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,

Anne

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 Smile

Such stunning trees, Anne, and the contrast between the flame colours of the leaves and the grey of the sky is just perfect. Carol

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.

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.

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 Smile

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.
