I had parked my car by the side of the road on this fall afternoon to explore in the woods. After an hour or so tramping through the aspens, looking for good compositions, I gave up and returned to the car. As I was opening the car door, I looked down on the shoulder of the road and saw this. It is said that the camera looks both ways, and I think this image is a good example of this truism. What wonderful surprises wait for us when we keep our eyes open and have a positive attitude of expectation. I wonder if anyone else saw this beautiful image that day?
