Oh Nameless Beauty

Posted in life, photography by amoslanka on October 30, 2008

She taunts me daily.

Its bad enough to have a row of beautiful red trees outside the windows at work, windows that are often blinded because of the glaring effect that sunlight has on computer monitors. This tree stands along the path I walk to and from work every day.

Its been far more than one occasion that I have stopped on my way by to just gaze. And to dream. And to remember. This kind of vibrance has all sorts of effects on a person if they allow it. I’m doing my best to give my heart fearlessly.

And here she is at night:

The Red Tree by Night

Love is red.

    just fantastic colors… nothing like that down here in the south, still leaves on the trees and the ones that have fallen are brown. :)

    @evan — better hurry if you do, i took all these photos (except the last one) last week and we’re quickly changing from autumn into winter already.

    Great fall photos! Bravo!

    Hasn’t it been a beautiful fall in the Gorge this year? I can’t remember a more gorgeous autumn…and I have lived here for a long time.

    “Love is red.” Nicely put.
