October Featured Landscape and Desktop Calendar: “Red” Red, photo Sometimes the scene is just visually stunning, especially with a little flash of angled late afternoon sun on that bright red Virginia Creeper. Love the peeling paint, the weathered wood, gentle dappled and reflected autumn light, cloudy windows and rusty chipping door hinge. Yet the creeper and the old garage have their own ways of fading into a new season: the plant flashes its brilliance before it fades after its one season of life, while the building fades though it gathers and carries memories from year to year. Even though the autumn landscape is one big beautiful scene, this is my favorite iconic autumn photo for its contrasts and its focus on one small portion of the season. And that shade of red.
