  1. Wow, that’s a beauty! So many shades captured. Wonderful.

      Thank you :-)

      I had to be very patient to get this photo. Mr C strode out in front of me and stood under the red tree for many minutes taking photographs!! Totally oblivious to the fact that he had walked in front of my photo, until he turned round after he had finished his lengthy photo-shoot and said.

      ‘Oh!! Sorry I didn’t realise you were trying to take a photo’

      Me: I doesn’t matter, but I hope I didn’t miss the perfect light that I saw.

      The irony of that is I didn’t miss my perfect light and the photo I went on take under the leaves of the tree later was apparently what he saw in his minds eye, but didn’t manage to capture in his photos.

      I don’t particularly like leaf photo I took and think that his photos of that were much better than mine ;-)

  2. Oh, how lovely, Cherie.

    The last of the colour, Cherie? Here there is virtually none left

    Phew! Did you take this photo today, CherryPie?
    A beautiful image, anyway.

    I love how the color has seemed to linger on and on this year…for you, too, I see. YAY. And I love your story about your husband, as told to Don. :)

    Colourful enchantment…

    Cherie, Your fall colors are lovely. I’m always sorry to see the leaves fall and the trees to become bare.

      Thank you :-)

      I always love the time when some leaves are on the trees and some are on the floor beneath. I love to walk through those leaves and feel them whisp about as I walk through them :-)
