  6. Very evocative and meditational. The fourth one’s my favorite. Hope you didn’t get too wet lying prone to make the shots.

    • Very nice words, Gary…thank you. The fourth one is also my favorite…I like the colors and the long crop. And no, I didn’t get too wet down there…I actually cheated and held the camera down there as I kneeled in the trail…and took a bunch of photos, hoping for the best with the essentially blind shots…I’m glad they turned-out as well as they did…thank you again….

      • That’s not cheating, but rather the result of experience, wisdom, and perhaps just a smidgen of luck and laziness. But if you got the shot you want, it’s worth whatever it took.

        • Thanks, Gary…seems to have worked this time, whatever it was. 🙂

  9. Looks like we’re getting to the end of autumn leaves when you’re shooting them with raindrops on the ground. Lovely images, as usual.

    November 8, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    • Oh yes, they were mostly on the ground, Gunta, very little still on the trees. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. 🙂

  10. These are tricky to capture Scot, but you’ve done well. I was looking at some leaves in our garden jewelled by raindrops the other day and wondering whether to try photographing them. Maybe I’ll give it a go next time it rains.

    • I think I was rather fortunate to capture them as I did, Andy; as I mentioned to Gary above, I was holding the camera down at trail-level and snapping the shots…hoping for the best. Many didn’t turn-out well, as might be expected, but these seemed to have done ok…with a little cropping, of course. 🙂

    absolutely superb…a great idea and a great capture

    • Thank you very much, SP. 🙂

  12. No snow yet? We saw our first flakes today.

    • When these were taken, no…I took these the same day I shot the ones from the “Frost-ing” post a little earlier…what a difference a 1,000 ft or so in elevation can make….

  13. Nice!

    November 8, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    • Thank you, Terry. 🙂

  14. Great discerning eye….and very neat photos Scott….always something interesting going on here……I should-ought-better learn from this ….never think of getting down and personal with the vegetation……….perhaps I should drink more, then falling over would become a habit…..

    November 9, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    • Thank you, John…and yes, the falling over might become more of a habit, but I would imagine that it’s rather hard to make the wonderful photos that you do if it became too much of a habit…and you’d get a bit wetter over there than I would here…. 😉

  15. Fresh and earthy. Vital.
