Sapling in Fog
Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
Cool fog rolling over the Blue Ridge mountains envelops the highland forest, distinguishing this white oak sapling from its neighbors. Pink spring leaves sprout from its swaying branches. I love the first weeks of spring, when fresh young leaves seem to sprout in every vivid hue before converging on the verdant green of summer.
