Floating Colors

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Floating Colors
Floating Colors
While out raking up the last leaves in the yard and enjoying the quiet of our neighborhood, I notice some colorful leaves from my weeping mulberry tree floating in the gray bird bath. The sun was casting a shadow on top of the water from the maple tree branches with just the right amount of highlights. Well, I just had to run and get my camera. It truly is amazing how many photos are just waiting to be captured if one just opens their eyes and enjoys the quiet of the moment.
“A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy dare live” ~Bertrand Russell
