I a sucker for a big old tree, especially when it’s showing such nice Autumn colours.
The leaves of the Japanese Maple were hanging down heavy with the rain.
A Japanese Maple and a House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) both make for a pretty Autumn image.
I generally don’t let the weather dictate what I do. If we did that, we’d all be housebound and stir crazy! We have another rainy day here, but I let this Japanese Maple in our yard, brighten my day. The raindrops enhance the leaves. This tree is really full of all these pretty red leaves!
This Japanese Maple is in our front yard. The other night, about midnight I was out there and noticed how the light was playing with the bright red leaves. A little help from my flash and this resulted. I like it, hope you do too!
