I love how the yellow veins in this leaf contrast with the orange. It would make a good model for a wall hanging. The leaf isn't perfect, but that's what makes it interesting.
We took a little trip to the Grand Rapids (Michigan) area on Tuesday. It was a balmy 78 degrees and a bit hazy. I love those kinds of (rare) days in November. We spent some time at the Grand Ravines park by the Grand River.
Muted colors by the river--
I like to try to frame my photos with a tree branch/trunk when I can...
...or a railing--or both.
The woods in the protected areas of the ravines still had quite a bit of green.
But the colors kept changing depending on the sunlight. Look at those interesting lines. I think they were a vine winding through the trees.
I've always admired quilted landscapes with strong vertical trunks. There are so many techniques available to construct them. I really need to try one. (That's why there are so many pictures here.)
An overlook by a deep ravine. Kind of chapel-like.
Spots of red. Twins.
And another view.
Such a beautiful day. I haven't been able to get out much this autumn--but this made up for it. And now a shout out to Soma, whose pattern Autumn Harvest is featured in my Autumn Abundance project this year. Thanks, Soma, for your wonderful paper piecing patterns and for encouraging us all to seek inspiration with our cameras.
I'm linking up today with Wandering Camera, hosted by Soma of Whims and Fancies.
I hope to be back next week with some quilting. In the meantime, I hope your week is inspiring!
