When life hands you lemons, you'd better have your camera ready

A cloudy day suddenly turned into a sunny one and the bright yellow of the ginkgo in the backyard called to me.  I love how all of its leaves turn to lemon in one day, sit for awhile looking pretty, then drop all at once into a yellow carpet on the grass.  Fleeting beauty in a season that celebrates change.

Those are the best days, the ones you expect to be grim and grey but which turn out to be lovely and bright.
