We gathered a few hundred fallen aspen leaves last weekend during a 4 hour hike on a favorite running trail. As we started feeling rain drops on our heads, we decided we should make it back down the trail a little faster than the ascent- but that would require passing up all the beauties we missed on the way up. Each leaf seemed prettier and more unique than the previous leaf.Andy Goldsworthy. You can view some of his work here. We had a project in mind for the leaves, but first, as daylight was fading, I plopped down on my back patio and sorted the leaves into piles according to coloring.
I worked hastily as dusk was fast approaching.
Then, snapped a few photos and gathered the leaves to start the intended project inside.
I didn't know how much I would fall in love with the images until I saw them on my computer screen.
Thank you, Mr. Goldsworthy, for the inspiration.
