Wednesday Colours

So it is raining today, Thursday, but yesterday morning the colours were spectacular in the trees that still had leaves.

Beside one walnut, almost empty of leaves, were these catching the morning sun.

This ash tree was full of morning sunlight!

The elms and walnuts had lost most of their leaves but this sugar maple was showing through.

This black cherry was looking very  happy.

This part of the south ravine trail is almost at the west side of our property.

This little sumac could not decide which colour to turn.

I have almost daily photos of this scene that I want to make into a time lapse work sometime in the future. I have taken photos at almost the same location since late last winter.

Leaves from our walnut trees are rapidly disappearing.

Running Note

            Back in 1995, when I was 52, I was very pleased to run a marathon in 3 hours 51 minutes, 5 seconds. I have only attempted that distance one time since then and it was 5h 5m 5s when I was 66. (I thought it was when I was 67; so much for my memory.) Anyway, this morning an 85 year old  runner, who lives about a marathon distance away from me, made an extraordinary run at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.

            In the same race, a friend of mine who works out in the same gym as I do in Brantford, came in first of all Canadian women.
