A winter abstract!




 Leaves float silently down
Yellow, orange.. and brown
The wind blowing them all around
Before they languish on the ground...

You've seen my rustique (?) homemade birdbath before.. usually with a bird in it :) After the strong winds we've had over the last week it's surprising that there are any autumn leaves, barely hanging on, left to fall! Zooming in on the leaves and reflections in the water, adding a touch of this a smidge of that et voilà a winter abstract! It's going to be a wet and wild weekend here in Perth, hoping to get out and capture some of it! Bon weekend, take care..

  2. Lovely! I like winter......it's much like yours but a little bit more subtle I think. No aircon with doors and windows open:) Very lovely image.

  7. That's very pretty and very creative, Grace! Good on you! I prefer winter in the abstract, actually. Especially in the north. Winter in the reality is just too darn cold! :)

  12. That's a really nice abstract. I like to think of pictures like this as a mini-landscape; it gives you a feel for the wider scene.

  13. Ahh...shades of winter weather sound so refreshing right about now. I love the golden leaves. We are in for a scorcher of a weekend here in the desert. I wish we could get some of your wet and wild.

  15. Strange to see autumn colours at your place, when I think of Australia I always see sunshines in my mind. We have the longest day with daylight here today, midsummer, with daylight until 10.30 PM. Keep going.

  16. There is a certain "style" of your bird feeder. We have two we devised ourselves, but I like yours better than ours. The top photo reminds me of a kaleidoscope. Lovely.

  17. I guess this weekend would include the shortest days of the year for you.

  18. Feels like autumn here, too, Grace - just not with dying leaves.
    Official first day of summer today (21st, longest day, too).
    I wear: T-shirt, sweater and jacket. 15C, cloudy and windy. Brrrr.

  19. what a lovely yard you have Grace...love your bird bath! I keep forgetting that our seasons are not the same so it was a bit of a wake up call to see your vibrant fall colors...that's about 6 or 7 months away for us here in Florida...some years we have the fall color, sometimes not. so happy you're having rain, wonderful stuff :) happy weekend!
