Color in the Late of Autumn

November in New England is the Late of Autumn, when the residual colors of fall linger a bit more, and are gone before month's end. This year, the early autumn was rather subdued. None of the usual brilliant colors of past years, such as in my Autumn Hues posts from 2009 (Part 1 and Part 2).

This year, it seems that the colors peaked during the Late of Autumn.
