red leaves in my backyard

Is anyone getting tired of all the autumn leaves being shared on the blogs? I'm not. And I have a few more to share. Currently, there are slim pickings around me in the autumn leaf department, but these little red ones have been under my nose and I hadn't been paying them any attention until yesterday. These are some of the handful of leaves on my crepe myrtle that decided to turn red. Most of them are still green, but the ones that have changed to red are quite lovely...






*On all three images I used one layer of Kim Klassen's whitewash texture with the blending mode set to soft light.

  3. Oh, I am soooo envious of all the bright red maples I am seeing around here....alas NONE in MY yard :( Nope, I don't think I will EVER get tired of seeing crimson leaves. I particularly like your last shot...the angle and dof. And I do like that whitewash texture you used...lovely.

  28. These are wonderful, Deb! I am especially drawn to the range of colors in the first image - you have yellows all the way into purples. The veining is so interesting, too. We are just getting into prime leaf season around here, so you are inspiring me to get out...

  35. Never tire of seeing the fall leaves ...

    ReplyDelete
  36. No not yet! Especially since there really aren't many around here - us gulf coasters have to live fall through everyone else!

    These are faBulOUs!! Love the first and last ones!

    ReplyDelete
  37. MUST get out and take photos of the leaves before they are all on the ground!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Me, either! And, I love these, especially of that variation in the 1st one. God is quite the artist, huh!?

    ReplyDelete

  45. The leaves on your crepe myrtle are gorgeous! I fell in love with crepe myrtles on our first trip to the NC beaches. I found a variety that is hearty enough to survive our PA winters. I had one for two years and went out and bought another this summer. They are so beautiful! Lovely, lovely photos. I always enjoy your perspective in your photos.

  46. These are simply gorgeous! (I, for one, will never tire of fall leaves, especially as they are few and far between in west Texas!)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I glad you knew you knew the name of the orange butterfly. I searched and searched for its name and couldn't identify it. I will have to show my photos of them soon, but yours are gorgeous! You captured these beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Just beautiful. Especially the one you captured in flight. :)

  49. These are excellent! I too am searching for some magnificent colors and I'm coming up empty handed. Due to our crazy weather, I suspect we will be seeing a lot of yellow and brown here in central Jersey and not too much orange and red. Even so, I'm not giving up until the first snowfall - LOL!
