Fall colors in Onondaga County, New York

I first saw trees leaves changing colors in late August, but then it seemed nature hit the pause button and color change stopped. However, recently the leaves began to change again. With many of the leaves here in Central New York finally starting to change into their fall colors I have gone out a few times trying to capture some of the colors. 

Thompson Road, at Camillus, NY.

The below two photographs were taken near Nine Mile Creek Aqueduct, along Thompson Road. These views are looking eastward as the road curves and twists its way through the fall foliage.

Pottery Road, at Warners, NY.

While out waiting for a train to at Pottery Road, in Warners, NY., I spotted this sliver of yellow leaves being highlighted by the mid-afternoon sunlight.

While driving down Warners Road, I took a turn onto Sheets Road. When I turned around on Sheets Road, to head back to Warenrs Road, I was treated with a  colorful view over the tree tops. This photograph is looking south from the top of a hill on Sheets Road. The tree top and hill top are south of Warners Road (Route 173).

Concrete arch and railway line at Martisco, NY.

Along Route 174 in Martisco, New York, I saw the trees starting to change on the other side of this archway. The archway supports the rail line of the Finger Lakes Railway. The line runs between Solvay, New York, and Canadaigua, New York.
