Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

So this is what autumn looked like in your town.

@Curly: The weird aspect to this Curly is that I made this capture yesterday morning - right here in town. I grew up on the eastern seaboard of the US - outside Washington, D.C. That area gets the vibrant autumn that lasts about six weeks before the trees are bare and winter is set in. Coastal California on the other hand - has a very subtle autumn. The leaves become more pastel for the most part - but it doesn't end! There will be color in the trees throughout our winter 'wet season' and it is rare to see a tree go bare of leaves before the spring buds appear in early February and our lone spring begins. Plum blossoms in early February and cherry Blossoms three weeks later!

Oh man what I wouldn't give to know that spring is right around the corner. I am in hibernation mode now along with my peers here in Michigan, today's high was 8 degrees. Anyway, love the muted colors of this.
