Fading Fall Flame
Photograph - Photograph
I thought autumn would arrive like a ton of bricks, this year. But after an initial snap, the season leveled out into a slower-than-usual, graceful progression of color, shortening days, and increasing chill. Unlike many years when colorful foliage vanishes almost completely after the first hard frost followed by the first wind storm, this year the color has been slipping away gradually. Out with the camera, I caught the brilliant glow of late afternoon light on a remaining patch of leaves against a dark wooded background. Fallís flame is fading, but today itís not yet out.
