The leaves have those stunning autumn colours, and the golden and scarlet colours last such a little while.Soon the leaves all fall to the ground and fade to a dull fawn, then wither and crumble to nothing.
Next year we will see this all over again, nature is truly wonderful.
Last night there was a Perigee Full Moon, ( the point where the moon is closest to the earth) and I thought that I had a good photo.HOWEVER, when I looked on the net today, I can see what I should have been taking, not just the moon, but something in the foreground as well. I have so much to learn with this camera and also composition of the photos.
Shadows on the grass at the park, where the Constables and Dog Handlers take their dogs for training., Under the tree was a magpie, the bird had found someone’s left-over lunch and was busy having a feed. It flew off when I approached, and I didn’t see it again.
I have some sewing to do, and YES, more muffins to bake. Emails from home tell me Hugh is having a great time, he has taken Janet on some adventure trips, a day
on the beach from Himitangi to Foxton and back, and today will be in the Ruahines, if the huge washouts are filled in, up to the Red A Frame DOC hut.
Part of the road on the way to the A Frame.
Maybe tonight the moon will be as bright, and now I have better ideas for the photos, will be able to brave the cold night air and focus on another shot.
Quotation of the day, from W Clement Stone
“Aim for the moon.If you miss, you may hit a star”
