Lumix likes leaves,




red oak ones,







and others.




And rosehips that the birds have pecked (they like the hard and hairy seeds, the sweet flesh they don't bother with...)



and those weird purple berries,


and sometimes, leafy landscapes.

My Lumix likes leaves, too, but so much depends on the viewer's eye. And I do NOT have your wonderful eye, my friend.

Lots of oranges and yellow here, but not so much red.

If you have time, look at Sarah Laurence's blog from this week. Maine had a snowstorm. Vivid leaves in snow: BEAUTIFUL.

You leaf me wanting more!


Sorry ... couldn't help myself. Twas the happy hobbit in me. Very nice leaves, Lucy Leafsnapper.


I'm leaving now. Giggle. Taking my leaf ...

Wow, must be the new camera for your photos are better than ever, crisp and brilliant in colour especially those reds that are my favourites. And your pictures have always been good with that eye of yours, Lucy!

Rosehips... yes, I noticed this myself the other day. You'd think they'd like the flesh and not the seeds.

Lovely Lumix lensed leaves. Love 'em!

Thanks dears.

Quessoy arboretum has a collection of different oaks, including quite a lot of the American varieties. They're a bit too young to be very impressive yet, but some of the leaves are interesting. Mild and maritime as it is here, we don't get a wealth of autumn colour. I'll look forward to those Maine shots, I heard about that freak snow elsewhere.

lovely photos, specially the oak leaves. Those purple berries are weird...

I'm glad to see that you have photographed leaves so lovingly. I find myself undable to resist them at this time of year. Stupidly I tell myself that I am only repeating what I done before. But that is wrong because they are different leaves and a year has passed and the world has changed and so have I. Thanks for the inspiration.

I agree, that even as we are drawn to the same sights- each time it is different.

I have a new Nikon but your photos make me miss my Lumix.

We had such a dry summer here in Seattle that many of our leaves are missing their color.

I adore the colours of those weird purple berries!

We should have such oaks here in AZ...

Ah, you have a new Lumix. Very exciting. I'm on my second Lumix, but a lower-level option (DMC-TZ4) and now having camera envy for yours. Sigh. Maybe my next one.

Good luck with NaBlogPoMo, Lucy. I think I'm not going to make it this year - too busy to keep up in any reasonably thoughtful way. But I remember finding it a very good exercise last year.

These are simply gorgeous! I love fall.
