The texture of autumn
The gorgeous fall colors I've seen in the past couple of weeks have drawn me to focus on the textures of the earth. This combination of juniper and huckleberry bushes, taken by Clearwater Lake in the Swan Valley, is an example. The prickly green branches of the juniper set against the glowing red of the huckleberry leaves is a perfectly wrought woodland design. Had not a ray of late-afternoon sun touched this spot, I would have walked right by it on the trail.
More fall texture photos coming up; back to our spire photos down the road a piece...
