This is a curious log. It looks sawed, but the inside doesn't. Two of the others look like something has started to hollow out them. Perhaps the older growth decayed out while the tree was still living.

The frost and the colors capture the mood and the cool, still air of an autumn morning, the beginning of a delightful Indian Summer day.

Insegredious, The tree must have been rotting from the center out. A few of the logs were higher up the tree and the rot did not get to them at the time the tree hit the ground. This log pile has been around a while and is located at one of my favorite places to be in the warmer months of summer. When I made a late season trip to this out of the way place I was delighted to find the frost on the logs and other places I donít usually see frost. It is one of the first 100 or so shots I had taken with my e-500.

Thank you for your comments.
