“Sun Flare” 2

Well, I thought we may need a bit of sunshine today, left over from last summer’s flowers! I don’t know about your location, but it’s cold and rainy here, and has been cloudy for a good long while!
Last summer the flowers in our local botanical garden weren’t as abundant as usual because of the severe drought, but despite that, some hearty survivors gave a good show!
This is some type of sunflower. These seem to range in color from reds to yellows. With brown, mahogany or dark purple centers, and can tolerate dry soil, and drought! Thankfully!!
I hope this brightens your day if you too are having a dark and rainy day! 🙂

A bit of sunshine on a dreary day!

“Autumn on Campus”

There’s something so inviting and beautiful when you think about school, or college campuses during autumn’s colorful foliage season!
This image is no exception. It was taken a couple of months ago at the very end of peak color. The combination of the trees and their foliage, the pathways, lamp posts, and buildings seemed to all just flow together into one lovely autumn image! Enjoy! 🙂

Amazing autumn color on a university campus!

“Laser Tag”

I had some fun with lights in this image. Lots of color going in every direction. The first thought that came to my mind was laser Tag!
So, enjoy this colorful abstract light image!! 🙂

“Unspoken”

"Unspoken"
Wonderful back lit woodlands of Birch and Maples!

The wonderful late afternoon sunlight comes strongly from behind the trees illuminating the gold and yellow highlights in the background.
The oranges and greens of the maple leaves, as well as the colors of the birch bark become deepened. All happening in silence. All simply; unspoken beauty!
