Autumn Foliage Reflection and Leaf Smoky Mountain National Park Tennessee

I remark to my wife, Deb, quite often about the desire to take photographs that are uniquely different ways of presenting scenes in Nature. Images most folks might not see. When I capture one that I think is successful, I rave to her about it. The conversation goes like this…

“Well, if you like it so much, print it and display it at the next art show.”

“No, I don’t have the courage. People will think it’s weird and it will never sell.”

She usually rolls her eyes at this point.

This is one of those images. It’s a reflection of yellow Autumn color, lit by afternoon sunshine, on the opposite bank of a river in the Smoky Mountains. Floating by on the gentle current is a single leaf.

It’s one of my faves from the past year.
