Artist's Description

A single leaf has fallen,
It floats, so all alone,
In a lake filled with clouds.
Drifting along in quiet solitude. .
Perceiving that this is where it belongs
If only just for now. . .

I am thankful for simple pleasures. . .

My own photograph of clouds reflecting in the lake with a single leaf floating. Post processing in PSCS2 with a selective coloring technique on blending layers.
Shot in Canyon Lake, California. USA in the park across from where I once lived. We don’t have the extreme colors of Fall in my part of California, but a subtle change… This leaf was simple and beautiful against the grayness of the water… I hope my words convey the feelings that were summoned when I shot this photo.

I added the ripple so one could tell that it really is a reflection on the lake. That day the air was still and the water slick as silk…
