Red in the rain

During a rather damp walk home from work I noticed these red leaves.  I liked the bright colour and the wet rain shine surfaces.  I also wanted to find out how the camera on my phone would deal with less than perfect like; pretty well, I'd say.





I also liked the sycamore / maple (who knows) seeds in the second picture.

You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday2 and I Heart Macro.  SM

May be wet, but it's a beautiful Autumn in your neck of the woods. Cell phone cameras can do an amazing job in the right hands. Yours are!

Beautiful fall leaves!

Such lovely color of the leaves. Yes, those surely look like maple seeds. Not a typical fall sight in this end of the world.

Beautiful colours! I've never taken a photo with my phone, but I don't think it would do this well.

Beautiful colors of the leaves.
The camera in the phone is quite good.

Beautiful reds in the leaves. It's hard to wrap my mind around your fall progressing Down Under.

Those are lovely. I can't take a decent picture with my cell phone.
