The Missed Autumn

Unfortunately, I have not had much in the way of opportunity to photograph autumn color this year.  However, while I was leaving Phipps Botanical Gardens after photographing with my friends, I saw this gorgeous red tree. This was despite the fact that there wasn't all that much fall color around at the time.  It seemed like fall was totally focused on this one tree, and the empty bench somehow added to the feel of the photo.  So how could I give up an opportunity like this?  I took the time to make this photograph just after leaving.  It might just be the only photo of fall color I get to make this year.
