Shadow Shot Sunday (leaf it with me?)

It is November and most leaves have found their final resting place for the year ...
They still look beautiful to me and I can't resist taking their picture in shadows and light.
This "spotlight" looks like it was created just for them .. what would shadows be without light ?
Tracy who is aka Hey Harriet collects all of us Shadow Shooters, to show off our captures for this meme .. so make sure to have a look over at her place !

It's a beautiful photo of autumn leaves in spotlight and shadow. Not as beautiful as Sophie and Emma, but lovely in its own way. LOL

Diane AZ said...

All those colors and the spot-lighting are just beautiful! Delightful header photo too. :)

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

That is a great shot of the leaves.

Shirley said...

Shadows without light to illumate the object would be nothing, in fact. I love this leafy photo.

Pat said...

Nice :)
Fall sure does offer colors you just don't see any other time of the year.

Alissa Nicolau said...

Beautiful shadow shot. Looks like a real art piece. Great job!

EG CameraGirl said...

This is wonderful how the light is shining on the leaves. I agree that the leaves are still beautiful in their final resting place. :)

Hi Joy Dear, I love your new header photo! It looks holiday-ish without being too holiday-ish, if you know what I mean. Nice shadow shot too, of course. :)

Thanks Sylvia .. I hate letting go of Autumn so I will be dragging it out as long as possible : ) have a great weekend too !

Hello Diane and thank you very much : ) I'm swapping the header picture out weekly for something new during this long drawn out winter coming .. we all need a little change right ? LOL

Thanks Linda girl : ) I bet you have been having the hard frosts too over there ? love the affect for pictures !

Thank you Shirley .. it is a wonderful contrast we chase isn't it ? .. I can't imagine not seeing that ? : )

Patsi girl I would not survive in a country without the full four seasons especially Fall .. can you imagine me not having October ??LOL

Thank you Alissa : ) I stumble on some beauties some times .. they are keepers : )

EG Thank you ! .. this year has flown by and I am trying to hold on to Autumn as long as possible ... my back garden is a source of great comfort with my maples and their beautiful leaves !

Hello Grace girl ! Thank you : ).. I am swapping out the header once a week for a change .. I have loads of pictures so why not highlight one a week eh?

I love the header of the single leaf - just gorgeous!
The photo of leaves is lovely as well!
Great shot for the week!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Thanks Beverley .. the leaves are so beautiful even when frozen aren't they ? :)

Tessa said...

I so love your obsessions! You know when a shot is an image not a picture when it invokes thought-

Did you change your layout- I love it!

Happy coming winter (and loony time) to you, Joy

Inspired photo in this post, but it's that header photograph that really made me gasp. Fabulous, Joy, just fabulous.

Gorgeous post, Joy! I love your sentence, "most leaves have found their final resting place for the year". You are a fine writer, you know. :)

Tessa girl I forgot to grab your address to add to my blog roll .. I won't forget this time ! LOL
Thank you so much : ) I have my moments when the pictures I have captured truly take on a life of their own and I am in love with them? Yes : ) I have been experimenting with the templates and pictures and it is FUN!
Yup .. it will soon be LOONY time for me .. usually the 2nd of January and those long winter months roll out ?
Hope you are well ! wink wink

Thank you Jodi girl .. that morning I was in my big PINK fluffy housecoat wandering the back yard mesmerized with how absolutely gorgeous the individual leaves that were frozen and looking stunning. I was lucky to get just the right ones : )

Ms S You are so sweet! Thank you!
I swing from a head full of nonsense to a head that has some profound thinking at times ? LOL
I never know which way it will go and grab that single thought while I can !! wink wink
