Life goes on. The earth continues to spin, the northern hemisphere tilts away from the sun. In this view of our little valley, taken ten days after the last post, the rusty trees are deepening and leaves fall with every breeze. Evergreens provide a handsome contrast to the russet colors. Also, it is evident that the grass is going dormant as well, becoming more golden with each passing week.
Here’s a shot of the ridge to the left, with its yellow poplars, red oak and beech trees. As I mentioned last week, the last rays of the day illuminate it just before sunset.
