Red/Foilage [Nurture Photography]


Red/Foilage [Nurture Photography]
Another advantage here in CO are the varities of leaf colors, one of my personal favorite colors for trees is Red! I just read a book to my kiddo on why tree leaves vary in color from one another and thought I would post this tid bit here for you as well:
 
Where do leaf colors come from? Leaf color comes from pigments. Pigments are natural substances produced by leaf cells. The three pigments that color leaves are:
  • chlorophyll (green)
  • carotenoid (yellow, orange, and brown)
  • anthocyanin (red)
Then I found this website that has a list of trees and their corrisponding leaf colors!
Take a peek HERE
