It’s the first of October and we are finally moving into less hot weather! I went with the Roswell Photographic Society on our annual walk around Historic Roswell on Saturday. The walk started out from the Smith House Plantation which is where I got the image above.
If you don’t recognize this, it is the back side of a leaf from a cotton plant. Those are cotton bolls still on the stem behind it. In spite of the fact that summer has not quite let loose its hold on Atlanta yet, the cotton plants can tell that it is autumn and so, you get these interesting colors. Most of the leaves were still bright green but a few like this one were turning to display this green-on-red pattern that outlines all the veins and makes the detail stand out.
