Splendor of Autumn's colors

This is the beauty of Michigan's Fall colors. It is a Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum) in full color. Since it was October in the Upper Peninsula, I didn't know what to expect. This tree was a heck of a surprise to me. I love the different hues of the leaves against the grey and white of the bark
