Shades of Autumn: White.

white.   i love white. 
white can take on many forms....

it can be mysterious as was the fog that lingered one recent morning.

white can be the frosty coating on the plants on a crisp, fall day. 

white can even elicit a feeling of whimsy.

i fell in love with the beauty of these milkweed pods
 and their white silky fibers.

i found an abundant number of synonyms for white. 
achromatic. frosted. milky. pearly. neutral. unspotted. fresh. new. 
unmarked. bright. elegant. snowy.

white can be described in an endless number of ways and take on
many forms. this week, i found that white IS truly a shade of autumn. 
just take a minute to observe a bit more closely, you might encounter
some beautiful fall whites that you might ordinarily have overlooked.
