Pic(k) of the Week: Fallen allée

Fallen allée

It was only an afterthought.

Mucked from rains the day before, the unfinished Peavine Creek trail was a side-creek of mud. I climbed from the narrow woodland to a neighborhood street in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. I turned around and saw the scene: an allée of trees and fallen aureate leaves waiting to be framed.

What I snapped then was, by far, my best shot of that hike. Sometimes, I think I'm getting a bit closer to getting it — the photography thing, that is. I have my older brother —a real photographer— to thank for that.

Slow down for the trees.
