Just finished this piece... Autumn in Evergreen... I often take a jog in the picturesque cemetery of Evergreen... The light there in the mornings and evenings is amazing ... All through the Fall I found myself increasingly drawn to the trees, in particular the leaves and their infinite range of fiery hues.... As October drew to a close and the temperatures dropped, the ground became a tapestry of leafy interwoven puzzle pieces... They inspired an idea!.... The following week I visited Evergreen I brought my Wife Sonia with me, along with a whole suitcase of clothes... Even though it was a bitterly cold Sunday morning we had such a great time with our photo shoot... once again the light was exceptional.... every shadow, mid-tone and highlight was alive... although by the end of it Sonia's complexion was showing the influence of the temperature.... It was time to pack up and go!
