Steve's sycamore is showing us that fall is here. The leaves have taken on a decidedly more yellowish cast, and have begun to fall. You can see some of them on the ground below the tree (remember to click on the picture for a larger view).
This picture was taken on the first full day of autumn, September 23. I think the afternoon light is especially beautiful this time of year--and even more so into October and November. My challenge will be to try to capture some of that beauty for the blog as we move deeper into my favorite season.
Fall always feels like a new beginning for me--maybe because so much of my life has revolved around academic calendars.
