Intense Red

    We have a garden gate with an arch over it.  The arch is covered with a Boston Creeper plant whose leaves turn a brilliant red every autumn.  The other evening I was out pulling weeds in the garden and happened to glance over to the arch and was amazed at the intensity of the color of the leaves.

    The sun was low on the horizon and shining through the haze of forest fire smoke.  The haze gave the light an orangish hue that really intensified the reddish color of the leaves.  I had my iphone in my pocket so took this photo.  I haven’t manipulated the image at all, it is how it came out of the camera.
