Colorful Oak Leaf Against Blue Sky 0773

I didn’t show you a lot of fall foliage in 2015, so here, belatedly, is an oak leaf I photographed along Rain Creek Parkway on December 6th last year.

  2. Now that is some strong colour. Deserving of the extra vowel.

    • I have a feeling you’ve been reading comments from one of your correspondents in New Zealand or Australia or Hong Kong.

  3. There are still Oak leaves hanging on in the snow on some trees where I am. Such a pretty color this one is

    • We still have some oak leaves too. I didn’t see much color from them this past autumn, but the one in the photograph was an exception, and the backlighting was important in bringing out its color.

  4. There is so much I appreciate about this picture, Steve, but I’ve said the same things many times before. I feel like you will tire of the comments so I’ll just say it’s a picture that makes me smile and holds my gaze for a long time. Isn’t it a buzz to be able to give pleasure to people from across the globe through your photography? 🙂

    • It is, Jane, and I’ll keep on appreciating your enthusiastic comments in support of nature.

  6. I love the texture.

    • The original image, which is much larger than this Internet version, shows a lot more texture.

  7. A few age spots, some prominent veins, a crack or two in the structure, splotchy color, a bit nibbled around the edges — and yet it remains beautiful. It’s rather an optimistic image, really.

  8. Simply beautiful.
    Have a great day,

  10. Such a wonderful way to start the day. Sharing a bit of something beautiful is a lot like sharing kindness, it is always as good for the giver as it is for those who share the treasure of the gift itself…Have a great day Steve.
