The Falling Leaves by grammyn

The Falling Leaves

Working in the yard on Saturday I thought of the perfect song title for this photo. Missed the last challenge by a day or two but Frogger, who won the last one made the new challenge retroactive so I get to use my idea! Frank Sinatra calls it Falling Leaves. Nat calls it Autumn Leaves. Either one fits but I liked Nat's rendition better.
Beautiful photo!! Looks like a bit of our wind made it to your area...

December 3rd, 2019

I've always wanted to get a shot like this but never seem to be around when the wind and leaves are dancing together. Good one!

This is so cool!! Great timing with the falling leaves and looks great with that big blue sky and clouds.

@taffy Thanks Taffy. I hadn't noticed that but you are so right! @ludwigsdiana They do look a bit like that. Thanks Diana
@30pics4jackiesdiamond it was much better in person but thank you so much
@mzzhope I am so glad you do too Hope. High praise coming from someone who does so many great nature shots!
@olivetreeann It has been on my bucket list for years too and there is still lots of room for improvement with this one..but it is a start Thank Ann
@cjphoto I am happy you like it,especially the sky and clouds because I had another with no clouds and debated. Thanks for the affirmation Chris

@grammyn - You're welcome! The clouds really adds some liveliness to the shot in my opinion so it was a good decision.

I thought of birds, too. Looks like your wind there could rival our Kansas wind. How great you can use it for the challenge. Good song, good photo.
December 5th, 2019  
beautiful sky as well.
December 5th, 2019  
You have to be underneath the falling leaves to photograph them! Not always easy! A high wind in a high tree would work!

A wonderful fall image.
December 8th, 2019  
@mcsiegle Thanks Mary. I doubt the wind here is anything like it is in Kansas!
@sdutoit how very nice of you Sylvia. I am so glad you like it!
@maggiemae it has taken me years to learn that Maggiemae

Pretty... I like the leaves against the blue sky.
December 10th, 2019  
Well captured! They look like birds or little kites. A few days ago there was a shower of golden leaves in my backyard, but by the time I got my camera, the wind had died down and the leaves were on the ground.... Hope things are going well.

@kwind So very nice of you! Thanks and deepest apologies for not getting to this until now~!
December 27th, 2019  
This is very hard to capture . At least for me it is. Thanks so much for the wonderful Christmas card. It put a big smile 😀 in my face.
December 29th, 2019  
@lesip Thanks It has taken me a long time to figure out how to get it to show right in camera and this is not a very good offering but I am OK with it. Happy New Year dear friend!
January 1st, 2020  
Now I'm humming. Happy New Year, Katy.

January 5th, 2020  
Hi Katy, Happy New Year to you and family, hope studies put on hold over Christmas and you relaxed?!
January 5th, 2020  
@30pics4jackiesdiamond ThanksJackie and to you and yours too! I have been enjoying some time off but start back with a vengeance next week for the final four months.
January 5th, 2020  
Thank you so much for the lovely Christmas card! I hope you've enjoyed the time off but more importantly that the final four months go smoothly and have classes in them that you'll really enjoy taking. Happy New Year to you and your family!
January 5th, 2020  
@olivetreeann thank you for all your well wishes Ann. I had a long enough vacation that I am dreading going back but only four months to go is a definite "carrot " for me!
January 7th, 2020  
Great shot... I like the leaves against the blue.
January 10th, 2020  
@eudora I am so sorry I didin't ever respond to you Diane! I just noticed that l missed it somehow. I know I read your great comment and empathized with you about seeing the leaves, getting the camera and then having no more leaves to fall. I felt certain that was going to happen this time for me too but I got lucky.
Thanks for the good wishes. I am about to start my final four months of school and hope I can get through it without too much difficulty. It has been so nice to have some time off and I dread getting back into it.

@kwind Thanks again Kim
