Autumn in my Garden - Virbunum Leaf for Ruby Tuesday

Pin It
The late afternoon sun shining through a viburnum leaf, creating such a display of veins and ridges, seemed to light up the leaf from within.  Such is my offering for this week's Ruby Tuesday.

Love how the light hits one side more than the other - creates some interesting texture and hue. I think this would make a great needlework!

Hey there Christine !
That is one gorgeous leaf shot .. I love it when we can capture the sun lighting the very essence of the leaf .. my smoke bush trees do that for me : ) .. Did you change your header picture ? wasn't there a beach scene before ? it was gorgeous too ! But wow on the Japanese Maple .. I have a huge soft heart for that : )

The leaf is a lovely shade of red and I like its texture too.

OOPS, are you aware that you have word verification on? :)
A lot of people don't realize it so just to let you know.

Hi Tink, Thanks for stopping by. I would love to see that leaf in needlepoint!

Hi there, Joy. Yes, my former header was a shot of one of our local beaches. I have a love affair with Japanese maples too. :)

Thanks so much, EG. It's always nice to have you stop by.

This is a spectacular shot, especially with the light coming through the leaf and in the background. I love it!

Thank you all for your complimentary and instructive comments. I'm trying to get around to each of your posts. And I will re-think the whole comment thing.
