  3. Autumn (sorry Fall) has always been my favourite season, the colours and the feel of the time… this is a beautiful photograph of that! It’s almost like that one red leaf is standing to attention protecting all the yellow leaves behind it (yes I have a vivid imagination). So glad I saw this pic on my wanders 🙂

    • Thanks so much, Naresh! This was a very easy shot; The leaf had just fallen and I just put the camera on the ground and clicked. 🙂

    • Thanks so much! But I can’t take credit for the colors, they leaf just landed like that right there 🙂 and the sunlight did the rest!

          • You will begin seeing smaller and smaller things. It helps to have a curious mind and no intention.
