"Come said the wind to the leaves one day, Come o're the meadows and we will play. Put on your dresses scarlet and gold, For summer is gone and the days grow cold."

I was out again today with my camera looking forjust this kind of shot.... I will be showing the soon enough.
This is picture perfect, I love those green veins.

Beautiful and timely choice.

Beautiful autumn leaf! I love how it's colored. Reminds me of the bittersweet feeling of watching the leaves turn and later fall, knowing that the winter's bare branches will only in a few months burst into the green of new leaves.

Rose said...

This is soooo pretty. I just never tire of autumn colors.

Ralph said...

We waited all last winter for the leaves of green. And in May, that seasonal wish came true. The colors of autumn are beautiful, but they portend colder weather, a bit bleaker. So we enjoy this ruby now!

It IS that time of year again, isn't it?

Hello Carletta! What a great ruby representative of fall! I like this shot...

Loree said...

That's beautiful. The red is so vivid. I love it.

Raven said...

Nice. I love the leaves when they are like that. My trees are almost bare already. Getting cold too fast for my taste.

JunieRose2005 said...

It's beautiful, Carletta! The music is too!

Leora said...

Our leaves are still green - this is lovely. Love how it goes straight from green to red, with bits of brown spots.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

I love how caught a little green in there. That is my favorite stage. I have a red leaf today too.

Janice Thomson said...

Ah yes autumn is here in all her glory - a delightful shot Carletta.

Meikah said...

Wow nice capture! This reminds me of the poem/song, "The Last Leaf," though this leaf didn't cling to the vine. :D

My RT entry is here.

Dimple said...

Beautiful autumn leaf. And the music, too!

~Just me again~ said...

That is so pretty, almost artsy!

Pietro said...

Beautiful close up of the leaf, Carletta! What attractive colors, in the green blades of grass!

Felisol said...

Maple leaves are at their best in the fall.
I should want the late summer to stay just a little bit longer.
My voice doesn't count.

Very beautiful, great macro. The trees here are still green with a few turning yellow and gold. No red yet.

Robin said...

I love fall colors, not that I see them myself anymore. It is cool and rainy here today, a real harbinger of fall.

Grace and Bradley said...

Beautiful color, the Fall is upon us now!!

Auntie E said...

Great Len capture. Love the detail. Happy RT

A single red leaf
caught in the greenness of grass—
who will set it free?

Judy said...

Beautiful leaf, Carletta! There are lots of fallen leaves here, but the sun waited till I got home before coming out, and I simply didn't want to take photos of greyness. There will be enough of that in January!

I like how the veins on the leaf are still green. Still some life left in that beautiful red leaf.
