Hint of Fall

Although I took this picture in August, already a leaf had turned red and fallen into a pond in Caledonia State Park. I liked the leaf in the water, a floating punch of color. But then my camera autofocused on the surface of the water instead of the leaf underneath, and a new picture formed, all by chance. The watercolor effect superimposed on the reflections of leaves still on the tree attracted me, and here is the end result:

The red leaf in the water looks so serene; the second picture reminds
me of when I was a child and would lay down on the grass looking up through the trees while
daydreaming!

Fall is my favorite season of the year!

I like the new format colors.

Just goes to show there are two sides to every story :)

A common scene looked at from a new perspective can be entirely different........Great shots!

Nice template too, gives you page a whole new look.
