This fall season was a weird one. While it seemed like prime weather for good fall colors it never quite got there, at least here locally. There were still glimpses of those peak fall colors, though. I took this photo here in my backyard and it was the peak colors of this maple leaf that first caught my eye. Looking closer, I liked the color contrast between the rest of the leaf litter and green shubbery. I've been taking mostly black and white photos lately but sometimes color is the only way to go.
