While Saturday's photo showed the beautiful Autumn colours, the more obvious aspect of Autumn is often ignored. Autumn marks the end of Summer, the end of warmth, the end of the green lifeforce that is nature, and while the season tries to hide this by luring us with beautiful oranges and yellows, if you look closely you will find the more morbid death of plants at the same time. I have been walking past this plant for a week and it's leaves are starting to look freakishly like clawing hands desperately trying to grab hold of the people passing them. It's a kind of freaky image, I know, but that's what I get from it, and so that is what today's photo is of.
