One final flash of red

I didn't get out as often as I had hoped this year to capture the fall colors. Like most folks, I had the best of intentions, but my could-go times never aligned with the right time of day or the right weather or the right light conditions. And by the time everything came together, peak color had come and gone. 

Bummer, I know. But no one ever said this life thing followed a consistent script.

But the universe has an interesting way of salvaging what might have otherwise been. As I was walking back to my car on a damp afternoon last week, I came across this scene that in one last blast of color made up for my complete lack of lens time over much of the previous month.

Sometimes it takes a little extra time for the moment to present itself. Sometimes you just have to have a little patience.

Birdies can still get you some red, Carmi.

There's nothing like a Maple for giving you a thrill!

And sometimes the beauty if not where you looked for it, but right there as you rush by.
