Leaf, Grass
Tuesday Photo Challenge – Fall by Frank Jansen (Dutch goes the photo)

Soft light comes to us

It’s early fall here in New Jersey, perhaps too early to visit the Grandview section of the Rock Brook, but I hopped in the car and drove over to Hollow Road anyway Nope. Nothing. Not a single yellow leaf. Not on a tree. Not on the ground.

But some of the leaves have changed colour, not enough to be noticeable in the sea of green, but enough that some leaves have fallen off from the maple tree in the front yard. The heavy rainfall from the thunderstorm effects of Hurricane Dorian had drenched the tree knocking the yellow leaves onto the grass, the car and the driveway.

Bhavna and I went for a walk in Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve in Princeton. I was hoping to see some fall colour so I brought my camera and tripod. I found it but not where I expected. Many of the trees were either still in transition or had lost their leaves. I found fall colour beneath my feet.
