The Season Ends
Here's another glimpse of my bike tour of the country roads near our home. I was struck by the forlorn sight of one leaf on the side of the road. The transience of this moment and moments like it - a dying leaf, a setting sun, an impossibly long shadow, a breeze just waiting to repaint the environment - stays with me as I look at this photo. While the surface beauty of a scene may be fleeting, its underlying beauty resonates in our heads for a significantly longer period of time.
