Leverett, MA 
October, 1997

The setting: This image was taken at dawn on the morning of the first hard fall frost. The light was soft from high thin clouds. This frost remains until the sun hits it and it then vanishes in minutes. The leaves of ground foliage such as this generally remain green until roughly the time of the first frost and then turn brilliant red over the course of a few days.

Technical detail: TMax 100, 4x5, Zone VI Field Camera, Schneider 210 mm lens, f32.
