My leaves .. :) (pic heavy)

I went crazy today taking pictures of lots of stuff! It rained a lot last night so I went out early this morning, after dropping off my kids at daycare, to see if there were some droplets left. It was a nice day and I was anxious to use my close up filters (love them!) Smile Here's what I got today. Colorful eh? I tried to get different colors. I just love fall! So yeah umm.... I think I'm going to have a hard time picking one for the Leaves challenge Lol Sorry so many! Just had to share!

thanks! Biggrin I don't have a macro lens. I used some filters that attach to my 50mm 1.8 lens. Pretty cool huh?

These are wonderful. You sure have lots of fall color already! Here... it is still very much green. It's great that you are able to take macro shot with your filter. That thing is awesome!

Thanks gals! It's really beautiful here right now! When I am driving or walking somewhere I just soak in all the beauty. Smile Fall is my favorite time of year! I just wish it was a sunny season. It doesn't last long though. One month tops and it rains a lot so there's no piling up the leaves and jumping in them here or you'll get wet Smile Come November everything will be dead and it will be freezing cold. Yesterday was a beautiful and warm day. Today it's gloomy and cold. But I'm hoping we can go on a nature walk this weekend, if its nice out, so I can take more pics. Smile I'm now seeing why Amy takes lots of macro shots. They are addicting! I'm anxious to find more to photograph. Hmm...might have to find stuff around the house lol

Beautiful stuff! I love love love the clover #3 even though it's not leaves but you can see the leaves behind the flower and they look SO cool, I love their shapes and how you can see the pattern on them.

My other fave is #5--that color is to die for. #13 is so pretty too.

It was hard to pick, but for me, #1 is the winner! I love the contrast in the color of the leaf to the background. just beautiful and the water droplets sparkle like diamonds on that rough old leaf. I guess I just like all of the contrasting elements.

TFS!

I'm going to pick and chose a few to reply to. Wink

3. I really love the lighting on this, very neat!!! I'd print this big and hang it in the house.

6. Cool!! Love the red in the middle, just a neat contrast to all of that green.

7. Nice burst! I wanna see the blue heart though.
