Do you ever feel like autumn just sets the natural world aglow? Walk through the woods on a sunny autumn day, especially as the shadows begin to grow longer, and it feels like nature has simply pushed the white balance of the entire world toward “warm.” It envelopes you… and makes you feel as though every leaf, every twig, every weedy stem is an ethereal thing of beauty. Of course, it’s also quite a transient state, as well. As soon as the light changes, the same scene ceases to hold the magic it did just moments earlier. The trick is to be there the moment the magic happens, and focus. Hope you enjoy…
