Walking into Autumn

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 4 November 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Captured in the Maple Grove Forest Preserve in Downers Grove, Illinois on October 25, 2014.

Leaves were starting to fall at a fast pace, as if it was "raining" leaves. It's hard to point out all of the falling leaves, but one can be seen behind the woman's head. Here, the path has already been covered by the maple leaves as opposed to yesterday's post.
