I captured this image on the way to Raleigh, NC on Sunday. Although many of the leaves had fallen from the trees because of the weekend rain, enough remained to splash some vibrant color among the remaining branches of this golden hillside. You know, every Fall setting looks beautiful. The season's changes are one of my favorite things about living in the Midwest. The soft change of color usually beginning in very late September, peaking by that third week of October, always carries through to the very end of October. That represents almost 10% of the year for us. With our travels from north to south with the tour this year were are able to extend our enjoyment of the fall beauty to almost two months. A true blessing - just beautiful! Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 130mm, F5.6 @1/1250 second, ISO 400.
