Nurture Photography Week 2 10-12-12

Nurture Photography Autumn 2012 Photo Challenge

Here we are already in the 2nd week of the Nurture Photography Photo Challenge! For this week, the prompts are Yellow and Light. Technically, I could have used the same photo for both prompts, but what fun would that be? This is one of my favorite times of the year, both in temperature and in the beauty of the Fall season. I went out alone last week for a mind clearing photoshoot at my favorite place near home. The sun was beautiful on everything. Even the most mundane of leaves looked spectacular against the glitter that was bouncing off the water. The sun was so warm, I was even able to find a hard working bee gathering pollen for the hive. Here are 2 of my favorite shots of the day.

YELLOW
This worker bee is covered in yellow pollen. He was really taking his work seriously I guess.
It is getting harder and harder to find flowers in decent shape. This guy is taking full advantage of this flower full of pollen.

LIGHT
How can these dying yellow leaves not look fabulous with all of the light bouncing off the water behind them? I just love this shot, it is simple but stunning, in my opinion.
