Autumn by bobfoto

Autumn

living in the Tropics, we don't do the whole 4 seasons thing. It either rains or it doesn't. So when the Ice Cream Machine is in cooler climes, I appreciate the odd fallen leaf.
I like it, very simple, but striking. Looks like there are little water drops on it to!

Nice, simple shot JD. Hope you're having fun the nations capital. It's been bloody cold here so it must be freezing there!

@dcr - it was cold...
May 11th, 2011

Lovely. Minimalist.

Great contrasts here. Bring that van further south and I will fill it with leaves for you.
May 11th, 2011  
simple and pretty. great composition. fall is my second fav season :D
May 11th, 2011  
Living without a season or two can lend itself to a bit of nostalgia for a fallen leaf, and I definitely see the beauty in that.

NICE - Jason

Plain and simple, great shot. Love the contrast the most.

great texture and contrast!
May 12th, 2011  
Did you get any shots of crispy, frosty grass? This morning was a good one for that...... brrr....
May 12th, 2011  
I can relate.. I'm glad you're enjoying your cooler weather :)
May 12th, 2011  
Love the simplicity!
May 12th, 2011  
I like your leaf! These leaves are possibly my favourite thing about Autumn, they make things so darn pretty!
May 13th, 2011  
We do miss out when it comes to autumn colours! I think I can cope with that though ;-) Pretty leaf.

@nattybabe @jannaellen @netkonnexion - Thank you Nat, Janna and Net.

@murnane - no thanks Marg, I know how many leaves that is.

@kdimagery - and first is?

@aj1268 - I know what you are saying, but give me the warmth!!!

@difeeney @mhensley @dianezelia - Thank you Diana, Michael and Diane.

@lmasinton @kasumie13 - Cheers Lael and Ms Ables...

@canberrabec - nope. While is was chilly I saw no frozen foliage.

@buggus - I'm lucky the Ice Cream Van was all gassed up because I have high-tailed it back to the warmth!

@callalilla @amz87 @bella_ss - Thank you Kimberly, Ms Moon and Sheralee. #:0)

This is like a negative version of yesterday's photo of the bird, in colour and the same simple composition. They look cool together in the thumbnails on your page.
May 13th, 2011  
@mimma_blue - well spotted. I like that Ms Blue, thank you. #:0)
May 13th, 2011  
I love the texture of this shot... the roughness of the ground and the smoothness of the leaf... nice
May 13th, 2011  
Great texture!

@bobfoto
why SUMMER of course :):):)!!!
i am a summer baby :) and i looooooooove SO MUCH about the season! mostly, i can BE OUTSIDE and do so much more. I AM REALLY into camping! so in the summer i go almost every weekend...or at least try to. i love biking, and quading, and fishing, and bbq's with ice cold beer :D haha. SO MUCH I LOVE about summer :)
May 13th, 2011  
@frameit - thank you Tracy, I daresay there are some pretty falling leafs down your way too?

@snipsnap - Thank you Ramona.

@kdimagery - sounds wonderful Ms Wallis. Where I live, we all hang out for winter (the Dry) because we get 6 months without clouds, its cooler so we can run around without sweating, and the ground dries out. Summer (which is my favourite time of year) is hot and humid.
May 13th, 2011  
Plenty of leaves and changing colours happening around here... hopefully I will have some time to get out in the parklands next week before I hop on a plane and head North
May 14th, 2011  
@bobfoto
i think i would like winter alot more if it were like your winters. Winters here, -35 to -40 degrees celsius is normal :( And that is just TOO cold if u ask me.....we really are troopers around here! haha.
May 14th, 2011  
@frameit - heading for warmer climes eh? You don't own a caravan do you?

@kdimagery - No way! Where do you live? Winnipeg?
May 14th, 2011  
No I am hopping on a plane and heading to Brisvegas for a few nights...
May 14th, 2011  
@frameit - Ahhh Brisneyland! Nice.
May 14th, 2011  
@bobfoto
YES WAY!!! haha. winter here is harsh! I live in the province of Alberta. NORTHERN ALBERTA. In a smaller town about 5 hours north of Edmonton.....i have no idea if u know where that is or not. haha. But ya!! winter here is VERY COLD...with tons of snow. lol.
May 14th, 2011  
@kdimagery - tomorrow I will get my Atlas out and look. I know Winnipeg is in the centre of Canada up on the flat plains... I'll check out Northern Alberta tomorrow.
May 14th, 2011  
@bobfoto
:) sounds good :) that is where i am :D
May 14th, 2011  
@kdimagery - wow, if you are further north then Edmonton, then Brrrrrr!!!! That is too cold!
May 15th, 2011  
@bobfoto
HAHAHAHA! i am such a trooper tho :) !! And yah, like i said, i live 5 hours north of Edmonton yet. It does get VERY cold in the winter. People who travel here in the winter from australia and such think we are all krazy...and you would be surprised at how many ppl ACTUALLY think we live in igloos and have pet polar bears!!! hahaha, it is always quite amusing :D
May 15th, 2011  
@kdimagery - yeah people think we Aussies have Kangaroos hoppin' down the street, Possums by the back door and Frogs in the toilets.... oh wait. I do.
May 16th, 2011  
@bobfoto
HAHA, that is funny!
May 16th, 2011  
@kdimagery - A pet Polar bear would be cool.
May 16th, 2011  
@bobfoto
haha! it would be! i have said that before actually. hahaha. like it would ever happen. Altho there are ppl with pet grizzly bears!!
May 16th, 2011  
@kdimagery - those people maybe missing limbs as well as brain cells?
May 17th, 2011  
@bobfoto haha. i am sure some are missing limbs and brain cells yes!! but there is a guy who lives with one, and the bear eats at a table and everything...and he is huuuuge. haha. it is really quite krazy.
May 17th, 2011  
@kdimagery - like they say "It can only happen in Canada!"
May 18th, 2011  
Nice drops!
November 12th, 2011
