Honoring Autumn Leaves


leading with one of my older photos
and a favorite of mine
a rare find when raindrops are colored


ancient rugged beauty


leaves reflected as golden light
dancing on the river


forest lace
in the depth of a dark forest


a crown of ice crystals
 

through the leafy veil
 

together they begin winter
 

gems of rain
 

lay me down to sleep till spring


this last one is one i have always loved

more rugged handsome

leaves as treasures

  1. Such beauty in all your images and the golden reflections on the river is gorgeous. The transparency of the leaf showing up the blades of grass is so delicate. Each image is a joy to behold!

  4. That part of Montana has to be beautiful at this time, I have been in Whitefish
    but in the summer (2012). Of course you make it even more beautiful.
    Have a good one, Tammie.

  14. Such marvellous autumn finds. nature gives us the best gems and not necessarily diamonds. Those ephemeral mulri-coloured drops on a leaf are beyond beautiful, as is the frozen lace edge. Your photos overwhelm me with their beauty.

  15. Dear Tammie - The eyes to spot out gems lying quietly in nature and to capture them in their natural but the most beautiful image seem to be innate quality of you. I’m touched by each and every image and your words. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Your leaves, whether bejeweled or crinkly are works of art. I love the image of the grass silhouetted behind the leaf and the crown of frost. Snow due here tomorrow.

    1. hi Barb,
      Thank you.
      it rained all day, poured really. Then tonight it turned to snow. It is a winter's realm for sure. Amazing how a season can change! wishing you snow that feels good to you.
