30 Words: Fall

Looming clouds part momentarily,
Leaving a patch of blue
Green, yellow, rust, crimson.
Leaves shimmer and shake
Temporarily illuminated by flashing beams
Cool breeze wafts by,
colorful detritus spiraling
This week's 30 Word Thursday pic was taken at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on Tuesday of this week.  I stopped by on my way back from Minneapolis and wandered the grounds with my camera.  It was amazing to me how drastically the place has changed.  Two weeks ago I was snapping shots of flowers, bees, and butterflies.  Now fading leaves littered the paths and flowers were mostly a thing of the past.  Photos were tough since the thick clouds would cover the sun periodically.  Check out the other 30 Word Thursday challenge entries at the Treasures Found Blog!

A gorgeous photo! I love the Autumn leaves against the beautiful blue sky.
Autumn is my favorite season too.
