While traveling on Highway 51 in Matthews this past weekend, I spotted a colorful tree that stood apart from all the others. Thankfully, I was a passenger in the car and not the driver, so I put the window down and took these photos. Not bad considering I was in a moving vehicle! :-)
I have a special affinity for the trees whose leaves turn red. They're just so dramatic . . . especially when you live in the land of pine trees. Too bad the fall color doesn't last longer. I could get used to this view!
