Autumn or Summer

By Irishkate  
This poor Sycamore tree doesn't know if it is autumn or summer.
A few years ago some' hoodlum' stripped it's bark off and I wondered
if it would survive. It did but I've noticed the different colours of leaves
at this time this year and last. Any explanation anybody?
Thanks you all very much for votes and User Awards for all
my recent flower images. I'm very humbled to have this support
ans encouragement. Thank you all.

It seems to have survived but I'm not so sure it's that happy: does look a bit odd, Kate.
Interesting subject and although very centrally placed in the frame, somehow it works.

It does look none to happy Kate, perhaps it will pick up again next year!
Is where the bark removed on the coloured side?. Hope it survives.

A whole new take on the 'Burning Bush' colour in abundance, simply quite magical.

Marvellous light and changing colours Kate. This tree may have some sort of disease perhaps caused by the bark being stripped, this may explain the sudden and premature changes in colour. I know many of the horse chesnut trees leaves are already turning brown and orange because of some disease which will wipe them out eventuallySad

Excellent camera control all over, classic shot.
