A Matter of Time

On my way home from work on a November Saturday afternoon when I get off early and there is still some light. I crest the top of a hill just as the last weak rays of the sun slip in under clouds blue with rain. In the distance, a tree in a last show of fall color, is caught in the sun like a deer in headlights.

There is nothing particulally dramatic here, just a feeling really. Another week and the grass will be brown and the leaves will all be gone. It happens so fast. Fall colors only last a few weeks, the sunlight, sliding in under the clouds, is gone in a matter of minutes. It’s about time, or more acurately, timing; being at the right place at the right time. Oh, and you need to have your camera with you.
