Fall Colors

Walked along FR181/American Spring Road today.  As I neared my car, I was struck by the bright color of these apples that someone dumped at the side of the road.

On the theme of fall colors, here's some that aren't.  I took this photo in June at a meadow along FR181/American Spring Road.  At first I thought it was a firefighter's boot tossed into the tree.  When I got closer, I saw that someone had thrown a piece of ugly, orange metal into the tree to use for target practice.  That's a mean thing to do to pretty aspen!!  Today, I thought I'd try to knock the trash down (without killing myself).  First, I found on the ground some long branches and then tried, several times, to push the metal out of the tree but it's hooked so securely over a branch that I couldn't do it.
