Most shots of Autumn leaves show pristine reds, oranges, browns and muted greens. I on the other hand have been looking for some not quite so pristine images. Autumn is after all about regeneration, the preparation for Winter and the eventual re-birth of Spring but before that can happen, the old materials must rot, releasing their nutrients into the soil. The continuous cycle of nature is not always truly depicted by photographers. So spare a thought for the rotten!
