As we enter 2023 and plunge into the coldest, bleakest months of the year, here is an homage to one of the glories of late fall.
In this image, we can hear nature’s breath on this windy fall day, as twigs cross over twigs in front of a rich background of textures and colors. The “hero” leaf - in the shape of a heart - holds on for dear life, its edges already dry and crispy. Almost a memory. Soon, all these golds and greens and oranges will flutter to the ground, leaving bare, gray-brown bones to fend off the sleet and snow.
