Wordless Wednesday: The Last to Go

Yes. Another dead leaf. I can't seem to help myself. I was out for a walk on Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the play of light on this leaf. The sunlight was very bright, and I enjoyed the way it highlighted the minutest of details. I especially like walking in these leaves; they are the noisiest.

  4. Hi Sandy.
    Beautiful shot of an ordinary leaf -- the shadow gives it a dramatic effect, and the details (bits of dirt coating the leaf, as well as the leaf pattern) gives it texture.

  7. Here the leaves are covered with snow, but I did enjoy crunching through them on my daily walks while they lasted.

  8. Interesting catch! I love walking through leaves too -- I shuffle my feet and sorta kick them in the air! Ü No snow here yet but its been cold enough to get some. . . I can hardly wait!

  10. Autumn is a special season. A wonderful time for reflecting and brightened up by the crackling sound of dried leaves when stepped upon.

    Happy WW Ms. Sandy!

  11. i don't blame you for taking photos of them... they can be hypnotizing especially when you see them floating around and finally finding their resting place on the leaf-covered ground...

  16. Can it be said then, 'Dead men dont speak but dead leaves dont stop (speaking)', since they are the noiciest?

  22. Oh yes a noisy leaf is fun:) and I do like that light too

  23. How beautiful, a lovely photograph. One of the nicest things of this time of the year is to hear the crunch of leaves under the feet. Another favorite visual of mine is to drive along this one little road near here, with overhanging branches on each side of the road, almost like a cathedral roof, and to watch the leaves fall and hear them under the car as you drive by.

    The use of light and shadow makes this a very dramatic photograph.

  28. The most thrilling sound I've ever heard-
    "walking in these leaves...they are the NOISIEST." You made me smile. Pre-cochlear-implant, it's impossible to hear this sound, but now I know what you're talking about. Thanks to one the best hearing technology.

    There is something nice about walking on try, dead leaves. Dry and dead is really only our perception. Great photos, Sandy!

  35. Ordinary things become wonderful through your lense, Sandy.
    I'm always thinking : How is it possible that I haven't had that same idea before? You know watching attentively.

  36. I love seeing things through your eyes like this and right now I'd love to find a crunchy pile of leaves to walk through.
    Hugs and blessings,
