While I took a photograph today, it was a family shot. Instead, I’m posting a bonus shot from earlier. Norway Maple leaf makes a lovely yellow in late autumn.
Witch hazel blooms close out the flowering season. Image taken in November. Nikkor 70-300mm AF-S ED VR. Another case where a telephoto comes in handy for wildflower photography.
Drooping branches of Norway Spruce catches the afternoon light.

A yellow autumn leaf from red maple, Acer rubrum. I shot this leaf, still attached to its twig, against a blue and white sky. Tinkering with Aperture removed the background for a very isolating effect. The lens was a Nikon Nikkor 18-55mm AF-S VR.
Cycle of the seasons reaches the leaves of the dogwood. I captured dogwood buds last winter as a cast about for something to photograph. Hints of red in the buds and twigs were present even then. Now we see the fiery conclusion.
Fall colors continue. It’s only a crabapple, but does it ever look delicious hanging on the tree, dripping in moisture from this morning’s early fog. I suppose with enough sugar it would be fine; but that applies to most things. Taken with a Micro-Nikkor 60mm AF on a Nikon D90.
