That camera (and my limited skills) probably wouldn't have been up to capturing it, anyway. But the exposed branches of the oaks decorated by a remaining handful of reddish-brown leaves made redder by the low rays of the declining sun, and the green and reddish-gold of the autumn pines, all seen against that mass of burnished gray sky would have made a splendid picture. I am going to go back out now to enjoy the remainder of the daylight and the crisp air. Maybe there will be a sunset worth remembering.
