Macro shot of an autumn leaf. Beyond showcasing the autumn colors the photo further depicts the circle of life. The glorious farewell of a single leaf indicating the coming of winter, the end of a generation which will be followed by a new one when spring arrives. Ancient Hellenes beautifully represented the coming of fall and winter with the descent of beautiful Persephone (representing Life) to Hades!
