Fall, with its colors, is beautiful. The end of fall, with fewer leaves and less color, is subtly beautiful. I've tried to capture this beauty in photos. Here are two examples.
There are risks in exhibiting subtle pictures because less obvious beauty elicits less spontaneous oohs and aahs, less positive emotion. The photos shown here have been edited to enhance certain features. Not everyone will like them. Perhaps it's like appreciating some jokes: you had to have been there.
