Out Of Place

Uploaded: October 15, 2007


For the PG101 theme "Leaves"
Paint effect created in PhotoArt Master Classic. I noticed this one fallen leaf caught in an evergreen tree. It looked out of place surrounded by all the green. Being in Florida, we don't have autumn leaves. Any bit of color we do have comes much later than October. We are still swimming in the pool here! :)

Jane, thank you so much for your kind comment! Are you in Florida?

Judy, thank you so much for your encouraging words! I couldn't remember if the leaves are still hanging around in November or if the trees would be bare. I hope there is some color left when I get there! I am excited about shooting with you and finding those covered bridges! #4928709
