Gorgeous - I've been trying to capture something like that around here with no luck at all - this is wonderful. I love oak leaves, you really made me smile with this!

Brrrr... I can feel the cold wind that's tossing those leaves around.

I like the framing too Carletta, nice choice.

Oh my...that is so beautiful! The dark cloudy sky makes it all the more dramatic! The exact shapes of the leaves is visible on most! Wow!
About my clouds...I see the fish with the eye too! I didn't notice the eye until you mentioned it! I like my sky even more so now! Have a great weekend!

Carolyn Ford said...

I am sorry...but, I am such a fanatic about writing...I used the word "is" when I should have used "are"..."The exact shapes of the leaves are visible on most!" Now I feel better! :)
