Aspens Autumn Glow (JM-14821)
This stand of aspen bordering an old field in northern Wisconsin really caught my eye as we toured the woodlands of Bayfield County on a cloudy October day. The bright yellow leaves just seemed to glow, as if someone had turned on a large spotlight. This is the magic of overcast skies during the autumn season. However, it often lasts only a short time. The wind soon picked up and continued the next day, quickly making this bright forest edge rather dull.
