Fall has finally arrived here in south Louisiana, such as it is. We’ve had absolutely beautiful weather: little rain, some cool temperatures and much lower humidity. This is as good as it gets and usually only shows up in October and April, so this nice stuff on into November is a wonderful gift.

Yesterday morning I was rushing out the door to an early-morning appointment when a scattering of sweetgum leaves on my car stopped me in my tracks. They were on the trunk, the roof and the hood of my little silver car and the soft early morning light created some beautiful still lifes. Here’s one of those images. Like I find so often, Life really does bring photographs to you, if you slow down and look a bit.

  1. Today, I went out in 23-degree weather to photograph frost on foliage. It was the first time I’ve deliberately done that, and I’m happy I did. I started with my Pentax DSLR and switched to my Fuji Finepix ultra-zoom because of its super-macro.

  2. It will be January before we get a day that cold! Nice photos, Evelyn!
