Oak Tree, Ground View



It's pretty soggy around here right now with all the rain we've had, which does make a person pay attention to where they are stepping.  Lots of large oak trees on the back side of the campus, and I couldn't help but notice that the sidewalk reflects it.  This particular oak tree is much smaller than the others, and is still holding onto its leaves, like an oak from the Midwest.  Pin Oak?  The leaf tannins have made such a beautiful print on the sidewalk!  Glad for the opportunity to stare at my feet this week.

Melissa -- What a nice surprise for the walkers on campus. And for you a great photographic opportunity. Like the feeling of the shot! -- barbara

That's really beautiful, like a painting or autumnal print - which in a way I suppose it is.
