Homage to Eliot

Eliot Porter's photographs shine clear and true and never cease to fill me with wonder no matter how often I gaze into their depths of color. His powerful purity of purpose in pristine appreciation of natural beauty was nothing short of astonishing. Type his name into Google, there are sites that show some of his work. Better, track down his books, they are worth the investment.
Now I know I don't measure up to your little toe, Eliot, but wherever you may be resting now, please accept this humble homage from a devout admirer... I took this photo the other day thinking of you. Autumn is a beautiful time of year, bringing out warm rich colors from the sea of summer green; before it all fades to the cold heart of winter.
