So far it's still feeling like summer out here, with temperatures in the low 20s and a good amount of sunshine, but fall colors are have been starting to pop up over the last few weeks here, although they're still fairly dull and subdued at the moment (peak is usually in late October), and it's only on some trees, most are still green.

Today was a very hazy day and one of the last warm and sunny days we'll probably have before fall begins, so I went out and snapped some pictures.














And a little bit of fall color so far:

Nice pics. Looks hazy. The horizontal boundary between developed and unbuilt areas on the mountains on the first pic is kinda strange. I guess that the mountains are protected above a certain altitude?



Some pics from the highlands of southern Massif Central in south-central France (my parent's, not mine). Looks like it's still green there as well.


Scenic highway driving southwards from around Clermont-Ferrand (?)

One of the highest passes





These forests were maybe home to the Beast of Gévaudan in the 18th century. Notice the altitude on the sign (about 3,500').







Clearer skies. Approaching the Med is almost always a good move in the warm season.







Karstic plateau after the viaduct, hence the dryness





Off the highway

must be. Here's a few photos right near the boundary:

Looking towards the mountains



In a residential neighborhood in the hills:



Looks almost completely undeveloped from this angle (from a park in Vancouver):



boundary looks less stark here:

Feels and looks like autumn! Think I'll need an umbrella or a waterproof coat today, since the forecast is for heavy showers.



The field is also very green, after being yellowy and lifeless in July. The downside - the grass in my garden is now growing like crazy. Some leaves are yellow too.

It will only be a few more days before I have something worth photographing (I am not going to post pictures of stressed trees and claim that "fall colors" have started). But the change is getting VERY close here. Soybean fields are turning yellow and the woodlots are starting to get that yellowish look.
