About Today’s Photo:
When seasons bump up against each other, lovely photo opportunities exist. The snowpack in the woods up at Sleepy Hollow Ski Center are strewn with red oak leaves as the last of these late droppers continue to shed their coppery foliage. I was particularly drawn to the drops of water—melted snow—on the surface of the leaves.
