Autumn colors are at their vibrant best when framed against an azure blue sky. But this morning the sky was anything but blue. Foghorns sounded out on Lake Huron. Drizzle sputtered against the window panes. Distant fog shrouded the landscape.
Yet the red of this maple fairly pops out of this image. By evening, about one third of the leaves on this tree had fallen. The foggy maple will look very different tomorrow.
