I always feel so much more inspired when we have Camera Club. I was leaving work last night and after a very dark dreary day, the sun found its way through the clouds. It was a very soft light, but with the fall colours and almost mist like look it was beautiful! As I was driving it felt like everything was catching my eye, from the beautiful colours on the trees to the cows in the field with the sunlight softly flowing over top of them from the barn.
This is what happens when a photographer leaves her camera at home – it never fails! However knowing rain was on the way for the next few days, I made the most of the little light we had left and grabbed my camera for a quick fall colours tour.
First stop… was to let the kids play in the leaves.
This shot totally warms my heart. This is THEM. They are best buds and rarely fight. When they do fight, one of them can’t stand the silence or arguing and will begin joking around. I am so very thankful for them. They have made me who I am today and each day only gets better. I cherish every moment we have, for we do not know what tomorrow may bring. ❤
I got to go by myself on a quick photo tour to take in the early evening fall colours. When taking in all this fall beauty I did something I have truly never did before. I took a photo one direction, turned 180 degrees and took a photo behind me. It was so amazing to see the difference, not only the beauty but the road, the path. Much like the road of life. As an artist, with the inspiration of our upcoming camera club meeting that evening, I pushed myself to think outside of the box. To just look. When you stop to look, there is so much to see, so much to appreciate.
There is just something about this shot that after I took the one above, I turned and saw this. This was the exact lighting, very soft almost dreary looking as the sun was behind a cloud. With cows and a barn in the distance. So peaceful, so real – small town living!
When it comes to photography – always turn around, look the other direction, you will be amazed at what you see!
Enjoy this wonderful season and all the beauty it brings to us !
Appreciate where you’ve come from, for it will shape you for where you are going.
