Golden woods

Sunlight filters through the leaves onto those already fallen on the forest floor. This photo was taken at Starved Rock State Park near LaSalle, Illinois. I was taken by the golden canopy of the forest while walking one of the many trails found in the park.

Leaves that, while on the trees, manufactured food will continue to feed the roots throughout the winter as they decompose under a layer of snow. Until the warmth of spring causes budding leaves to form once again.

Life continues.

Update: The Elliptical Life ... offers some similar thoughts today. Check it out.

Randy Sutherland, my neighbour, has the perfect 'companion' shot to this one on his blog today. He's listed in my blog roll.
