November 4, 2009 – Fallen leaves

Fallen leaves, Woodland Park, Seattle Washington

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

It’s a gorgeous fall day here in Seattle today, so I decided to stick with the theme. This was taken on the same little outing as yesterday’s picture. I popped Wes in the baby backpack, and took him for a little walk around the park. He fell asleep about 10 feet from the front door, but at least I had a good time.

This time of year, the trees tend to get all of the love. Everybody looks around and says “wow, those trees are awesome!”. But it seems to me that all of the leaves that already fell are at least half of the experience. The yellow and orange light that filters down through the canopy are nice, but the orange/brown ground cover completes the experience. For me anyway. Does this paragraph seem forced at all? Because it totally is. I didn’t want to call it done after just that first half-baked set of comments, so I sat here staring at my keyboard for about 5 minutes trying to think of something else to write.

Now you know.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Tamron 28-75 mm lens. 1/250s, f/5.6, ISO 200. Focal length: 44mm.

    Autumn is my favorite season. I love to walk on the fallen leaves.
