Fallen Red Deciduous Leaves

Russ Nature Reserve, Beavercreek, Ohio

"Nature is stronger than all human priorities.” - Marty Rubin

This is a sprawling abstraction of fallen red deciduous leaves towards the end of Autumn. Gently placed underneath a nearly bare tree by this point. The leaves were neatly placed in a perfect circle around the trees circumference. The middle of Autumn sports the best colors that nature can offer. A week before this photograph, the colors and layout would be all too different. A week after and the leaves would turn brown with decay.

I would consider this a pretty early photo in my backlog, and one of my favorites still. The bright colors and repetitive patterns (in a good way) make this photo work. Some images are just begging to be printed large!
