Hickory Yellow

Traditionally, red leaves get most of the glory in the fall*, but don’t forget the yellows of beeches and hickories in the sunshine. A sight on the Jerome Wetlands Trail in Van Cortlandt Park: giant and youngsters of different Carya species. (Reproduced a little too orange above by the phone camera, though.)This image, with a camera camera, looks more like it. But there is no substitute for the human eyes.

*This weekend, many a leaf in Green-Wood came down in the cold snap green, as if fall hadn’t happened.
