Umbrella - an abstract of a fallen leaf ©Daniel Sroka

This has been a very dry summer, with weeks of intense baking heat and no significant rainfall. Everything has a tinge of brown, and even the grass in my yard crunches slightly underfoot. Many of the trees are also losing leaves, bringing an early autumn in the middle of July. This is one of those leaves, still green but prematurely dried by the sun.
