This collection of images documents a day spent at Pilot Mountain, located in western North Carolina. These photos were captured during the height of autumn 2020 when the air was cool and the colors of the changing leaves were at their purest and most intense. This series evolved from a single day's recording into a tone poem, a kind of love letter to nature, light, and color.
