Autumn arrives in LA and we have color too!

Autumn for us isn’t about great swaths of color in our wooded areas and neighborhoods.  Its more like an exclamation point of color among the evergreens.  The grasses on the hilltops turn a golden yellow that is accentuated by the warm toned, long shadowed light we get this time of year.  Yesterday I detoured off the Freeway on the way home in the late afternoon just to enjoy “our fall color”.  Quite a few people had the same idea and were picnicking, horse back riding and hiking in the park.  Nice days like this are for enjoying not being stuck in a cube.

I have a couple more pics after the jump.

Hill tops aglow in the late afternoon sun.
Some trees turning a golden yellow near Travel Town.

There you go, my little diversion to one of the semi-wild spaces here in LA.  Where is your favorite place to go and just grab some fall color and solitude?

Pics by me with the trusty Che-ez snap, a .3 mega-pixel Diana for the digital age.  They get marginally bigger but not better with a quick click.
