Fall is truly here; the mornings are misty, the evenings darken earlier. Each day the colors shift; some glowing, some dimming as the season moves on. This little island is always a fleeting splash of color early in the fall. It is one of those spots just along the road and the light is such that for the few days of its glory you could stand there for hours watching the play of light as the sun passes by. Knowing how it only lasts a few days I made sure to stop one morning and grab a few shots. It sits like a little jeweled box in the pond, quietly putting on a show for those who glance over.
