The shale along the shore of the Vermilion River fascinates me no matter how many times I see and photograph it. It’s especially appealing when decorated with leaves.

Thank you, Jessica. I’m sure you’ve seen shale fracture like this. I love how moisture collects in the cracks.

The leaf makes it, its such a focal point – wonderful image.

Thanks, Adrian. That the leaf is red doesn’t hurt, does it.

It would hurt if it weren’t red!!! 😉

WOW! What a great find!

Thanks, Ken. As fall progresses, these red leaves will be easier and easier to find, but they won’t all be on such nice sections of shale.

Fantastic! Those patterns of wetness are so indistinct, but the red leaf has such clarity – it’s a great duet.

Thanks, Lynn. As usual, you make me think about my photograph in a new way.

It would have been a good abstract without the leaf, but the leaf is a wonderful addition. Perfectly positioned in the frame.

Thank you, Andy. I did crop a little in processing.

Beautiful!, the red leaf activates the rest of the composition..

Oooh, I like your description, Harrie. Thanks.

Cool, like a landscape shot from a satellite …but the leaf changes all…
Kind regards, Jürgen
