Fall Colors

I’ve always loved the change of seasons. Especially fall. The bright greens of the grass and leaves give way to the browns, yellows, and reds of fall. The leaves drop to the ground creating a colorful patchwork carpet just begging to be walked on and scattered with your feet.

When the rain wets the grass, the fall colors really pop. I’m always kneeling on the ground taking photos of the leaves as people walk past me wondering what’s so exciting. They just don’t see what I see I guess. Their loss.

I see this view so often from my office window in the fall. I must have 20 or 30 of this scene on my hard drive. But, this day really struck me as special. The sun was just below the horizon. The sky was clear for the moment. 15 minutes after I took this photo, the clouds moved in and blocked all that color. I’m glad I got it when I did.

Back to photographing and blogging

I’ve been away from this blog and honestly all my hobbies for so long now. My life, much like the leaves in the photos has been falling apart and starting to decay. Not that I’m trying to bring you down or anything. Just making excuses to myself as to why I’ve let my hobbies fall away.

I’ve found my way back to my camera and my blog. Photography has been my one steady companion for so long and I’ve been ignoring it. I’m sorry photography. 🙂 I promise to keep my eye open for photo ops from now on and to blog my heart out. Even if no one ever reads this post or any of my posts. I just need to get the creative juices flowing again.

A Back Lit Weed – Dandelion

I went for a walk with my son after dinner. We have 3 drainage ponds here in our area so we hit them all looking for some good photo ops. We found many and took lots of photos.

Of all the photos I took, this is the one I like best.

Dandylion - Backlit

 

A back lit dandelion. A weed of all things. I guess it’s the way the light is passing through the fluff on the top. I really like back lit plants. Especially when the leave or petals are a bit translucent.
