Couldn’t Leave this Alone

We have trees in our back yard. The birds like them and I like them. In addition to providing shade and shelter during the summer they also give us lots of leaves in the fall.

Last fall the color in the leaves was really spectacular. Capturing the colors I saw with my eyes was frustratingly hard because direct sun had too much glare and the shade was too uneven.

As I was raking the leaves and putting them in recycle bags I glanced in one bag and saw all these wonderfully rich colors, shaded from direct sun by the side of the bag and evenly illuminated by the clear blue sky above. Enjoy!

Cheers – DJD

Rain for the week: 1.5 in.    Year to date: 13.5 in.
