The leaves have all fallen and winter is around the corner. There's not much to photograph at the Garden and outdoors right now, at least until the snow falls. Do I dare say that I'm excited for snow to arrive? I do love the change of seasons that we experience in the Midwest, even if winter does get a bit tiresome come February. For now, it's nice to have some extra time to work on images, reorganize files, install a new external hard drive and reflect on all I've learned and done with photography this year.
A few more Fall images I've been working on...
This one was taken on a rainy, cloudy day. The sun came out briefly before sunset, illuminating the foliage and turning the cloudy sky a beautiful shade of blue.
Notice the blue heron watching for fish on the shoreline?
More views in the Japanese Garden.
The crabapples are as beautiful in Fall as they are in blossom in the Spring.
