assorted views of a tie-dye leaf


Today is the autumnal equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere, and the official first day of fall. I am going to use this as an excuse to post more photos of leaves. (Though, actually, it’s just multiple photos of the same leaf. But still…)

I was quite taken by the range of colors and patterns that could be seen on the surface of the same leaf.

It had quite a range of textures, too.

And it glowed beautifully when held up to the light.

This was a maple leaf that I found in my mother-in-law’s yard last September. Coincidentally, this was actually September 22nd of last year, which turns out was the autumnal equinox last year.
