Red Leaves, Blue Sky



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I have been trying to learn to use the manual settings on my camera, which means I have to stop and think instead of simply pressing the shutter.

As a result I've found myself looking up through the colorful autumn leaves rather than simply looking at them. This is what my camera and I saw Sunday at Fall Creek Falls State Park here in Tennessee.

What a beautiful shot George. The red leaves really stand out against the brilliant blue sky.

Then your photos can talk more compared to the old time.

They are going to be talkative.

You and your camera got a lovely view. The red is wonderfully vivid against the sky.

Nice job here, with the manual settings. That has been a real challenge for me.

Red and blue speaks to my heart. From my earliest days I was very patriotic and my favorite superhero was Superman. So when I see this pic, something inside me wants to stand up and cheer.

This is my invite to you and Betsy.

My little camera has manual setting, I mainly use auto. The only time I found if the battery is low, I can't shoot with Auto, I can if I go to landscape.

Your red leaves look like flowers.

I think my Canon Powershot A530 is packing up, the view finder is gone. Today, I have to shoot in the blind.
