In Search of Color



Following the magnificent sunrise I went in search of autumn foliage. Although by the calendar we have entered autumn, we are currently in the midst of an unusually hot dry spell. Our daytime highs have been hovering around 90 degrees with no measurable precipitation since late August. Combine this with the gypsy moth damage we experienced back in June and we have the perfect recipe for a lack-luster fall.

While walking along an old forest road the vivid colors and textures of these leaves illuminated by the morning sun shining through them caught my eye. The strong natural backlighting provided me with another “Country Capture”

Glad to see there is a bit of Fall in your unseasonal heat wave. A perfect country capture.

Breathtaking! So Beautiful! We are expecting some cooler weather here later this week - so hopefully it will head up your way too.

I woke up to rain and mist this morning, must admit to rolling back over for a while. I like this capture very much, the colours and light are very catching.
