The Quiet Side of Autumn

I was in the backyard this afternoon watching the sun play on the leaves that are left on the trees and noticed that the colors are actually quieting down.  I think of autumn as riotous oranges, reds, and rusts but observed there are lot of gray tree branches with pale yellow, almost white leaves clinging to their branches. The leaves on the ground, pale browns and creams. It was a surprise to realize I'd always overlooked this aspect of fall.  The following photos celebrate this understated, peaceful side of the changing season.

The Last of Autumn

We still have quite a few leaves left on the trees in the East Tennessee Valley although I know a lot of the nation is welcoming winter as I write.    This artwork is dedicated to the last cool crisp days before Old Man Winter makes his presence known.
