Soft, Late Autumn Wood with Maple Sapling Understory

When New England Autumns are just past peak, the woods are still graced with an understory of saplings holding on to their leaves longer than their older "relatives." I chanced on this "quiet" scene while walking on Talcott Mountain, figured I could draw the eye in with a wide shot, putting a young maple in the foreground, and bringing out the structure of the bark in the trees as the eye moves back from there, until we find more young maples far in the background; echoing the foreground.
