this or that thursday: leaves

Most of our leaves are still green...



But if you look closely, you can find some colorful ones too.


Every now and then I hear someone new to photography ask how to find the good light. In my opinion, the best place to see it is on the leaves. See how they are glowing? That's how you know it's the good light.



It's time to link up again, but there are just a few rules to go over first.
  • submit the url of your blog post, not your home page
  • link up a photo that was taken by you
  • include a link back to my blog in your post (you can use the button or a text link if you prefer)
  • visit a few other blogs and leave some comment love 
Okay, now let's see what you've been shooting!

  7. Great tip about the light. I love this time of year - the angle of the light is perfect for capturing those leaves, especially when they turn color. Wonderful photos!
