Capturing Autumn

Autumn in northern Indiana reminds me of life. The fleeting days. Inch by inch, the days grow shorter and the sun sinks into the sunset earlier. Sun's friend Moonlight follows and whispers in cool breezes throughout the night. Moonlight stays longer, as it has been her season since summer. Falling leaves, the colors of the leaves on the trees, and sky changes. Changes in life as well.
A friend inspired me to capture autumn yesterday because of the perfect landscaping and the ideal weather. Instead of waiting to venture outside to embrace the day, capture the perfect photograph, and soak up the last of the warm sunshine until the coolness of winter approaches, I seized the moment. Once the leaves fall to the ground and the sky turns to night, the day and the moment passes.
