I've lived in Portland for years, but I've never been able to catch this tree at the peak of the fall colors. I was a bit late this year, but I'm pleased with how the image turned out. On the morning I visited the Japanese Garden, a slight breeze was rapidly knocking the leaves off this tree. The one good thing about the falling leaves is that they created a nice carpet of color beneath the tree.
Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you have. I really appreciate it!
