Out and About
A Slice of Red
Blue Ridge Mountains Virginia Landscape.
Oak Leaves Plus One
These oak leaves are a perfect sign of the season and soon will fall to the ground as colder weather arrives.
When I saw this lone tree stump in a grassy field I wondered when it was cut down, and why. Whatever, it made a nice photo subject.
A Favorite View
I’ve made lots of landscape photos in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. A favorite location is Philpott Lake, with over 100 miles of winding shoreline and beautiful trees. I especially enjoy making photos there in late Fall and Winter.
Which Photo Fits the Season?
This photo of lingering leaves on a Maple tree in our back yard fits the season.
However, this photo made minutes after the one above, showing one of our Camellia Bushes in the front yard, might make one think it’s Summertime. Mother Nature always presents us with interesting sights.
Frost on the Grass
Artistic and Creative
There was a layer of frost on the grass when I got out of bed this morning. Perfect time to make a photo or two.
The morning sun not only began to melt the slim layer of ice, it also provided a nice back-lit photo of a lone leaf.
A bit of symmetry.
Rain highlights Autumn colors.
Finally … some orange colors. Thank you Pear trees.
Beautiful End of the Road
Sometimes it’s a good idea to go to the end of a road. You never know what you might find. In this case I found a beautiful scene.
Tree at Peak Color
I’m glad I saw this image at just the right time. Perfect yellows.
Vines on Trees
Fall colors make climbing vines stand out as they grow upward.
Making a “back-lit” composition enhances colors.
