Ginko leaves blanket a tree

Years ago, I worked a NIU (Northern Illinois University) Every year for about one day each autumn, this sole ginko tree would shed its leaves gently overnight, and they would settle around the base of the tree, swaddling it in a blanket of greens & yellows. Taken with a Hasselblad 500 C/M with 100mm f/3.5 Planar lens on Kodachrome 64.

Gnarly bark leaning to the morning sun

Weather Caution

A sole individual braves a downpour amongst splashes of yellow, while even cars don't dare drive in the deluge.

Fog decending upon the sea

Iceland is known for its wild swings in weather. Just a little while before it was sunny, and then this bank of fog started rolling in down off the mountains towards the sea. The smooth stones you see here are actually the result of thousands of years of tidal action.
