Though the temperatures are still warm…

…Autumn is truly in the air–and in the quality of light.

After catching that chill on Labor Day, I felt really out of sorts health-wise…and the news of the past few days has been even more chilling and very depressing, what with all the ‘war chatter’!

Perhaps a little beauty can brighten our mood?

This is the best macro I've ever gotten of Hibiscus...the light was just right!

Adding the Diffuse Glow filter, using pure white as the glow color, seems to give this deep Pink a much ‘dreamier’ look.

There have been only a few flowers still growing, mostly Marigolds and other annuals…I’ll miss these beautiful Hibiscus, but of course, I’ll always have the images!

  1. don’t be depressed 1000, autumn is coming and that is the best time of year…think of Halloween and the beautiful landscapes and early morning mist….a perfect time for photographs

    • It’s not so much depressing, smacked…more like “I am soooo tired of Summer!” Autumn IS happening, slowly, and my excitement grows every day as I see the little changes in color and light and the ‘heavier’ sounds of mature leaves and grasses in the wind. What depresses me is the ‘war chatter’…and for once, Cameron did absolutely the right thing in very publicly saying “NO!”..unlike our guy, who seems to think he is KING of the world and the world must do his bidding!
