The late afternoon sun shines on the turning leaves at the pond at the head of a creek oof of the Severn River. I didn't think much of this when I shot it, it was fun to get and pretty but it didn't mean much to me. I forgot it as soon as it ran, but a few weeks later a reporter asked me for a copy of it. She wanted a good copy of it to give to this couple. She said she had been in the house of an elderly couple for some story or other, and in their kitchen they had this picture taped to the wall. Nothing else, just this picture, and they would sit at the kitchen table and look at it. That's the best compliment I think I've ever had.
