Fall Beauty

This past Friday, since it was one of those gorgeous blue-sky Fall days you get sometimes, I took lunch a little early and stepped outside to get some pictures.

I love using the angle of the sun to backlight leaves and flowers and fragile things. It lets you see their structure and colors in a whole new way.

I went out again as the evening was coming on, hoping to get some ‘golden hour’ shots, but I misjudged it and lost the light a lot faster than I had anticipated (I can’t actually see a window from my cube). It did let me play around with some fun silhouettes, though.

Today was cloudy and rainy and colder, but now I have these pictures to remind me of the things I do love about Fall. As I’ve said before, four seasons took me some getting used to, but I like that my photography can help me find God’s beauty in all of them.
