Late evening sunshine highlights giant Sycamore trees along the Little Miami River in southwest Ohio.
I took this photo last November, 11-21-09 at 5:59 p.m. Night was falling quickly and most of the forest was in shadow, but the sun's light sliced across the tops of the trees for a few minutes and washed everything in a warm glow. It was a spectacular sight...quiet and still...and fleeting.
I found this photo tonight while I was looking for birds to draw (Remember the 100 Bird Paintings in a Year challenge? Too bad I didn't. I've got a lot of catching up to do!).
