Nature is Confused

I made these images when I noticed that we have new growth on some plants at the same time that some leaves are changing colors and dropping.  Nature is quite confused by our changing climate. 

I have been experimenting with Olympus TG-6 out-of-camera B&W images and using a yellow filter with Lightroom (LR), but these are shown differently.  These are raw files and using LR to convert them using the Adobe colors and no other adjustments made by me in LR.

I have been working on finding a scheme for producing B&W images, but I keep also looking at them in color.  I haven’t decided when/if I might predominantly use color vs. B&W.  It will probably be determined by the subject.
