Festival of Leaves: in the pink

It’s time for another year of Festival of Leaves. This is the place to share your love for autumn and rain, for dark evenings and cups of tea, of books and all that you love during this time of the year.

~ Verena Cave


Walking in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago I was immediately drawn to this lovely copper-coloured maple leaf contrasting with the pink painted asphalt of the road crossing onto which it had fallen.

If you have some autumn leaves to share, then please visit Verena’s site and join in. She’ll be very happy to see you.

(Macro Monday will be taking a break for a couple of months )

      Guess what I found thirty metres down my road? Only a VR post box!

      I just had to stop in the middle of the road and take a photo – fortunately it was very quiet in the suburbs πŸ™‚

    I keep taking them (leaf photos) and not having time to post. 😦 It won’t be long till this challenge is over! Pretty on pink πŸ™‚

      I doubt there will be many leaves left after the rain and wind this week.

  4. Really beautiful, Jude. πŸ™‚ Well spotted.

    How jolly – pink painted asphalt ! Somehow very fitting for Barcelona I feel but not sure why lol
    Nice one Jude . Still lots of colour and leaves hanging on here but for how long ….

    I think you have a great eye for details Jude. I’ve said it many times before how you seem to see unique angles. Not only is the colour contrast great but love the texture. There I am touching the screen again. πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      You must have an awfully dirty screen Sue – all those fingerprints! πŸ˜€

      1. Sue Slaght says:

        All your fault Jude! πŸ™‚

  7. It stands out against the background, that’s for sure. πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Which is why I turned around half way across the road to take the photo! Fortunately no traffic!
