Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
- Anonymous

A glimpse of new life contrasting with the golden but now dying autumn leaves of our deciduous Magnolia. Taken with a Canon EOS 450D, 55-250 zoom hand held on full zoom, very lightly edited in Photoshop CS3.

FEATURED in Absolute Clarity 5 July 2010

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.

    Beautiful image and meaning. I’ve always loved that quote…

  • Thanks so much Betsy – it’s magical to be able to capture a special moment, I guess that’s why we become photographers :))

    It is magical!!

  • I was going to wait until the next day to take the photo Betsy, and I am so glad I didn’t because all those golden leaves were gone in a windstorm a few hours later – hence the name and the quote!
