behind the beauty

Fish Creek Provincial Park
Amidst the yellows and reds and oranges that can be found in an October wood, my eye always seems to be drawn toward those bare branches in the background. The eerie scene behind the beauty, a sign of what is to come. A reminder that soon, the leaves will be fallen and what is left may very well haunt your evening walks.

Halloween is not far... not far at all. And with each spooky reminder, my heart awakens. Come those barren branches, come the singing raven, come the breeze that chills me to the bone. The time is drawing near... can you feel it?

Yes... my favourite time of year.
