Red Maple Watercolor


I captured this image of beautiful red Maple leaves several years ago in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As I was strolling through my images from Fall's past, I noticed it and wondered just what it would look like with a little watercolor effect. I think it's even more beautiful. I can hardly wait for the reds and yellows and oranges of Fall here in the South. The weekend is approaching. We've had no rain for nearly two weeks. We will finally be getting some from a tropical depression which will be making landfall as Hurricane Nate this weekend. Everyone stay safe and dry. I also wanted to mention just how sad and disparaging all the news of the Las Vegas shooting has been this week. I can't even imagine the lives that have been torn apart by this senseless act of a mad man. Dear God can't they do something about gun control. GOD BLESS!

  1. I love the maple leaves with that effect. Las Vegas, a blog friend lost a very dear friend, another was not far away. Gun control, surely someone must have known how many firearms and ammunition he had? I cannot bear to think of the chaos, terror, sheer panic and loss of lives. Keep nature with its beauty in our hearts and eyes.
