Gold and copper

Beech trees are some of the late fall holdouts—keeping a tenacious grip on their leaves sometimes all the way through the winter. I love the way their leaves shift from green to gold to copper and then, sometimes, to ghostly bleached white in the wintertime.

We were walking in the woods behind the house yesterday afternoon when we came across some uniquely veined maple leaves on the snow-dusted forest floor. One tree in particular had an inkling to stand out…

Back to the season at hand… Yesterday afternoon offered some interesting shooting opportunities with low, brooding clouds and intermittent bursts of sunshine. This view up Camel’s Hump Road towards Bald Hill and Wind Gap conveys the mood of the day’s high elevation snowfall.

Autumn fire

I was up at Windekind Farm yesterday morning looking for good subjects to shoot—not a hard thing to find this time of year! These burning red maple leaves were at the edge of the woods and meadow. Autumn’s fire indeed!

The Moultrop Family Farm in Richmond has piles of tasty squash for sale at their farmstand. Baked acorn squash with butter and a splash of maple syrup. Yum!

First the red leaves caught my eye, then I spotted the curlicued shadow of an adjacent weed. Lucky angle!
