Thanks to life and all the madness it’s tossed my way, I’ve been needing quite a bit of tree therapy lately. Thanks to all the amazing tree photographs shared on Flickr and Google+, my sanity is no longer threatened.
That reminds me…About a month ago, in a Monte Sano blog post, I promised a follow-up post that focused on the autumn leaves of Monte Sano. As I was looking through my photos I discovered a lot of other beautiful leaves that I captured over the last several weeks, and what better way to say “Happy Winter” than to take a look back at autumn. (No shame here. I am partial to autumn).
This beauty greeted a whole congregation of church folk as we exited service one November afternoon.
I wasn’t the only one struck by this magnificence. Many paused to capture photos of the two trees. Take a closer look:
This one (above) was shot while looking up and standing between the two trees. Just take a deep breath and enjoy those brilliant colors mingling.
Here’s an even closer look at the leaves of the tree on the left:
I want to live in those leaves!
Here are some tree/leaf shots taken while sitting on a “float” with my son’s saddle club while riding through a Veteran’s Day parade. I’m loving the lens flare on the first image. [Click an image for a closer look].
Shades of Fall Green
Shades of Fall Yellow-Green
Shades of Fall-Golden
Shades of Fall-Deep Golden
Leaf and Sky
And here are the leaves of Monte Sano–still green, yellowing, golden, bright orange, deep red, and bronze…
May the gorgeous colors of autumn carry you through the browns, grays, and snowy whites of winter!
