Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

The seasons of descent are upon us … tree branches almost bare after recent winds forced the descent of the last of the multi-colored leaves, while the hint of winter is in the air, with snow flurries descending upon us even before trick-or-treaters graced our doorsteps.  I am not quite ready to let go of my favorite season, but I do enjoy the unique beauty that each season brings.  Walking the grassy trails with the dogs recently, I noticed this single maple leaf, an isolated beauty nestled among parched aspen leaves past their golden prime.

  1. Lovely capture Kat–good eye. I see were were on the same train of thought about the change of seasons. I too cling stubbornly to the warmth as winter inevitably arrives. Of course, it DOES make us appreciate the summer and fall, doesn’t it 😊

  2. I can so relate to your post, Kat. Most all of the trees are bare except our Japanese maple. I welcome its bright color against the gray sky that we have been having lately.
