Vine Maples in Autumn Colors

Vine Maples in Autumn Colors


*Maples can always be relied on to provide a treat for the admirers of fall foliage.  The  above image of a bright yellow Vine Maple was taken in September, among the large old conifers near Lost Lake in the Mount Hood National Forest of Oregon. The brightly colored Vine Maples and solemn old conifers create a scene well worth the search.

In the above image, we noticed that the leaves of the Vine Maple exhibited a common, planar orientation.  We also observed that other Vine Maples in the area did not exhibit this property.  We were unable to account for this unusual form. 

Other lovely displays of Vine Maples from this area are given by (1) , and (2).
