Autumn leaves

 

Last week I snapped a photo of a tree with yellow-orange leaves that glowed in the late afternoon sun.  I took that picture Friday as I left my office, and when I got to work again on Monday, that tree’s branches were almost completely bare.  A few moments later on Friday and I would have missed the sunlight; a few days later and I would have missed the leaves themselves.

Today was gray and wet.  It won’t be long until all the leaves have fallen.  I took a few pictures to remind myself of how pretty the colors are.

Because next week, who knows if they’ll still be around.
