Sumac Glow

When autumn comes, the rather unremarkable sumac bush takes on very remarkable colours.

Rhythm in Sumac

Sumac grows with most rhythmic branches.

Different exotic, elegant curves form when the plant develops.

Sumac Branch

This dead bush, missing its bark in places, provides texture as well as curve.

Sumac Red

I can’t think of a deeper, darker, richer red than sumac in the fall. Sumac Red

Sumac

Fall sumac colours are most spectacular.

Sumac 2 Autochrome 2

In the days before Kodachrome, colour photographs employed the autochrome process.

This is a Photoshop simulation of that process.

Sumac Rhythm II

The skiing was great but left little time for making photographs.

So here is another in a series of rhythmic trees:

The patterns remind me of the figure skating and painting style of Toller Cranston.

Oddly awkward.

Modern Dancers?

The branches of Sumac bushes remind me of a troup of modern dancers.

Arms upraised, all angles and contortions.

Dressed in blue.

No two identical.  Each doing their own different thing but somehow similar to the others.

One More

Couldn’t resist posting one more sumac shot:

This one I played with the processing a bit.

Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t.

Winter Colour

Sumac leaves turn the most gorgeous red in the fall.  The seed pods are also a deep red.  It seems that red and sumac go together.

Against a white background, they stand out even better!

Fall Is Definitely Here

When the sumac turns its glorious red, we know fall has arrived.

Recently we have experienced bright blue sky sunshine.  Yesterday’s rain and cloudy skies produced a pleasant change in the light making it much more gentle.
