“The difference between darkness and brightness is how you thrive on those moments and how you use such circumstances with goodwill in your spirit.”
― Angelica Hopes
Here we are nearing the end of September, and the end of summer. I was surprised to see just how much colour change is already occurring not too far north of my home. As my family and I drove through the North hastings region of Ontario this past weekend, I especially noticed than some of the maples had already turned bright red. Sadly, I’m not sure what species of maple this is but it sure stood out.
I simply had to make an abstract of it. As with many of these, the finer details don’t get noticed till captured in a photo. I was subtly aware of the colour appearing in the undergrowth, but it really showed up in the photo. There was also a dead tree, bleached white by the sun, which really popped, especially in the photo.
This image is part of a small series I have posted over the past few days, all made within a few hundred meters of each other on Papineau Creek.
