I love shooting macros at this time of year. Autumn is such a rewarding subject, just as nature is settling, cocooning; turning inwards for the long winter ahead. I never tire of photographing seed heads either. Endlessly captivating, they offer forth their generous, basin-like heads, sheltering a bounty of tiny jewels secreted within. These ones looked still young to me, and they stood out, green and proud amongst a scene of quiet decline around them.

I agree, autumn is full of opportunities photographically.
Wonderful. Little packets of hope caught in their yearning.

A last burst of life energy. That autumnal feeling and the reality of the season caught beautifully.
Love the contrast of strong detail and “blurred vision.” Absolutely wonderful colors! 🙂
I very much enjoyed your story ‘Seed Head Study’ – beautfully worded and the accompanying photos…Karen
The color is so beautiful!
Love the photos – they make me think of rough woolens, or skeins of good wool – the colors are gorgeous.
I see that – perfect
