December’s Last Light

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “December’s Last Light” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Slowly the shadows emerge earlier and stay longer. In just three days the night will linger longer than any other day this year. And yet as I pulled into my driveway I saw saw it. The last colorful leaves on my property. Several years ago I made the decision to allow nature to be in charge of the erosion control along the banks of the creek in front of my house. As a result, nature gifted me with an apple tree. I’m not sure yet what variety of apple it will turn out to be but it’s definitely an apple. In the very top of the tree the bright red leaves caught the last rays of the the sleepy sun as it faded behind the mountain. As I admired the crimson glow in the growing shadows it reminded me of a candle in a window standing against the darkness.

Red Oak And Blue Sky

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Red Oak And Blue Sky” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Salmon Run Road is all but abandoned this time of year. There was one person out walking for his health and a few boaters were much farther down the road but that’s far less than summer. I went to see the empty lake bottom and some of the abandoned foundations of the flooded civilization that used to be there. The barren landscape would be a great analog to Mars in some places. ( Photos to be posted at a later time)

On the way back out I spotted the Red Oak clinging tightly to its last few clumps of leaves. The red in contrast with the blue sky was a very soothing sight after the dry lake bed. I rolled down the window and soaked in the cool breeze and fresh air. Small buntings hop about through the denser twigs. Only the rattle of dry leaves gives away their presence as they hunt. A sudden gust of wind sweeps through the leaves on the ground get up and dance before coming to rest in the duff of the forest floor. For a few minutes I forgot that I was stopped in the middle of a public road until another truck was coming in sight from the other direction and it was time to move on.

Autumn Journey

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Autumn Journey” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The wind carries the fallen leaves to the tracks that cross the Kanawha River. The peak color was just starting to wane as I gaze across the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. The hills seem to rejoice in their beautiful celebrationlebration of the season. The tracks call to me with an invitation to come and explore the seldom seen wonders that are hidden beneath a vibrant canopy of warm colors. Beyond the river and behind the houses a moss laden forest houses thick clumps of ferns, old stumps that full of mushrooms and twisted vines wrapped around old growth oaks. The mists hang around the grove like a curtain and provide a perfect sanctuary. That’s where the big buck lives. His crown bares 12 tines and his hot breath billows like the stack on and old train. Silently he patrols the grove warding off all rivals. He charges up and stops just short of the tracks that mark the edge of his realm. The big buck gives a defiant snort and us soon off into the misty woods. What wonders these hills hold indeed.

Spilled Treasures

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Spilled Treasures” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

My breath condenses in the air and curls upwards as carefully step through bushes. I’m trying not to alarm any wildlife by snapping a twig. I slowly set the ball of my foot on the forest floor with a rolling motion and pay close attention to the sensation of the earth beneath me before settling my heel. My eyes alternate from the forest around me to the ground in front of me. The ground is carpeted in tones of gold, scarlet, maroon and green. The colorful scene laid out before me brings to mind thoughts of a treasure chest that has spilled out and scattered it’s riches across the landscape. All things in this world are temporary. Treasure fades into rust and the wind carries it away to parts unknown. Light dims into a soft glow on the horizon. For a while the forest will sleep under the pale of the moon. But this is only temporary and the colors which fell to the ground and soaked into the earth will be reborn as flowering of Spring.

Red And Gold In November

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Red Maple 111019″and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

A warm breeze caresses the forest as I step out to the edge of civilization and embrace the real world. The leaves are becoming more scarce now and most of branches carry only a few stragglers. The blood red leaves on a few of the younger maples have stayed longer than most. The younger trees tend to hold their leaves longer and it’s not unusual for beech and sycamour to keep their leaves until Spring. This particular red maple started the Fall with a rich golden tone and slowly transitioned into a velvety red with just the right amount of yellow to make it like gold dust settled on them. Or perhaps some woodland sprite visited the tree and sprinkled the gold as she flew past it. I marvel only for a moment and a lull in the wind allows me to catch the beautiful colors before they finally fade away.
