Photo taken TODAY of Swamp Maples turning near my home in SE MA. Colors are beautiful....colors not enhanced. It's not unusual for these swamp maples to turn this early, and it's not a predictor for an early Fall.....rather it's a very good sign of good things to come.

Sooooooo........I just went into my archives to see what date I shot these swamp maples last year. It was September 22nd and they were NOT as vibrant as they are this year. I'm not sure this really means anything, or is a predictor for early colors, as last September the temperatures here were very HOT. But it's still interesting nonetheless. Hmmmmm.

September 22, 2018.......First day of Fall last year.

ok.... I'll say it. It is going to be a good year. Better yet, a very good year. I'm on record now!

(don't you just "feel" it?)

colors look dull, but its way early--saw some swamp maples around Sept 20th years ago, and they were amazing

Wentworth,
I can tell you these colors were not dull at all in person. I was shooting into the sun and the only thing I can think of is I shot this into the sun due to the time of day, so I adjusted the contrast in post processing. Maybe that's why they look dull to you. They really are vibrant this year. Hope this helps.
