Into the Woods

I'm paying more attention to the woods this year, especially as the seasons change. 

The leaves turn more slowly there - is it because the wind can't whip through as easily as it sweeps down tree lined streets downtown? Or does the mass of organic material keep the air warmer, prolonging fall? No idea. I don't mind keeping the color well past first-frost, though, 
so I'm not complaining :)

On a technical note, I removed four of the eight colors from these images. Can you tell which ones? Hint: these were taken with the color palette you get a few minutes after sunrise.
