"Fall colour tour" Dorset by sim1

Dorset Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 19 photos

Finally... a sunny day! I've been waiting for some time now for a good opportunity to go on a 'fall colour tour', and I wasn't disappointed. Wow, what a colours! The trees seemed to be on fire at some times, the colours are so vibrant! It's just beyond belief. I love the colours of the fall, and I heard it must be beautiful in Canada, and they are so right, it's beautiful and spectacular.

    wow... nothing like Fall (Autumn) to see some amazing colour. How did you see so much contrast... wonderful - snow and colour. Spectacular. Nature at its finest and well captured. Never thought about it before, but thanks for telling me about 'why'.

    Beautiful colours Simone (and thanks for the nature lesson on leaf colours!). I am terrified of heights too. That tower looks only slightly less terrifying than the perspex floor on the observation deck of the CN Tower!

    Excellent pictures, Simone. The bright yellow colour leaves are my favourite. Fall is my favorite season of the year

    Simone ~ I can hardly believe how fantastic the fall colours have been captured in these photos. It's unreal! And, yes, the snow came too early (and stayed too late!). :-)

    I love fall! My favorite time of the year. I would skip summer all together and go right from spring to fall! Great pictures!
