After dropping my wife off at school the other day I stopped to marvel at the first frost of the season. I clutched the ground, and was creating some marvelous patterns on the piles of fallen Autumn leaves. Thanks to the urging of a neighbor 1 I already had a lens on my camera, so I picked up my Nikon and headed out into the frosty air to capture some photos 2.
My favorite image from this exploration is below. A single frosted leaf, clinging to a last moment beauty long after its Fall glory has faded to brown.
