Frosty Morning

Late autumn, and most of the leaves have already fallen. Those leaves still hanging on become a canvas for frost through the evening, and the first rays of sunlight wipes the canvas clean again.

Only for a brief period of time can you enjoy the beautiful painting that the late autumn wind brings.

This was photographed beside one of the few remaining buildings of the abandoned village of Josephine, along the North Simcoe Rail Trail. There was frost over everything, from dead flowers to rusty nails. However, the backlighting on my leaves kept catching my eye.

Photographed near Barrie, Ontario.
