The autumn of 2011 started with storm in the middle of September that brought down most of the leaves, and ended with a heavy storm last weekend that brought us some serious snow!
In between we had a great autumn, for instance November 2011 was the warmest for over a century.
The present image was taken on my last mountain trip for the season, even in this altitude the temperature was better than many summer days.
The juniper adds some fresh green to the scenery, otherwise nature is ready for winter. However the red tree is really standing out, seems like it was better able to keep the foliage during the storm. They are few and far between but they really stood out in nature this day…
And I don’t even know what kind of tree it is! Anyone for help?

Gøy at jeg legger inn et bilde rett etter deg der jeg forteller om den altfor varme høsten vi har hatt... Nå har vi i alle fall fått en halv cm og litt smak av vinter her i Bergen.
This picture is nice, and in a way it also tells a bit about the Norwegian autumn this year (combined with a good note as well).
Ha en fin dag,

The road is sending my eye toward the trees in the background which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the trees. The late morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Une très belle composition. La clôture guide le regard vers ce superbe arbre revêtu de ses parures d'automne.Une très belle luminosité .

Hello Pablo ,
A simple place , but an excellent composition with attractive elements : roads , wooden fences , the red tree of course . Interesting to see how early fall the leaves in this northern part of Europa .
PaulVDV (29193) 2011-12-02 10:16
A very well composed and colourful nature picture. Several elements are important for the beauty of this photo: the road dividing in two and in the same time showing us the differences in relief, the fence in the left corner with the wooden battens, placed somewhat disorderly, the different colours in the nature with that tree with the red leaves asking everyone's attention and the nice view of the mountain slope in the distance.
Best regards, Paul

ottimo POV da cui esce fuori l'albero colorato e il perfetto inserimento a margine della staccionata.
Ottima la resa con la via che attraversa la scena,

Hello Dear Pablo.
Very nice composition with wonderful color of a tree in the center of the frame and good presentation with succesful light management, saharpness and contrast. Curved path has added beautiful movement to the image in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing and comment for my autumn picture.
macondo (19564) 2011-12-02 12:25
Can't help with the type of tree, but I love the magnificent splash of colour it provides in this shot. Very pleasing composition, with the roads and fences making some nice angles and a good highlight in the glancing sunlight. Sharp as a tack, too. I've just arrived in Toulouse, and it's my first chance to experience a northern hemisphere Autumn since 1974!
siudzi (34141) 2011-12-02 12:28
You have discovered and presented a lovely place! Like the simple but very elegant composition with so many interesting elements and colors. Very well done.

Everything looks so beautiful here. The wooden fence on the left is well placed with one of the roads going by the side of it. The colors of the nature are superb, specially the red ones. Lovely landscape with beautiful colors and sharpness.
jhm (153776) 2011-12-03 0:58
Quiet image with a very well choice of your angle, this care for depth and perspective.
The road leads us between the lovely autumn colors of the trees to the background.
Splendid rural image.
Also a nice panorama about these area.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
UlfE (14641) 2011-12-03 4:09
What a wonderful autumn scene. The red leaves of the tree is really glowning. Your composition is also superb with the fence being a nice diagonal line that leads in to the tree. Excellent clarity and colours. TFS and have nice weekend!
ChrisJ (114735) 2011-12-03 4:13
Love the high contrasted lighting here. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red / yellow vegetation & the hazy blue background. Nice composition too, with the pale blue grey road adding good lead in lines & perspective. Tfs!
mvdisco (17794) 2011-12-03 7:24

saxo042 (37890) 2011-12-03 8:55
Beuatiful autumn colours and very well composed picture. The diagonal line of the fence leads directly to the red leaves of the lonely tree. Also a beautifully blue background.

Giorgio (11279) 2011-12-04 0:11
- Very nice composition Pablo, the wooden barrier at the crossroads of these ways has a very romantic and poetic aspect, the red spot of the tree attracts the eye, the various plans, add relief to this already very beautiful image, bravo!
Have a good Sunday.
Kielia (24077) 2011-12-04 7:42
a very good composition and a charming impression of this wonderful place in the countryside. The red bush makes the image very attractive. Excellent management of the light and very beautiful autumnal colors. My compliments!
Kitty_the_Wild (1169) 2011-12-04 10:16
I like the atmosphere of this mountain path, with the low sun and these warm colors.
paololg (31448) 2011-12-04 13:06
Ciao dear Pablo,
I am not a botanist, but maybe this could be a beautiful red maple tree, but I'm not sure. In any case, the chromatic effect is gorgeous, looks like a brushstroke on a painting. Truly a pleasant image, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice week!
Cricri (120143) 2011-12-05 4:31
Une image bien composer, bien cadrer avec une douce lumière d'automne, l'arbre attire le regard, c'est une très belle réalisation
maloutim (9639) 2011-12-05 19:01
The red-leaf tree really stands out like a bonfire against the dark leafless trees around and the bluish forest in the background ! The sunny foreground completes the happy scenery, and the crossroads makes us want to be there taking part in the trek !
Congratulations for capturing such a wonderful scenery ! They are rare your photos that don't include a red eye-catcher :-)) But this time, it wasn't a house or a barn !
As for the tree, sorry not to be able to help. There is only one option : Go back there next spring and pick a leaf in order to find out the species !
TFS and have a good week !
pajaran (61244) 2011-12-05 23:51

