Macro Monday - Fallen Leaves.


The damp of autumn can bring many pleasures – and one of them is the sheen of colour the coats things on damp afternoons.  I was about to sweep the leaves from the paths around the house when I noticed that the colours of the stones in the concrete made a nice counterpoint to the silver birch leaves.
Never needed much of an excuse to put down the garden tools I did and picked up my camera instead!   
You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday.

Hello Stewart. Beautiful autumn picture you show. Personally I really like the autumn, with all its golden colors. Trees stand here with bright green leaves, and everything pops out. Wishing you a good Sunday. Hanne Bente

I do like how the colored stones pick up the color of the leaves.
A lovely shot Stewart and worthy of framing!

I like the contrast between the pebbles and the leaves--it does look a lot like fall. :)

There's nothing like gathering a pile of leaves then start throwing 'em around like confetti, its good fun :-).
