Golden Girl

Deep into November, autumn is all around us. I went looking for an image to define the season and found this one shared by Mathias (full name not given) under creative commons. The intense golden glow coupled with the woman’s stillness and peace stole me with its beauty.

I can only imagine what it was like to be in the woods that day after reading the photographer’s note:

After a 10 minute walk, we thought we’d stumbled upon a fiery version of wonderland: the light filtering through the leaves just before midday was breathtaking. I have never seen a profusion of incredible light like this anywhere before…We just sat down on some tree trunk to gawk. It seemed every leaf was glowing from within.
