empyreus: (aurora borealis)

(Okay, the subject line is a bit misleading, since these are technically shots of a bay and not of open sea, but...) After all the macro shots, I decided it was time for some sweeping shots. The contrast between the warm, muted colours of the trees and the almost steely blue of the water is really very pleasing, and oddly, it's as though the daylight gets paler as the days grow colder. The late evening light is still golden, but in the early afternoon, the light is quite pale.

I didn't post any pictures on Saturday and Sunday, I know. I'm sorry about that. Saturday was spent away from my computer, and on Sunday, my connection was being cranky.

Without further ado, I present more autumnal plants and foliage. If anyone knows what the plant in the second picture is called, drop me a comment. I spotted it when I was visiting my parents, and my mother didn't know what it was called either.

Thank you for all your kind comments on the pictures posted so far. I'll try to get around to answering them in a timely manner, provided RL cooperates with me.

Time for some more plant life. One forest-based, another from the edge of the water; both beautiful.

These pictures were taken by the bay, and I decided to pick one closeup and one landscape, just to have some contrast. The weather was wonderfully clear, so the second picture ended up being very blue indeed. :)

Yet more nature pictures. (I'm sure you're sick of them by now. *g*) The last two pictures were taken by the water, so I headed in among the trees today to get some variation. I wasn't quite able to capture the late light in the way I wanted, but I still like these pictures.

More nature-themed photos today. I took a walk down by the bay this afternoon, in beautiful bright golden sunshine (and freezing wind), and instead of sweeping landscape shots, I focused on abusing the macro setting details.

Things that made me happy today: carrot cake. Yes, something that simple. :) I deviated from the recipe a bit by adding a few spices, and it turned out great. The cake smells like gingerbread and tastes wonderful, and I keep going back for one more slice.

EtA: Oh! I almost forgot. Whoever nominated two of my fics for the [livejournal.com profile] mome_awards, thank you so, so much!

I posted a few pictures of the blue evening light yesterday, and here are two more. I rejected these two at first, thinking the angles were off and the composition bad, but when I looked at them again, I found that they're actually not that terrible. Granted, they're a bit wonky, but there's something about how the ground has turned into a solid black silhouette that makes the pictures a bit eerie. The spindly things are actually massively tall industrial chimneys, but they might just as well be old fenceposts, since you can't tell how far away they are. In the second picture, I quite like how the clouds seem to loom very low.

I'm trying to capture small things that make me happy every day, and today it was the beautiful light just around sunset.

The yard is dotted with fallen leaves in bright shades of gold, red and orange, and I wanted to share the beauty.
