Fall foliage

The autumnal colors are trying their best to give us a show in spite of the drought we have been in.  A couple of days ago, I posted an image from this same dogwood tree where you could see the color creeping into the leaves with the veins showing different color from the leaf.  What a difference a day or two makes!  The leaves are now beautiful shades of yellow and red.  There are lots of spots and wilting along the edges but the color is still there.

Now, someone needs to tell Mother Nature that this is really supposed to be the Fall season.  Yesterday, I put on my jeans and pulled out a sweater and ended up wearing shorts all day because it was too hot.  Once again, we are in the Atlanta version of change of season.  The season changes every day and sometimes multiple times in the same day.  Oh well, enjoy it while you can.  I’m sure winter will appear all too soon and then I’ll be longing for summer to return.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
