Shadow Shots: Morning Glory

Autumn Dawn


I don't often see the dawn, not being much of a morning person. But I'm glad I didn't miss this today: Our old maple breathing in light, like a swimmer's face rising from the sea of shadows.

Just a few minutes later, the sun lit up the far woods at the other end of the world:
 


Morning Glory


The light here in fall is glorious, made all the more precious by the knowledge that it cannot stay for long. br />

Gorgeous foliage! In southern New England, due to the very warm March, the buds were earlier and alas, the leaves are falling. But we take solace in the bold yellow, red and orange hues prior to their falling. Sweet and I an glad the morning for that shot...

Ah...and that is why I am a morning person (that and its the only time I can be left allow from the 4 animals known as my daughters)
I love the vivid contrast of red, orange and deep green pine.
Wonderful.
Cheers,
