The Story

This unusual lay of colorful oak and ash leaves on black water can be visually confusing in this beautiful close-up image of Fall. Black water in complete stillness fills an old railroad ditch along a rail trail to make a natural black mirror. It reflects the spread of bare tree limbs and trunks above as sunset nears. Some of the recently fallen leaves lie floating on top of the still dark water, but many more have sunk below the surface over time. Here they are, caught and suspended between above and below.

The life of a leaf: from sunny summer green to a slow fade into a deep black.
