Autumn Leaves

In response to Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: Autumn – Metal. You may remember the fall photos I shared last February of my grandma’s lake – but that same day, I took a bunch of close-ups of leaves as well that I haven’t shared before.

This one is probably my favorite of these. I like how the fall colors pop against the reflection of the sky on the lake:

These scarlet leaves were so glossy that glare ruined many of my shots, but this one turned out:

I believe these are oak leaves:

And I think these are maple. I like how half is changing and the other half is green, like it couldn’t decide if it was ready to embrace autumn:

If you want to see more fall photos (and a poem), I posted this last November: Fall Magic

  1. Wow, Grace…what beautiful pictures! Fall is my favorite time of year…maybe it has something to do with the holidays coming, but I just think it that weather. And of course, leaves turning color like these. Beautiful post!!!!!!!!!

    • Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ โ™ฅ

      I love that about fall too! It may be my favorite season as well. (And also the fact that my birthday is in October. I’m not biased at all, noooo. ๐Ÿ˜‚) But seriously, harvesting veggies, hot chocolate, and like you said, the holidays approaching, weather getting cooler (which means hot chocolate!), leaves changing… it is nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Cool shots! Yep, I would definitely say those are oak leaves (look like white oak specifically), and the others look like maple (I have no idea which type ๐Ÿ˜) I love those glossy red ones, whatever they are!
