While photographing the fall color along the Tieton River on White Pass in Washingtons Cascade Mountains, I ran across this rock with just one red Maple leaf on it.

Amazing shot. Definitely a 10/10 and one for my favorites. This photo has great movement contrasted perfectly with the lone, still maple leaf on it. Great job.

Greg said it! It's that still leaf in the middle of the chaotic motion. Without it, it wouldn't give the impact.

Great shot, Michael. The motion of the water emphasizes the journey. A rest stop, perhaps?

100% perfect focus and clarity as are all of your pics, photoimagery. The image itself doesn't exactly strike my attention, but another wonderful pic nonetheless.

Reminds me of how I felt at Christmas time....everything rushing and swirling by...and I felt so zapped and just needed a place to stop and hold on to to catch my breath...
This is truly an enchanting capture.
