One Happy Camper

Yellow-Curtain

Yellow Curtain

Yet another leaf-y post, you'd say! But fall colors are such a rarity in these parts that when I got a chance to click these happy-hued leaves on our jaunt to Washington, I almost went berserk with delight. They were the most colorful locals I came across on grey, moody days we spent there. I would love to see sunlight filtering through them some day but for now I am happy with just these......happiness in small measures!!!! :)

how lovely would it be to have such a naturally gorgeous curtain on our drab windows of steel and glass! i'm imagining it and it looks lovely!

i love most of your photos and am especially attracted to some.. visiting ur blogs and looking at these photos, makes me really want to go out and buy myself a camera and start clicking! :)

Suggestive, fascinating, romantic... It would need to invent words new of it for your jobs.

That first photo is unusual, because the light shining through the leaves belies the foggy mist behind them. Love it!

The second is so nice too. The beautiful leaf shapes never cease to draw me in. So nice on these pavers. I'm glad you'll be able to enjoy scenes like this more soon.

The first shot is very pretty with the yellow leaves and misty background.... but my favorite is the 2nd shot... love the angle and the leaves on the stone...just beautiful!

gaz said...

gaz said...

What wonderful yellow leaves. I really like the blured warm colors in the background in the first shot. Love the composition of the scattered leaves in the second one too.

You always get such beautiful pictures out of everyday life. have seen so much fall color but never got one as beautiful as these

Me said...

Moi, the first photo reminds me of sunshine captured in the bright yellow leaves. Very nice. I like them on the tree, better than on the ground. I bet you were awestruck by the colorful display of the autum leaves. Some look, and just see trees - while others look and marvel at the colors in Mother Nature's tapestry. I marvel each fall as he leaves progress through fall colors.

Hi Moi,
Going beserk with delight must be verging on an arrestable offence in Washington....
Most of the Autumn colour gone by now,but you are so right, it does chher you up this time of year even if it is for a little bit.

Cheers Mark

Lovely fall color pictures, Moi..!!

Now ur post is encouraging me to upload mine photos on the blog...long time due..:(
(Apart, fall foliage photos come out gorgeous in grey, misty weather rather than on bright sunshine day)

Your first photo is a stunner. I was trying to accomplish something similar with a yellow maple tree last weekend, and could not get a shot in my camera that could compete with what I saw in my mind. This is it!

Mike said...

I love the scattered ones on the path.

joy said...

Love the colours, the angle and the subject.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo. May I invite you to visit my other blogs Your Love Coach and The Goddess In You? Please share your thoughts about these two.

Have a great day!

Amazing shot. Love the leaves on the floor

Still said...

The first one is really enjoying, but i think that i prefer the game on the lines of your second image.

Dee Bee said...

Love it! You do take amazing photos!

laurel said...

I felt the same way when I went up to Ohio. I took a billion leaf shots! These are beautiful I love the fog behind the yellow tree.

JAM said...

Beautiful. I hoped to get up somewhere north enough to see color this fall but the opportunity never materialized.

Kerri said...

Simple pleasures. Beautiful!

Neers said...
