The End of Autumn II

Here is another photo from the Patuxent taken at sunrise about a week ago.  If you saw this same "layered" look in a painting, you might think it was not based on reality, but look how orderly the zones progress into the background.  First are the marsh grasses, then a line of smaller trees tolerant to a wetter environment, followed by a line of evergreens.  Behind those is a line of tall trees with a good deal of foliage still present giving way to a hillside of trees that have lost their leaves.  And, again, a sycamore adds a point of interest with it's white branches and trunks while the reds and greens compliment each other so nicely.  It doesn't get much better than this.
