Color in the desert . . .

11-’11

Liquid,

molten amber–

chlorophyll recedes and crisp desert nights turn sweet red

the summer’s green.

Leaves on spidery spindles

dangle.

Wind rustles this factory shaker, this oxygen maker,

and in a glance, it’s gone.

    I really like how the red pops in all of these photos, especially the first one. Nice!

    • I do, too. I know my neighbor must think I’m an idiot, coming back time and time again to photograph the tree on his lawn. πŸ™‚ But it keeps changing–green, yellow, red, and all points in between.

  2. I love these Sweetgum trees for the same reason, those different changing colors. πŸ™‚ I’ve stalked those trees in my neighborhood too. πŸ™‚ Great photos!

  3. Very beautiful photos. Our neighbours already think we are strange, so I am not sure we can ever surprise them by our actions.

    • BTW, I snuck outside to try and get a picture of the mourning dove by my feeder, and she would not come back while I stood there–stock still. Now I see her again through my window. I may have to clean my windows, just so I can shoot through them!

      • Ah, that house cleaning thing again. πŸ˜€ I know my windows need it, but it is too chilly to do the outside. Did you get a picture of the dove? I miss those dears. They do not stay around here for winter.

        • I got her (I assume her!) yesterday. She is in my post for today “curves not Curves.” WIth such a fat body, she can still look so beautfiul and graceful. I have hope! Ha! Yes

I would love to hear from you!
