Autumn Babble – North Carolina Stream

Purchase Image Download:

A small mountain creek winds its way through the peaceful Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina in autumn.

I titled this photograph “Autumn Babble” because this work makes me not only think and feel Autumn, but also hear it. Fall, to me, is the season with the best sounds. This North Carolina stream, for instance, had a gentle murmur. The autumn water flow waned due to less precipitation as well as less snow melt, resulting in a demur babble. But the forest itself had a quiet “babble” too, with the leaves softly falling, and all the creatures unable to prevent themselves from rustling the forest floor. When I look at this work, I hear all of these things. The photo was taken in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina, near Santeetlah Lake.
