As we approach the peak of Fall Colors in my little slice of Appalachia I am looking through my archive to get an Idea of the timing and places where I’ll find opportunity for a nice shot. I found a photo from last year that somehow escaped publication.
I remember the day I took the picture. The weather was warmer than usual and I was out enjoying the sunshine before the long dark nights of winter. The light filtered through the canopy just right to illuminate the leaves and make them look like living flames. The land drops off at the base of the tree and down in the ravine I can hear the squirrels scurrying around in the leaves. Occasionally I see the squirrels running through the canopy in an arboreal game of tag. They race along the amber hued branches and down the trunk of the adjoining tree. They plowed through piles of fallen leaves raising a clamor in the otherwise silent forest. I lost sight of them several times only to see them pop up in a distant clump of colorful leaves.
Sunny Fall days are meant to be enjoyed and there’s no better form of play than causing a rukus in the fallen leaves.
