Early Saturday morning I walked through Deep Run Park in Henrico County, Virginia. I wanted to be there while that magical, early morning light blanketed the trees and whatever I might find beneath them. I nearly passed this scene but fortunately stopped long enough to notice it.
These wildflowers already lost most of their pedals before I took this photograph. I wanted to capture the bright yellow of the flowers against the backdrop of the red vine leaves climbing the tree in the background.
Hiking through the woods I found this single, orange leaf that had fallen into a sea of brown. It struck me as quite a standout and a good candidate for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge topic “Solitary”.
