Just Before the Leaves Fall

Autumnscene2010

Our next mission abroad is still some seventy days away, but this isn't the time of year to be away from our southern Appalachian home, anyway. These are the very final days before that last, crashing rainstorm blows out our leaves and blows in six months of brown and chill. Every day we walk around the farm wide-eyed, camera in hand, trying to will a few more of these beautiful, colorful days.

This photo is a seven exposure HDR, taken down at the bottom of our driveway, at the beginning of our lower pasture. It's displayed in the EarthPhotos.com Rural Life section and was taken precisely one year ago, in October 2010. Click it to make it much, much bigger.
