Sunday Stills - The First Signs Of Fall

Even on the Sundays I don't get a Sunday Stills post up, I always look forward to checking what the next week's challenge will be. I knew the First Signs of Fall would be fun, especially here where we are having a nice stretch of fall weather, enough rain to green things back up and fall crops ready for harvest.

Driving up to Stella's one afternoon for the epic table cloth sewing venture, I saw leaves floating down from one of her trees and thought how fun it would be to try to capture a leave falling to the ground. I don't have great manual focus skills though and knew it was probably hopeless.









Hee hee - a spinning sister to the rescue!

For more Sunday Stills...

Yesterday in my post I had a hanging leaf too, but it was attached to a spider web--It was fun trying to get a picture of it as it twisted in the wind--I am embarrassed to admit how many I took before I got one that I liked.

Very nice, inspirational and motivating, I'll have to try something like that.

Love these floating leaves, Sara! Gunky and I are catching up on our Patchin' tonight :) I especially love the wool dye batch you just made - those shades of brown are gorgeous.
