With all the recent rain and wind, I had just about given up on capturing any images of foliage in Marblehead. On Sunday morning, I headed out with my wife to walk the dog and our patch took us along Humphrey Street. As we crossed the street at Rose Avenue, I turned my head and spotted this view of Ware Lane with rainwater having formed a small reflecting pool that had turned into liquid gold with the morning sun backlighting the yellow leaves.

We finished the walk and I returned with my camera to capture the serene view of fall’s brilliant colors. I chose a large aperture to focus on the tree and reflection while pushing the leaves in the distance into a softer palette of color.
