Picture of Norway maple leaves (Acer platanoides) with fall / autumn colors
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera October 19th 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture you can see some Norway maple (Acer platanoides) leaves that I photographed this autumn. I really like the shape of maple leaves and with autumn colors they can be a stunning sight. The sun were shining through the tree tops unto the leaves so I just had to take a picture of them.
The autumn colors are almost gone now so it is nice to able to look some pictures and remember how nice it was.
The Norway maple is the only type of maple tree that is native to Norway. The maple trees grow in the southern part of Norway where the climate is a bit warmer.

Check out my other photo from the same trip of the forest floor covered with leaves and my other autumn pictures here. Note: This photo was taken in the southeastern part of Norway.

    Thomas- I really enjoy the wide perspective on this shot. Norway Maples were commonly planted in the Eastern U.S. and now they are escaping and becoming invasive in our forests, especially in Urban areas like those here in Columbus. Very interesting to see it “across the pond” where it is native. Great image.

    I agree with you, Thomas. I, too, like the shape of maple leaves. This is a very cheerful looking shot.

    Hi Rob! How are things going? Maple trees are really nice to photogrpahy. I have mostly oak trees here on Long Island.
