in praise of autumn
The audacious color of these oak leaves still stuns me.
That leathery brown-gold of beech leaves in fall is a color-and-texture I look forward to each year.
But then, if you have not seen tamaracks in their golden dress in autumn, you really cannot imagine how absolutely fine they are. To be a day-long bystander (or bear, or Boreal Chickadee) in the north country at this time of year...now that is a visual feast.
