This is the perfect ending to Halloween week on Wednesdays in Marblehead.  I was biking around town in search of foliage when I spotted this maple outside the cemetery on the corner of Elm and Creesy Streets.  I couldn’t find the right angle to shoot it from outside the cemetery so I ventured inside.  Once there, I found a few gravestones that would make for a nice foreground but the light wasn’t quite right.  Then the clouds shifted and the light illuminated the singular word ‘Mother’ on the one gravestone standing apart from the rest.  I dropped to the ground and angled the camera up a bit to capture the perfect light on the gravestone and maple lying beyond the cemetery walls.

Happy Halloween everyone!
