On the way home

Last weekend my wife and I took a drive up to Hawk Mountain. I figured it would be a great opportunity for some fall foliage pictures. Fifteen minutes before we arrived at the visitors center the rain started and the blue skys receded into gray clouds. I took plenty of pictures from the summits and saw some beautiful views, but I have to admit I was a bit disappointed. On the way home, out of the corner of my eye, this scene caught my attention. I like the way the red in the trees looks like its sneaking up on the remaining green leaves, preparing to ambush the final flourish of summer.
