    Mmmmm.. what a perfect way to introduce some fall flavors without getting heavy! And I agree with you–I think the horizontal boards with the vertical orientation works here. I LOVE how deep the shadows are, balanced by the bright, bright highlights on the boards. It reads of bright fall light–still early in the season–but a bit warmed up by the rich browns. You inspired me to go gather some leaves for a couple fall shoots I’m doing here soon!

      So happy to hear that I inspired you, that makes me smile! Glad you like the heavy shadows, I’ve always been a big fan of dark shadows and sometimes I have to be careful not to go overboard with them. :)
