FALLING IN LAYERS

I went for a walk through Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle today, and I found layers of leaves…

Even the pine cones were layered with pine needles:

This weeks’ Weekly Photo Challenge is “Layers.”   More interpretations can be seen here.

  1. Beautiful details full of texture. The pine cone and needles is exceptional in sepia (?) – I love the Fibonacci spirals of pine cones and this one really shows it so well. You’ve captured the small pleasures of the end of season perfectly!

      • Yes, I’ve been many times to the mountains this year. It’s been a gorgeous fall. 🙂 I even have beautiful colors here in northern Virginia, but now the leaves are past their peak. 🙂

      • The “Ruin of November:” what a perfect way to put it, Lynn. I love November though, as it falls into ruin….. It’s when the ruins are over that it gets a little drab, and for such a long time. 🙂 I still prefer winter to summer though, anytime.

  5. Thank you Karen. Though these are very different from your work, you know sometimes I do images with a softer look, or blurred, etc., and I want to tell you that I carry your style in my mind very often, and it inspires me.

  6. Oh, I do love leaves…even when I lived in the desert of Arizona, I always looked forward to the minimal Fall that we had. We had planted a Cottonwood in our back yard so that we *would* have something that resembled Fall every year. Very nice images, Lynn…wonderful, actually. 🙂

    • Thank you Scott – leaves are like paper, and they’re very graphic, simple images, with a basic shape & so many variations. I’ve always loved them too. And now I’m appreciating cottonwoods, with their nicely heart shaped yellow leaves and that cool cotton.
