Here we have a white oak in an overgrow field near the Cumberland River. By this time last year, it would be in full, but young, bright green leaf.
This time last year, the forest itself would be a multitude of shades of green light and green shadow. This year, it appears as multi-hued as an impressionist painting endeavoring to capture the light through contrasting colors.
No, this is not an autumn scene, this is late April in middle Tennessee.
