Last look at the Medway Valley

Color wherever you look
London, ON
October 2011
Thematic. Leaves. Here.
Thought I'd squeeze in one last shot for Thematic's leaves theme before we launch our new one, eat, at 7 p.m.

There isn't anything particularly challenging about pointing a lens in the general direction of a stand of trees in autumn. However you compose it - assuming you even bother to compose it at all - you're virtually guaranteed enough color to justify the effort.

Still, this one stuck with me. It wasn't that the colors were particularly bright - they weren't. Or that this will ever become remotely worthy of being framed. It won't. It was simply that of all the pictures I took that late afternoon, this is the one that takes me right back to the place I took it.

I don't get out nearly as often as I'd like, and posting this shot here serves as a reminder that I need to change that no matter what season it is, or how busy I convince myself that I am. There's always time to duck out for a little inspiration from Mother Nature. Our souls need the time away from the everyday.

Your turn: This photo will inspire me to get out more often, and I hope it does the same for you. Where will you go when you step out the door?
