Divine Design

I’d arranged some free time to take a quiet hike along the Grand River. It was a beautiful day, overcast but bursting with shades of fall in the crisp afternoon air. I stepped from the trail to examine a fallen tree, gnarled and weathered shades of sun-bleached gray concealing a punch of colour nestled within. Red, orange and yellow waves of an inner light radiating outwards across a monochromatic backdrop. I ponder the moments when each broke free from captivity, falling on the autumn wind before congregating in this nook. A series of seemingly random acts so divinely orchestrated.

Images were captured in October 2022, Claude Dubrick Trail along the Grand River, Waterloo, Ontario.

      Thanks Fandango. Sorry for the late reply. It has been a busy week. I didn’t have my camera so those were from my phone. Still, they turned out alright.

      Thank you for your comment. It was a great walk. It’s only been 11 days since I took those and the colours of leaves that are left on the tree are now much more muted with a lot of brown creeping in. They only dazzle for a short time.
