A couple photos from this morning!
There are two trees in my front yard that both lose their leaves. One kind turns a shade of golden orange that is absolutely iconic of Autumn, the other a light brown. Looking out the widow gives a striking visual of half the yard covered in each color with a distinct transition in between.
I attempted to capture that in the first photo, but the narrower field of view of the image compared to what you see in person didn't really convey what it was intended to show. Also it's overcast today so the colors didn't come out on camera accurate to real life, both types of leaves look brown here. I still like the picture though. The other photo is of a part of the driveway which just has one of the kinds of leaves on it. Again, unfortunate the color doesn't pop in the image like it does in person.
All that beautiful ground cover reminded me of this other photo that I had shared a few years back and thought I would repost.
This represents a specific Fall memory that is very special to me. This is the location where I had a true storybook Autumn experience long ago. It was genuinely straight out of what you would picture as the perfect representation of this time of year. The moment really struck me, I even posted about it
at the time, and that image has always stayed with me and I regretted not going back the next day with a camera.
Many years later I was able to finally capture an approximation of that scene I recalled so fondly. The number of leaves on the ground here is significantly fewer than were blowing around on that original day, but this at least makes the memory more tangible.
