Leaf Aglow

Leaf Aglow - Image c Lynda Lehmann

A single leaf on the road is brilliant in color, almost to the point of iridescence.  The seasons move fast past the windows of our lives, replete with change and dynamism.  I like to look closely, to fill my cup of beauty with the nuances I see every day.

What have you seen today, that gave you joy and inspired your love of life?

  1. Beautiful light, contrast, and texture!

  2. Wow! that leaf on the road is breathtaking!You've got such a good eye for details that could make a great shot!

    To answer your question - during the last two days we have nothing to give us joy here as there are big fires in the north of the country. I live in the center, but I have relatives there that have been evacuated from their homes. Hope things will improve tomorrow.

  3. San - Thanks for visiting! Of the many fallen leaves I saw this fall, I think this one had the most color. So many were just browned out, as if they went from vibrant green to wholly lifeless, overnight. I'm glad I had my camera in tow, for this one!

  4. DUTA - I heard about that terrible fire from an artist friend who lives in Israel. She said 40 people could not get out, and died in the fire. Do they know what started it?

    I hope that it will be extinguished soon, and that further loss of lives and property will be avoided. So much tragedy. My heart goes out to you and your relatives and all the other people who are affected.

  5. Hey Lynda firstly thank you for visiting my blog. So what have I seen today. Well the only thing I look at all day these days is Matthew, lol, seeing his beautiful smile, angry face sometimes, serious face, laughing face, stubborn face are things that are filled in my head and in my camera.

    Looks like we are getting closer and closer to the snow. It should be fun, hopefully this year we will be go down the hill.

    We are over the colds and flues, but unfortunately everyone around his still have them, so we have to say away a bit.

    Lynda enjoy your time, and always it is nice to see your creations and photos.

    Anna :)

  6. Yes, the seasons are moving way too fast for me!

    What have you seen today, that gave you joy and inspired your love of life? A: My wife of course!

    As for the picture, I think I see a bat or is it a ghost! I think I need to see the strink! Oh my!

    Take Care,

  7. what a beautiful find. brings a smile to my face. i would have to say i've been enjoying the snow today even though it wasn't the 'BIG' snow i was hoping for.

    congrats on your design below.

    (The Monastery Within) i'm always searching for the beauty of life in the smallest of things.

    hope all is well.

  8. ANNA - I remember so well the days when our daughter was little and my days were filled with her antics. I hope you enjoy every little nuance, because you'll find that each year the time goes faster--until before you know it, they are grown up and gone!

  9. PETER - Always the romantic! It's so nice to hear someone say that. I don't think I know a lot of folks who will say after years of marriage, that their spouse truly inspires their joy of life! The more power to ya!

    As for the bat in the photo, well, he's scaring me too! lol...

  10. Naquillity - It's good to see you. No snow here yet, and I can't say I'm looking forward to it. In past years I didn't mind the cold. But now I do; I must be getting old!

  11. Hi Lynda...You found me and now I'm so happy to have found you! The leaf is so of my favorite things about fall is the incredible patterns and colors in the leaves!

  12. Lynda, the colors are remarkable. You have such a great artistic eye. Every visit I make here offers, beauty and tranquility.

  13. Outside The Lines - Pattern and color... Me, too! What more can an artist ask for? Except to meet other creative spirits on the net and share our inspiration! Yes, I'm glad I found you, too!

  14. Cher - I'm happy to have you visit and if you find some beauty here, that's all the better!

  15. Mark - Thank you and thanks for visiting. I just checked out your site and I see we have a similar interest in all things visual, especially nature's patterns. Happy New Year to you!
