Autumn colors

My yard is somewhat overrun with squirrels, horrible little beasts! They managed to erase the entire bed of beans I planted, as well as the carrots, and tried their best with the cucumbers and tomatos, although the scarcity of the former, and my vigilance on the latter, thwarted the thieves a bit.

Being something of a color addict, I enjoy looking at tomatos. The red of a fresh, homegrown tomato seems to emanate summer light. They glow.

The apples aren't my own, but once I start photographing food I usually get a little carried away.

There is something appealing about the ripeness of a red tomato...when it is in it's fullness and glory. Truly autumnal inspiring for me on this drab October day.
As for the squirrels...ugh..a pox on those..never mind what they get into in the gardens..they tear into the roof to make a home...vile creatures indeed!

living in the desert, surrounded by mountains, I craved the golden colours of autumn and hiked the golden aspen trail through the high santa catalinas, only to find the charred remains of the towering aspens, their offspring only now bearing tiny golden leaves scattered along the trail, the fires of 2003 MW
