“Sunlight through Yellow Leaves”
“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
― Lauren DeStefano
One of the beautiful effects of autumn is the glow of sunlight through changing leaves. My son referred to it a few days a ago as “looking like stained glass”. There are times when the forest glows in surreal colours, softly diffused in the air around us. It’s soothing and wonderful. This is one of the many reasons I try to get outside as much as possible at this time of year, even if only for a few minutes.
I set out this past weekend to capture some fall images. The trees here are just starting to show their colours, sometimes in single trees, and other times larger groves, though the colour change seems to be limited to the canopy and has not yet filtered to the lower leaves, keeping the forest interiors mainly green, for now.
The image above was mad at the trailhead, just outside my car. I really did not have to go far for this and several other images. I did send the next hour or so on the trail, mainly photographing mushrooms, as the forest was still quite green, with a few exceptions, like the yellow leaves above.
