Take Hwy. 89A from Sedona north. West Fork is about ten miles up Oak Creek Canyon.
This tree reminds me that nature goes through a metamorphosis every season. You can see the changes in the leaves from green to yellow, and then orange with brown decaying spots, and know they will not last much longer. The softness of the out-of-focus leaves in the foreground give me a swirling feeling of life in motion as I look at this photograph.
