The Last Flicker of Fall
Fall has come and past in the Northwoods. Most of the wild places in the north are now silent, covered in layers of snow and ice. Fall is a time of exquisite beauty as the colored leaves transform even the most mundane of landscapes into something extraordinary. Undoubtedly, it is an incredible site to see a hillside in Appalachia covered flaming oranges and reds, or the reflection of golden aspens on a river with large snow-covered mountains in the background. However, fall is also beautiful at a smaller scale. Indeed, the mosaic of colors while peering into a thick forest, or the yellow and green of the marsh grass, or the beauty of the sunlight weaving its way through the canopy and illuminating the colors below can warm even the hardest of individuals. Here is my poor attempt to capture the beauty of fall at this “small scale”, I hope it stirs the same emotions in you as it did in me when I took the photographs.
