Snapshot Saturday~November 16

I’ve been enjoying the Fall a great deal.  The colors have been so spectacular, but I haven’t been capturing a lot in photos. But it’s Snapshot Saturday so I’m sharing something that I thought was unique.  Snapshot Saturday is hostessed by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.  Be sure to check out the other great photography you’ll find there.



Friday morning as the sun rose, the sky was streaked with pink.  That pink worked it’s magic on the trees outside my kitchen window and especially the leaves that had fallen beneath those trees.  It was an amazing combination of colors.  Unfortunately, it didn’t translate as well as I would have liked in my photo.  I think it’s still beautiful.

Trees and leaves

It’s not as vibrant as it looked to me in person.  Maybe my eyes were playing tricks and it looked different to me.  Perhaps it’s true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  I think in this case, it might have been.

Happy Snapshot Saturday!

  1. I have that same problem with the colors not being as intense. This looks lovely though. Are you doing Nanowrimo this month? Here’s My Saturday Snapshot

  2. It’s hard to capture light in photos but you did a great job.

  3. Oh My! How pretty! It almost looks like something out of a faery tale. 🙂 Here’s my Saturday contribution if you’d like to see it. Have a great weekend!

  4. I am starting to appreciate fall more than I used to.

    I can visualize it, Fran. Must be spectacular!

  6. Oh what you have here is indeed a snapshot of a glorious sunrise. I can imagine how beautiful it must be. I think I’m violating the rule for Sat. Snapshot… I’ve posted a series of pics… can’t resist sharing! 😉

  7. I love the color of light in the fall when the leaves on and under the trees make everything seem to glow.

  8. No, your eyes were not playing tricks but the camera was. If the exposure setting isn’t just right, the color tones will be slightly off. That can be adjusted with photo editing software… but I can imagine how vibrant it was when you saw it. The tree has beautiful color.

  9. I understand Fran. I tried to capture some fall foliage photos and they just didn’t come out the way they looked in person. Sometimes it’s all about enjoying the moment while you’re in it, and I’ve decided these are those moments.

  10. It can be so hard to capture a moment exactly, but your description helped those of us not there to see what you saw 🙂

  11. You’re so right … the camera can’t capture exactly what we see unless we put filters on the lenses to build on the light that we perceive… maddening, isn’t it?

  12. I can understand what you mean that the vibrant pink didn’t turn out as well in the picture as in “real life.” I have often noticed that myself, when I have taken pictures. Still, it was a great capture!

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  13. Sometimes the pics I take in Central Park are not nearly as pretty as the scene is in real life. I totally get it Fran!

    Great picture anyway. 🙂

    Hope you have a nice Sunday. The weather is really “warm” today.
