While waiting for sunset at Cathedral Rock a couple of days ago, I spent a small amount of time looking for the first fallen leaves in Oak Creek. There were only a few as it is about 10 days early for fall color in Sedona and possibly longer in this location. I did find a few leaves and look forward to going back and using my macro lens. The shot below was taken with my 50 mm 1.8 lens which I also used for the photo in Slip Sliding In The Creek. The black on the right side of the image is soot from the Slide Fire that was several miles upstream this past May and gives an abstract feel. I have heard it will take 1 to 2 years for all of the toxic soot to clear from the creek depending on snowfall and rain.
