Living on the edge

Coming home from a visit to the doctors office I noticed this tree and how the afternoon light was bringing out it’s wonderful colors. I made another illegal u-turn, then stood among traffic to get a photo. I stood in traffic because I wanted the mailbox to big bigger and I only had the 35mm lens. Maybe I should bring along one of those construction workers fluorescent vests and keep a couple of pylons in my trunk. Then again a zoom lens would have been safer but there’s nothing like living on the edge.

  1. Really love the color of that tree, Monte–but don’t get yourself hurt out there (or jailed for illegal U turns)! Lol…I enjoy starting the day too much with your blog.

  2. Monte, wonderful colors. Just make sure you’re last shot isn’t a close-up of the hood ornament and/or front grill of a moving car or truck! 😉

  3. Monte, you’re such a rebel, but at least you’re a rebel with a cause! Lovely fall colors, there!

  7. I love the photo, but I must admit that my heart was beating a little faster as I read your description of the circumstances under which you shot it. You must have been cautious—since you emerged all in one piece, so I’m glad you got the photo. What a gorgeous tree.
