152/366: autumn hues

On this last day of Autumn in Australia, the sky is unusually blue. I can’t speak for other cities, but in Melbourne it is like a last hurrah before Winter sets in. Yesterday I took a photo of the autumn leaves on the nandina in the back yard, with a maple in the background.

I love the way the colours co-ordinate with their burgundies and crimsons.

I was moved to recreate this photo since the sun is shining. Why not do it now? I thought. Ah, the wonders of digital photography! However, my plans were foiled by the shade cast by some conifers, so instead I took some of the maple at the rear of the property, with filtered sunlight creating some lovely images.
