In the dark shadows of eighty foot conifers and maples, golden sunbeams trickle through to reveal the first signs of fall on the forest floor. Soon there will be a carpet of bright colors crunching under foot with each step, accompanied by the sound of ducks and geese flying overhead. Then the smell of mowing hay fields, and the sound of stillness with children having returned to school. Bright orange pumpkins, walnuts, apples, pears and grapes will be in the market place. Some times the delicious fragrance of fresh baked apple pie will be wafting through the neighborhood. It’s almost here! Elaine

My camera is a Panasonic LUMIX FH27 digital
The camera setting I used here is Candle Light.

I enthusiastically love playing with art, exploring new mediums and new things with old mediums! Started when I could hold a pencil and am still going.
