Some Autumn Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Let’s hear it for the leaves prompt.

Most of the leaves in this part of Ontario have been off the trees for a while now. However, a few weeks ago I started picking up interesting leaves with the intention of doing some table top studio photos using them. The fallen leaves have been buried under snow a few times since I started collecting them.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Bright Squares Month and is my day 25 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

A fallen Maple leaf on a weathered limestone boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Not a selective colour treatment, the colour and tones are pretty much as they came out of the camera. I used Snapseed to add a vignette and lens blur around the edges of the frame to focus attention on the leaf.

Late Summer Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Ordinary Everyday Objects prompt.

I had photographed various Maple leaves on a couple of recent walks around the neighborhood. It occurred to me that there wasn’t many things more ordinary and everyday in this part of Ontario, especially at this time of year. After all, there’s a red Maple leaf on the Canadian flag.
