It's a texture thing

I am intrigued and amazed at how a tree will grow out the side of a mountain or along the side of a river/creek bed. As the leaves have been falling I find myself studying the forms of trees. The texture of the bark, the branches and root system. When you walk through the woods in the fall and winter you experience all the senses: visual, sound, smell, touch and even taste.

Experiencing the smell of the woods, the pines, the dried leaves, the sound of the leaves as they crunch beneath your feet. This time of year, the animals are tucking away acorns and apples are harvested, these are the tastes of fall. The touch of the bark  and the visual is everywhere, the sky is different, the colors crisper, the air clearer, the constant change in colors from greens moving into reds, oranges, yellows, burnt sienna and burnt umber.

Winter is less then a month away, take time to enjoy each season no matter how small the changes.
