I like the textures of fall foliage. I captured too much window frame in this picture, but I like the red leaves, the cedars in the background, and the seedy grasses. That fuzzy stuff on the left is goldenrod.
I used to dislike "barren" fall landscapes, but they aren't really. There's a lot going on in the fall, even when plants and trees look dead.
They are getting ready for another growing season already. No matter what the season, spring is coming!
