Late autumn light

 I felt like I couldn't stay inside another moment.
I felt hemmed in by my four walls and the walls of suburbia.


I needed to get out to find someplace new, something new to look at.


So I drove out of my driveway,through miles of suburbia
passing the boxy strip malls and row after row of identical houses.


Houses gave way to barns 
and athletic fields to pastures.


I wove my way through back roads racing the light

and caught it just before it disappeared.

Beautiful! I love the sun picture and how the light hits the branches. You really should start printing these and make cards or wall art.
