Ah, leaves. I don't know why I like taking pictures of lone leaves so much, but... I seem to have taken a few.
This one I found in my favorite way: on a completely random hike. Friday was bright and sunny, so I headed north. Along 41 just beyond the giant snow thermometer, I looked to the left and saw a big, bald, snowy hill rising through the trees. I'd never seen it before, so I pulled over, grabbed my snowshoes and camera, and headed into the woods. Sure enough, there was a foothill of the cliffs in the middle of the trees, and it had been recently logged -- so it was a big, bald, snowy hill. The sun was bright, and this leaf was just rolling around like a kid in a puddle! Check out the colors in the shadow -- straight out of the camera. Yay!
