I love this picture. Taken in my backyard November 8th, 2008. The late afternoon sun and clouds set up a strong contrast between the bright tree and the murky buildings — so I went and found my camera. (It was fairly dim out and this was a long exposure, hence the breeze-driven blurriness of the leaves.)
I suppose there’s a science angle here about xanthophyll or something, but … who cares! I don’t have to spoil everything.
