This row of ginkgos is a fantastic backdrop for a cloudy winter day. You'd hardly notice that it's grey and cold, with all that saturated golden amber. The fallen leaves are a bonus for instigating fun; I find that grownups also delight in fallen leaves.
Shortly after this shoot, I brought my own kid to this location in hopes of having some ginkgo photos for my own family photo collection, but most of the leaves had fallen by then. She would not be still, except when gathering leaves to throw at me - and in all those instances she strategically had her back turned. Thus, an action shot.
