“The Beech Beyond”

“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.” 
― Jim Bishop

I enjoyed the variability of this image. The relatively sharp maple tree in the foreground is contrasted by the almost wispy texture of the interwoven beech shrubs beyond it. It’s the beeches that I was most fascinated with, as they gradually transition to their coppery winter tones. There are still a few hints of green, but that will be short-lived.

This past autumn has afforded images like this, as the change for summer to autumn progressed slowly, allowing me to witness subtle changes that I had not witness before. Despite being able to get on the trails only on weekends, the changes have been so slow that pockets of each stage seemed to linger for weeks.

In this image, there was actually a bit of mid-morning fog that swirled in the underbrush, creating an even more dream-like image, lit from within by the orange glow of the beech beyond. The fog is, of course the result of the cooler morning temperatures as I continue this “Shift to Shiver” series
