What treasures we find if we only turn and look.

“The Lichen Tree”, Settler’s Cabin Park

Is that awesome or what? There are so many colors of leaves in this one small area, but the lichen tree, as I named it, is actually completely dead and bare, is what really makes it for me. The sun had been covered by overcast as I traveled around photographing, so the colors had a special intensity as if they really needed to shine out of the darkness, and the shadows were denser than usual. It lends the scene an air of mystery, as if it’s an entry, or portal.

    1. Thank you! Out of all the autumn photos I took this year, and since I’m back on my feet I’m making up for lost time, this was my absolute favorite.
