Golden Leaf – Golden Leaf on a deck in Maryland. In 2010 I trained for and ran the Marine Corps Marathon. Don’t ask a lot of questions. We spent my last month of training at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. It was a great place to train because a lap around the airfield was ten miles. One day each week, I took two laps. That is another story, though. Several days before the marathon, as I was resting following my run, I noticed that many of the leaves in the base RV park had begun falling. I spent my cool-down time walking around the park with my camera. For some reason, I really liked this image.
