I love the glimmers of sunlight in the forest. No flashlight, no extra processing to get the light just right. Sometimes the sun sends down interesting rays of sunshine that capture those dark corners of the forest and highlight something just slightly magical. Capturing that special light can be quite the challenge.
I often expect a fairy to peek over the side of one of these mushrooms. The most I can get are butterflies in spring and summertime. But not in the fall and winter when mushrooms are at their grandest. But at least the winter sun offer some lovely illumination at this time of year.
On the beach in Florida, lots of terns hunting along the waves, along with gulls.
Florida sunrises can be spectacular. I’m fond of rising early because the sky can be magnificant, especially in the fall, double especially after a storm. I took this one as I walking to to the beach a couple of years ago. The fence, the building silhouettes, the rippling clouds, and the orange sky.
A bit of Halloween aftermath. And if you look close you can see the red-tailed hawk flying by. This was one of those drive-by squeal to a halt – not really the squeal, but you get my drift. It’s the find a place to pull over, I need to take a picture moment.
Orange-yellow and sunlight bringing spingtime color to life with a special nature’s vibrancy all its own. Tulips for an iconic spring look; fall leaves in similar shades provide iconic autumn.
This is the color and image I envision when I think of autumn. Golds, oranges, maybe some hints of red. Early morning dew, maybe a light rain.
Was walking toward the edge of a pond to take some photos before stopping for lunch when I saw this orange cat. Someone had provided shelter and food for it. He kept his distance, watching warily making sure I didn’t come too close.
