Autumn Leaves

There’s a certain special something about the fall.  At any given time, the trees range in color from green to red to orange to yellow to brown, and everywhere in between – often with many different shades on one tree.  On November 14, 2002, a clear, cool, and crisp fall day, the trees of James Madison University were just about at the peak of their colors.

This photo set is also the first photo set that I made using “Big Mavica”, a Sony Mavica CD400 digital camera that I used from 2002 to 2008.


On JMU's east campus, this grove of trees is a dark maroon, nearly ready to shed its leaves for winter.

Looking towards Godwin Hall (in the background), we stand in the shade of orange leaves, while viewing gorgeous yellow leaves ahead of us.

In front of Warren Hall, people lounging on the green swing shown here can enjoy the shade provided by orange leaves, and delight in the red leaves beside them.

Nearer to the quad, we find a tree that's a gorgeous dark red, with a little green remaining in places.

One of the most beautiful trees on campus is located in front of Carrier Library, with leaves of green, red, yellow, and orange all together.

Behind Wilson Hall, next to Keezell Hall, this tree is still hanging on to a few yellow leaves, though most of its leaves have scattered to the four winds.

Along the breezeway, this tree displays branches full of bright red leaves.

Looking beyond the trees, we find more trees close to Wilson Hall that have already shed most of their leaves.

On the other side of Wilson Hall, next to Maury Hall, looking into the leaves, we find a field of yellow, with green leaves here and there.

What a beautiful sight, with the tree naturally fading from yellow to orange to red!

Beyond Maury Hall and Wilson Hall, we find coniferous trees, which remain green year round - quite a contrast to most of the trees on campus.

Behind Wilson Hall and Maury Hall, you definitely have a diversity of colors in the leaves!

Finally, looking through the trees in late afternoon, a tree holds onto a cluster of yellow leaves, even as most of its leaves have already gone.
