There was finally a major storm in our area Thursday night – thunder and lightening and intense rain showers. Showers yesterday but there was still rain this morning – what a treat.  With the color season beginning in a few days I thought that maybe the rain would brighten up the colors in the fallen leaves and help to usher in the season. Spent some time at a local park just wandering among the fallen leaves looking for a composition that said autumn color.  Hopefully many more images to come when I focus my camera on Steens Mountain in a week or so although those may be more of the grand landscape than the intimate version below.
