Photographer's Note

Red and sugar maples electrify a country road that runs along the Kennebecasis River in Southern New Brunswick - amidst the ominous backdrop of an approaching nor'easter.

The ambient light on a dark gloomy day seems to always trump the more brighter days when 'bringing out' the more intense shades of orange-brown.

Colour hue/intensity can vary from year to year - depending mostly on the climate & weather conditions within the months leading up to this autumn spectacle.

Although 2010 has seen overall leaf density diminished by an early hurricane/storm season - the 'wow factor' is at or slightly above average.
