While cleaning around the kitchen sink I happened to glance out the window to discover, much to my surprise, that it was snowing ---- leaves! The sky was filled with yellow, orange and brown leaf-flakes swirling in the air as they gently fell to the ground. It was a a beautiful sight. Unfortunately, my photography skills could not adequately capture the magic. I experimented with shutter speed and ISO and by the time I found a decent combination, the wind had subsided and the snow effect had disappeared.
Alas, this was the best image of the bunch - but I have hope that my skills will improve over time, and I am proud of myself for slowing down enough today that I did not miss nature's magical moment.
