WHat particularly drew me to this scene were the patterns of light and shadow on the rocks and leaves. This photo was taken on an Autumn afternoon in South Mountain State Park, NC. Figuring out a way to get from one slippery and mossy rock to another in order to take the photo was a real challenge too-especially carrying tripod and camera equipment.
