Arrow Photo Challenge #57 ~ Leaf Peeping {11-1-09}

Happy November all! Ever hear of "leaf peeping"? Leaf peeping is an actual autumn activity in places where the foliage changes colors seasonally and leaf peepers are those who participate in photographing and viewing the fall foliage. Now I know that we don't all live in areas that change for the fall, but this week's challenge is to focus on leaves and that can mean leaves of any kind. Show us what's hanging around in your neck of the woods!


Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at anytime!
~ Again - HAVE FUN!

Default leaf peeping

Great leaf peeping pictures Angie. After work yesterday I went to a lake in

town and took some pictures which included some leaf peeping. The color

was pretty against the blue sky and on the ground.

Very nice photos so far!

I like this red and yellow leaf in the dark shadows, it was taken with the night setting on the camera.

What a fun challenge and a great way to get different perspectives on leaves. I love the bright vibrant colors so far, and really like the iced leaf.

This was taken two days ago at my son's birthday celebration.

Leaves of a book OK??
We've had major wind and many of the trees are bare, but I'm sure I'll find something. Love ALL the leaf photos so far.

This wasn't too hard - plenty of leaves around here!!!

This (that is, the one of all the red, purple, and green leaves) is my first serious manual shot... I mean, I've shot in manual some, but none of them really turned out any good, you know? But I'm rather pleased about this one!! =) What do you all think?!

I've got a friend who does professional wedding photography. Well, he always, always, always shoots in manual. He teases all of us who don't by calling the auto mode the "little green box of death," because, on Canons, which is what we both have, the auto mode is indicated by a little green box. So I said that this shot was my attempt to "step outside the little green box of death!!"

Becca, those colours are just gorgeous. We've had so much rain this fall that the leaves didn't give us a great show (at least around here). They went from green to a couple of (rainy) days of yellow and to brown and falling off the trees. I was waiting to get out and take some lovely fall shots with no luck. The only trees that seemed to have red colour were the "burning bushes" in peoples' yards.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks! We have had tons of rain this fall too! This is one of the first weeks that we have had without rain in about a month, maybe two. The mountains were gorgeous this year. I love living near the Smoky Mountains!! Especially, in the fall.

I love fall pictures. All of these have been great. Our leaves are gone already and even those on the ground have been sucked up by the city. Only leave pictures I have are from last month. :s

Sometimes photos are just that........pictures to look at, but there's something about fall colors that draw you in and put you right in that place, as if you are actually there. So it is with all these photos. They are all great! Well, I haven't even been home from Texas for two days yet, and what do we have? Snow! My first photo was taken this morning, the other two yesterday in my back yard.

It's been grey, wet, grey, windy, grey and rainy here all week.
But when I walked down to the butchers and to get the paper yesterday, I spotted this backlit sycamore leaf on the ground. Being such unpromising weather I only had my pocket camera.

OK, so....I'm just learning to take my camera off the 'auto pilot' and fly a bit more daring. Nothing too difficult yet but it's a start. We've had rain, rain, rain so I thought something a little less drab and a lot less wet, would be nice. (I'm pretending I live in sunny CA) Here's my leaf....

Default The beauty of fall.

This time of the year in Wisconsin where ever there are trees, it looks like God took a paint brush and dabbed here and there in bright colors. This is from my town......
