Leaves fill the air

Recent strong winds blew remaining leaves off the tress near my house. The air was filled with multi-colored leaves that swirled all around me. It was a sight to behold!

This photo shows leaves filling the sky as the wind blew them high above the tree tops. I can't say that I've seen this happen before. This moment would have been so easy to miss. In photography, timing can often be everything.

Where the roads converge

Dirt roads are entirely underrated. They are usually free of heavy traffic, they can lead to unexpected finds and are relaxing to navigate. Unlike asphalt, traces are left from every creature who crossed your path. I like to think of it as a cross-species journal of sorts, entries are left in the form of foot prints.

Dusk at Franklin Farm

This photo was taken at Franklin Farm as the sun was setting over the ridge. Walking distance from the silos shown in the last post, this shot was taken later the same week. Sunset during fall often provides softer light with hints of graduated colors.

Loudoun experienced first snow fall of the 07-08 season on Thursday morning. Driving along Route 601 from Clarke to Loudoun county was a bit of a white out. Nothing stuck, but what a sight to see in early November.
