One of the things that I look forward to in the fall is the time when the color of the leaves change. Tonight I decided to post a couple of leaf pictures that I have taken through the years that bring back a few memories.
The first one has some interesting white leaves.This picture was taken in Berlin about seven years ago. I had gone out for a long walk and found this beautiful collection of fall leaves. I really like the way that the white leaves stand out against both the cobblestone sidewalk and the yellow and red leaves. I had gone to Berlin to make a presentation. It was a follow-up presentation for an award that our training team had won the previous year. Seeing this picture brought back some good memories of both the great teamwork involved in winning the award and also the nice trip to Berlin.
Next we have two yellow leaves.These two leaves caught my eye again while going through some of my pictures. The picture was taken while I was taking a walk around my neighborhood three years ago. I saw these two leaves growing out of the trunk of a tree. I like the way that they have a red tinge around the edges. I took many other pictures that day as it was a beautiful day for a walk. However, these leaves composed the picture that popped out from the rest. I am looking forward to the next couple months when I can take a similar walk and find many colorful leaves.
Next we take a short trip to Indiana.These leaves were lying on the steps leading up to the front door of the General Lew Wallace Study in Crawfordsville, Indiana. For a picture of the study, look back at my post on Ben-Hur. I just had to stop and take a picture of these perfectly placed leaves. The picture was taken in mid-September, just a week or so before the first day of fall. Thinking back, it really shows how the colors of fall start to appear at different times in different areas of the country. Our height of color here in California comes much later. Usually in November or December.
The last picture I will share this evening was taken in late November several years ago.
In this picture I love the vibrant yellow and gold of the leaves against the background of the evergreen tree and the beautiful blue sky. A beautiful late fall day. A beautiful sight to take in while recovering from a wonderful Thanksgiving Day meal in Groveland, California.
I hope you have enjoyed this splash of colorful leaves as you look forward to seeing these colors where you live.
