Nurture Photography Week 4 10-26-12

Nurture Photography Autumn 2012 Photo Challenge
Week 4 of the Nurture Photography Photo challenge already! Fall is really winding down here already. Many of the trees are completely bare. Some are still glorious too, you just have to travel a little farther to find them. The weather this week was not at all cooperative. It rained 4 days straight, and when it wasnt rainy, it was foggy and misty, so not the best for photography. Did I let it stop me? NO! I have no problem driving around and shooting from my car :) Anyway, the prompts for this week are Red and Foliage. I have my choice to do either one or both. I have been doing both, and am doing that again this week. Enjoy your weekend!

RED
I was walking along the river, when this beautiful Red-Bellied Woodpecker landed on a tree pretty close to me. I love the way the light is hitting him. It looked like he was resting there, sunning himself.

FOLIAGE
There was just something about the lighting in this shot that I liked. It has a mini sun flare, and I loved how the edges of the leaves are all lit up in glowing sunlight. Here I complained about all the rainy foggy days, yet picked out 2 shots so full of light!

These are so lovely...I also saw a woodpecker just today and got a few shots with my camera. But he was much farther away - yours is beautiful! The sun flare is wonderful, too.

So beautiful! The light in the lower picture is amazing - so soft and strong at the same time!
