Autumn at Scott’s Run


On the continuing search for fall colour, my family went hiking around Scott’s Run, a Virginia trail we visit a couple of times a year.

Sure enough, quite a few of the leaves had turned, but the majority of the trees over twenty feet were still green.

There were a few high leaves that were starting to turn, though, which made a nice contrast against the blue sky.

Despite the forest being mostly green the trees full, much of the trail was covered in a light coat of fallen leaves.

As is typical of hikes I go on, I managed to find some wildlife to photograph. For today: a vivaciously lifeless slug.

Having neglected to bring my tripod, I improvised with a somewhat (although not entirely) flat rock to shoot the waterfall.
