Crisp and Golden

Acorns and leaves

Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple… ~J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow

Taking this online Lightroom class has really affected my time to just get outside with my camera. I took a break yesterday and did just that. It was nice to snap a few photos and do a little editing. We have an electrical grate in our yard that makes a beautiful backdrop for photos; something in the plastic has a bit of a sheen to it that really pops in PSE. Here is a shot I captured of some beautiful acorns on a sprig of turning leaves. Autumn is here! She shows here face a little more each day. Thank you for stopping by...I'm wishing you a wonderful week.

  8. I agree the class is keeping me busy too, but I find I am anxious to get outside and take photos now that I have even more to do with them :)

  9. Aah, this is lovely. You know, I've been in much the same boat over here... taking too many classes. They are so fun but I haven't been taking many pictures lately. Must fix that!

  10. Wow, you're right about the background. Hope you have a wonderful week, as well. But not like the greatest week ever or anything, because then every other week from here on out would be a disappointment :)
