Amazing Nature

Sometimes I like to take a simple object of nature and really focus on it.  This simple cabbage leaf is so intricate. It really looks like a Tree of Life in one single leaf !
Nature is truly amazing.

I hiked to the top of Linville Gorge about an hour before sunset during my fall color expedition earlier this month. Of course there were just as many monochrome opportunities!

Dying Tree Fungus and Decay Composition 1

This dying tree caught my eye while walking through a local greenway. Whether its old barns, houses, antiques or dying trees, there is always transience of life and beauty to be appreciated in decay.
