Low Light, Fall Brilliance

The sun’s angle on the earth has shifted, sending rays of soft light through the native grass’ cloaks of color.

It really is beautiful.

    You captured the surreal beauty of a Sandhill’s autumn within a few photos of seeds and sun.

    Autumn, for me, is a strange time of joy and melancholy mixed.

    These photos have been only joy, so thank you for that.
