Gold — The Color of Fall

In fall we are all rich,as we are surrounded by gold.
I hope you have already taken the time to enjoy this beauty,but just in case you have not,or the gold has not shown up in your parts,allow me to share some of mine with you.


This first picture is one that is so simple,I almost overlooked it.Here is one leaf floating on a bird bath which is sitting on my deck.The gold in the background makes this picture amazing,in my eyes.


At the other end of the deck is this pot of Mums and again,one lone leaf was caught in the flowers.
No,I did not place these leaves,the wind from a previous day had done that for me.


Not all foliage turns gold.I spotted this lone red maple leaf lying on the ground,joined by various others.
The red really caught me attention,in a sea of brown.


One more look at gold,with some orange added.
The Mountain Ash leaves turn into varying shades of yellow to orange,in fall.


I am not really good at getting moon shots,but I did like this slightly out of focus image with a cloud over the face of the moon.


Thought for today:
We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts.

What an eye you have for what makes a pleasing photo. Every one of these is just so simply lovely. I think I would alter Mr. Hazlitt's quotation slightly, to read: "We do not see nature with our eyes alone, but also with our understandings and our hearts and our camera lens."

Hi Ruth, You have a good eye for the beauty around you Ruth. You captured the vivid colors of the Season, and so nicely composed. I especially like the bird bath photo.
I haven't really been out to capture the Fall colors of yet, as either I am working, or it has been raining, among other things. I have a client that lives down by the Bay, so I have taken my camera and been fortunate enough to capture my swans learning to fly a couple of times, after work. I guess those may be my Autumn pictures this year. We will see!
Do have a great week and I have enjoyed viewing your lovely pictures of the Autumn Season.
Hugs, Dianne :)

Those are neat pictures. What aperture and shutter speed is that moon shot? Doesn't seem like I ever have any luck taking moon shots.
