leaves! on kumotoriyama, originally uploaded by julesberry2001.

The leaf season seems to be different every year. This year all the trees seem to be turning together and the non-momiji are very good. Usually trees like the cherry turn brown and the leaves fall quickly to the ground a few weeks before the gingko and momiji turn brilliant yellow and orange. Here at work the main concern is whether there will be anything left on the trees in Kyoto for the PMIP3 workshop in early December,

This photo was taken around 1000m altitude on a walk in the mountains last weekend with Joel, our super-human friend from Oz. James was kind enough to carry my camera and spare lens most of the time, giving me the chance to not getting too far behind but still take some photos.

Not quite so synchronised here. The cherries went a while back, though horse chestnuts were first though, and we're just about losing the oaks, now.

This was Chatsworth, though the trees probably aren't all native (yeah I know cherries aren't either), but I think that's a beech in the middle.
