Summer has long past. Fall is finishing. Down by the river, these wild grasses are making their final stand. Soon biting winter winds will assault them and Wisconsin snow will smother them.
This photo was taken early Saturday morning about half a mile from my home. I posted a black and white photo from this same morning a couple of days ago, entitled: Highlights by the River.

This is an appropriate image to bid Autumn farewell. Even though this may have been the tiniest tree in the forest, it was determined to put on a striking display of fall color. I’m amazed this twig of a tree, with just two large leaves, even made it to fall.
This photo was taken a few years ago. Busy schedules and weather worked against my plans to grab some great fall images this year…and last year. I see the autumn colors and think, I’ll have to get out and take some photos – and then weather turns bad, strong winds come in, and the trees loose all that beauty. Well, maybe next year.
