Fall color is suppose to be at it’s peak this weekend here in Ohio. Luckily I am off this weekend. I attempted to get a head start on photographing the color today but failed.
The color of the trees was majestic this morning in a cloudy sunrise.
There were two factors at play:
- just enough sunlight coming through the clouds
- just enough of the night’s darkness remaining
Under these conditions the tree’s color took on a deep, rich jewel-tone brilliance. The skyline of the woods behind my house consisted of topaz, rubies, citrines, and peridot, with a few emeralds strategically placed in God’s sunrise. The depth of the trees color came through in a way you do not see during the stark light of day.
What a blessing from God.
Thank you God for revealing your treasure chest of jewels in the trees this morning.
