Fall in Black and White!!!!

It's so easy to see nature in all it's glorious colors........but try to see it in another form...
in Black and White!

at night!!!!

during the day.....

In the mellow patina of aging unprotected pine on an old shed. Nature taking it's course.

Unoccupied birdhouse and the last breath of flora before the winter takes it away.

The silhouette of the branches are more prominent when you are not distracted by it's usual fiery hues.

Sun on the trees and warmth on my hair

and on the fallen leaves in an old rusted birdbath.

Try to enjoy the last days of Fall til we get to the next season....
my favorite of all!
Have a great Sunday!

Your photography is just superb and now it is my turn to say... how on earth did you leave that one touch of orange in your B&W... clever girl.

Once again I have missed b&w [2 weeks now.. boo hoo] here I am still working Sunday night nearing 11pm.. that's my lame excuse!! haha

Have fun and thanks for sharing your glorious photos.. xx Julie

Carole!! These are some of your best shots ever!! So beautiful and thoughtful and your hair shot is fabulous and unexpected. Love it! Love the b+w with just hints of color and of course the shot up the tree is so dramatic with the strong shadows! The first shot of the lone oak leaf is very evocative and stunningly simple. got it goin on today! Happy Sunday to you, my dear!
