#301 of 365 for Monday, October 28, 2013

Well this little bloom will probably be the last bloom from my garden until next spring.  The flowers have  drooped under the cold temps and most are gone, but this one was still hanging on so I just had to capture it. It proved to be a challenge though, as the wind was blowing like crazy,  and it is a tiny little bloom. I would try to focus and the wind would pick up and blow it completely out of my viewfinder.. so it took a few shots to get it... like about 15 :)

#291 of 365 for Friday October 18, 2013

Well today I set out determined to shoot something besides individual leaves.  I was thinking that my images on Tuesday and Wednesday were so similiar and might be boring to those who view my blog if I continued to shoot the same things.  So I head to the garden and get all focused on shooting a pretty little zinnia, still blooming there, as if it didn't know our temps were getting down in the low 40s and soon to be 30s.  I quickly decided I needed a lower view and looked at the ground to find a spot to drop down onto without crushing a flower.... but look what was directly below me!
It was all covered with dew drops and gently kissed by the early morning sunbeams.... just begging to be shot!  So eventhough I had the best of intentions as far as not boring all of you with leaf shots I did it again.  I just couldn't help myself :)  Oh but I did eventually manage to go on and shoot the flower
I was struck by the paleness of it's colors.... this really looks like a spring shot instead of a fall shot.

I love this big beautiful tree.  It stands in the edge of my yard and carpets the ground with golden yellow leaves.  I am convinced my yard hosts the prettiest tree on the block :)

If I step outside my door I am greeted by these little swirling, twirling, blowing pieces of art!  Each one is different.... different shapes, colors, patterns, textures...  I just couldn't resist shooting a leaf again this morning.... and that is fine..... soon they will fall to the ground, and their vibrant colors will give way to brown.... but for now they are gorgeous and I am enjoying them.
