The leaves here are just beginning their annual fall change. I went for a short autumn color reconnaissance hike on Friday. Although the main show in the Gorge is still a few weeks away, I did find a few nice golden leaves brightening up the forest.
Trying to get back in the swing of the 52 Photos Project, I noticed the week's meme is Gold. This lovely little leaf, backlit by the sun became a perfect subject.
I'm looking forward to prowling the mountains and Gorge and capturing more wonderful fall hues yet to come. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, check out the 52 Photos Project for more gorgeous autumn scenes.
