Quaker Brook at Haviland Hollow

An October battleground between light and dark, the lowering angle of the sun displaying increasing weakness as cold and shadows begin to take over a little more each day. Despite brightly lit leaves passing from chartruese to yellow, it's almost impossible to feel anything but a pessimistic sense of loss this time of year. The myth of Persephone's abduction by Hades comes to mind.