Bonjour, cher ami Pablo,
Très belle image d'une fin d'automne. Le cadrage est parfait pour nous présenter ce très beau spectacle.
Un effet de 3D est remarquable.
Félicitations pour cette nouvelle réussite.
jmdias (64994) 2011-12-06 1:01
excellent job, the framing is marvelous with the fences, the road and the trees well positioned. the red hues of the tree against the blue background created a nice contrast. excellent ligh. beautiful job.
here we had a week with hot and sunny dry days, now it is a grey fresh morning.

beautiful this Autumn coloured scenery with the tree with the reddish leafs to be the eye catching of the image.I like this rural environment with the narrow road to creates depth and perspective in the shot, making it so charmy and adorable.
Have a good day,Danos

The composition is remarkable, and that to say about this magnificent light and about these magnificent colors. A real pleasure of eyes, and an irreproachable quality. Congratulations.
Have a nice day
emilbo (22616) 2011-12-07 8:37
Magnifique Photo avec encore une touche de couleurs d'automne. La composition est bien gérée et l'ensemble est bien équilibré. J'aime bien le chemin qui tourne et l'autre qui va vers la maison ou la ferme. Excellent éclairage et qualité d'image qui donne de l'éclat aux couleurs. La clôture est bien vue.
Toutes mes félicitations et merci de ta visite,
macjake (68488) 2011-12-07 8:44
wonderful scene here.
the lighting on the left side of the frame/fence is what makes this photo a great one instead of a good one. the colors are very atumnal, just what you'd want in a november scene.
well composed and seen.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-12-07 10:04
Beautiful and very well coloured with an efficience managment of light which give natural colors, contrast and plesanat play of shade. I like too the balalnce of the composition with the way and the wood's barrier which give propsect effect.
Have a nice evening,
jemaflor (98091) 2011-12-07 10:38
Good depth with this path and the presence of the fence, interesting effect with this nice light and the fall colors for the tree, tfs.
josepmarin (58359) 2011-12-07 11:10
this one is a nice composition based on a simple image, powerful and natural, perfectly caught by means of a clever framing.
The autumn colors in the trees, and the good luminosity, create a very attractive and very suggestive atmosphere.
An excellent work, it is a photo with a high quality.
skippy007 (12510) 2011-12-07 19:22
Hello Pablo, Beautiful eye catching image, at first it is the red leaves that attract all the attention but I like the way you have composed this scene with the road & fence leading the eye well into the image. Nice work, beautiful colours & excellent clarity.
danyy (0) 2011-12-07 23:52
Belle fresque de l'automne Pablo, naissant...
Couleurs vives, compo simple et naturelle bien cadrée.
Longroute (19396) 2011-12-08 0:39
These colours assured you the success!
Again it's the quality of the light here which makes the image so vibrant and alive. Autumn is a good season for the light!
Smart composition with the road and the fences which lead the eye towards the lovely tree with the red leaves. Fine sense of space and 3D and great contrast both of light and colours.
Very intense and fine,
Royaldevon (39344) 2011-12-08 0:55
Good Morning Pablo,
Sorry, I can't help solve the problem of the tree.
The weather you describe is similar to the conditions that we had, a quick turn in temperature, high winds and the lovely autumnal spectacle was quickly removed inmany places.
This is a lovely shot, taken from a pov which gives a choice on our direction. The fence drew my attention to the l/h side first; then I followed the road to the right, enjoying the eye-catching tree.
The light is lovely, giving interesting shadows across the path, helping to define the camber.
Have a good day,
La_Tulipe (2798) 2011-12-08 13:56
Une Balade d'automne avec une luminosité intense qui a permis de valoriser toutes ces couleurs de saison.

Hello Pablo. I can only repeat my words again and again. The landscapes in your home are beautiful. And you have the talent to make great photos of them. My compliments., Wolfgang Rgds.

Tanks for your kind words Pablo
I'm convinced you coloured all those brilliant tones, painter's palette in hand, allover this fiery scenery before taking the picture!
An expensive tableau for shure!
You're right for the airplane!
Hansaphotos (8135) 2011-12-09 15:59
Truly a nice composition. Unfortunately I don`t know which kind of tree this is, but it`s really interesting to see the difference between the this and the birches with its empty branches. Norwegian autumn at its best. A great capture:) TFS. Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling
sacavem (18620) 2011-12-11 14:24
Very attractive picture, with a moody autumn atmosphere,Again, the Autumnal colours are magic and light so beautifully.
Have a nice day and best regards,
Angshu (56758) 2011-12-11 20:57
Nice picture, well composed! I especially like the flaming red of the leaves against the sun which is the main attraction & focus in this picture. I also like the fence which adds another dimension to this image. Well done!
Vasa (515) 2011-12-12 8:02
Many of your photos are the real canvas. Your work is the true artistic inspiration. All compliments Pablo!!
s_lush (16134) 2011-12-12 21:05
As your picture shows, autumn is the most colorful and beautiful season of the year, as well as here, in Ukraine. The contrast between trees having leaves and leafless ones, as well as the contrast of their colors is really striking. Under bright sunlight this autumn scene looks simply wonderful. Excellent depiction of beauty of the nature!
gildasjan (43648) 2011-12-22 9:53
le feuillage rouge de cet arbre crée une belle partion de couleurs avec le bleu de l'arrière plan sous le voile atmosphérique.Les barrières en bois à gauche apportent une excellente touche à cette image.
gunbud (34066) 2011-12-29 7:21
What a peaceful, charming autumn scene with the two little traveled roads meeting among the stunning fall colors.
The fence makes a splendid lead-in to this beautiful countryside image.
A Happy New Year To You & Your Family.
foozi (7101) 2012-04-12 7:04
indeed a beautiful presentation of the season. The bright tree is an exciting element seen here.
The junction is well spotted and add beauty to your composition.
