Sumac. These new growth trees are putting on quite a display amidst the blacks and browns of the forest floor.
Thanks for looking,
Love this composition, the depth is fantastic and very well done!
It's amazing how the Sumac stands out against the grasses and trees -- almost as if you had done a selective coloring.
Nice one, Anne.

Thank you Walter - I'm hoping people understand it is not selective colouring. The drabness of the surrounding vegetation really make these stand out. I made John come to a squealing stop when I saw these from the car
The red is so lovely against the dullness of the b/g. Great image.......Sandy
This is a great photo Anne - very well seen and captured with excellent contrast and depth
Great with the contrasting colours
Such stunning trees, Anne, and the contrast between the flame colours of the leaves and the grey of the sky is just perfect. Carol
The low POV gives real strength to this fine composition.
Nature reclaiming the land Anne, splash of life returning after mans unfortunate result.
A defiant burst of life and colour. I like the way this distinguishes between the different areas, the leaves seem to be watching the burnt trees warily.
And death shall have no dominion...
Superb burst of colour in among the drabness of winter woods Anne. Excellent.
I like the splash of colour
Great colour and depth, greatly composed.
A poetic study of the resilience of nature.....gorgeous!
fantastic colours as if there are three layers of saturation in your image.
Is that the edible sumac.. the one you use in cooking? I have never seen the plant only the berries as you can buy them but I love it in salads and rice.
A quite different flame touching the forest floor. How wonderful is Nature?
Beautiful. Those lovely leaves lead us right through into the picture. A photographer's photograph.
It does initially - especially viewing the thumbnail - look like selective colouring, the leaves stand out so vividly against the muted colours in the background. A cracking capture, Anne
Had one in my garden once, lovely colours until it tried to take over the whole garden, I did not know about the suckers underground, still like them but not in my garden lol. nice photo, regards Leon.
The lovely rich colour stands out well against the BG Anne, great comp,
Thanks to all who have stopped by.

Yes, those suckers can be of concern to this forest area - it takes pines years to grow back, but the sumac will sprout up all over the place. I forsee the ecology changing a great deal here in the years to come.
A super view point Anne, and a lovely Forest image displaying those wonderful Leaves at their best.
These read leaves against those barren trees are beautiful. Well chosen point of view.
really enjoyable series Anne,
"three pines" has a beautiful composition I like it really much
wonderful colour (color)!!
