Today's image is titled color coordinated and was photographed by Ralph Grunewald.
Taken exactly one year ago today, this photo shows the surest sign of changing season. Grunewald describes the scene: "Fall is almost at its peak in and around Madison. This is on Langdon Street, and I was lucky not having a car behind me when I stopped and took out my camera. I have just read that the city council deliberates if the trees at some streets should be genetically modified so that the leaves turn white and red (Badger colors) in fall instead of Packer green and yellow."
As detailed in the fall color report from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, autumn foliage is currently at or past peak in the northern region of the state, and generally approaching peak levels through its central portions. In Madison, the foliage is at 25%-50% of peak levels, and is expected to peak within the next three weeks.
