Imprint

Another perspective on fall


Leaf imprint a la Rothko

When it rains and there are leaves on the ground, the combination of the water and the deciduous foliage releases the lignin in the foliage and leaves behind an imprint of the leaf on the pavement. These pictures were taken at my parent's home in Virginia.
