Momiji 2015, autumn colors in Fukuoka

6:01 PM Béné (ベネ) 0 Comments

For me, autumn colors are something that ends with November. Or we will soon enter in December, which evokes the Christmas lights, and the autumn colors are still here. I feel a little lost, halfway between the desire to enjoy them again and the boredom of seeing the same scenery week after week. I want to move on but the atmosphere is Christmas-like yet with all these trees full of leaves.

As I said in my previous article, 2015 autumn colors are pretty disappointing because of the temperature which remained quite high until last monday when we had a big chill that still persists now.
Right now, the cherry trees have lost their leaves, ginckos are beginning to pluck but the advancement of maple trees is very different from one tree to another: some are still completely green, some are half and half, some are fully red and began to lose its leaves and some are still green on their upper branches while low one ar full with dead leaves.

So the scenery is not  as "wow" as past years and the walks are a bit disappointing : I don't know if it is too early or too late and how will it turns out next week ?
It is difficult to choose the best timing to go to take pictures so I decided to enjoy the present, to take walks over several weekends. It doesn't care if isn't perfect ! Here is the 2015 autumn in Fukuoka city.
