River, stump and leaf

When I came across this tree stump and autumn leaves along the Fox River, not far from my home in Elgin, IL, I didn’t consider any deep meaning in the subject matter, I just saw an interesting composition with the roots of the dead tree on the riverbank and the position of the fallen leaf.

As I considered my photo post for today, I saw the vitality that once was but now is no more. I see the passage of time. Maybe I see some hope.

What do you see?

I see great composition--well the contrast between the leaf and the tree is light vs. dark, last light fading, winter darkness coming!
