Autumn Moods

Heavy rain clouds alternating with bursts of sunlight created many different moods this evening.

The orange golden flames of maple trees light up the landscape

I follow this winding country road

savoring the play of light on the canvas laid out before me

As the clouds swallow the sun,

tree and fence

they cast a purple hue across the land.

A final glimpse of sunlight on the mountain, then evening descends.
