The last leaf hanging

 The last autumnal maple leaf, Zurich, Switzerland

This time it is not two, but only one leaf. Close to where we live, there is a square with a collection of small maple trees that turn beautifully red and yellow in autumn. Usually on the weekends, I pass by and create a few photographs; often of the same leaf every week. Most of the trees are bare now, but a few leaves are still hanging. Just today I have been searching for new fall color compositions among those trees and leaves, but the lonely leaf above was already captured a few weeks ago.

I wish you a good Sunday and a nice week!

2 x 2 beech leaves

 Autumnal beech leaves in a small creek, Frillensee, Inzell, Germany

There is not much to say about these two photographs of two beech leaves. I enjoy walking along and in rivers and creeks in autumn to search for stranded, colourful leaves that are bathed by the flowing water. I hope you enjoy and wish you a good week!

2 Autumn color compositions

Bud and red petioles surrounded by autumnal leaves, Zurich, Switzerland

Now that it is almost winter, cold outside, and most of the leaves have fallen, I finally start showing fall photographs. I have promised autumnal compositions for this weekend, but they are/were not ready for display. So here are two very different examples that I just developed for you speedily. Although the two photographs are both a kind of close-up view (and both are in portrait format), they are as different as can be (also with respect to how they were taken). I hope you like at least one of them and wish you a good week!

Iceland nature details

 Morning light in the mountains of Pakgil, Iceland

As promised last week, here is another, last post with Iceland photographs. This time it is not landscape compositions in the classical sense, but rather closer views that I label as "nature details" (sometimes such photographs are also designated "intimate landscapes"). For me, these are photographs that are neither true landscapes (with a horizon and at least some sky), nor close up or macro photographs, but something in between. Another composition from this category was shown in the Jökulsarlon glacier lagoon post (the second photograph) and I do have a few more that will appear in the future in the nature details gallery. If you want, you may also have a look at a few birds we managed to photograph during our trip in the animals gallery (the first eight photographs are from Iceland).
Next week, I hope to start showing new fall color compositions from this season. Until then, have a good week!
