  1. There's always something satisfying visually about the juxtaposition of man made and natural. The slabs of glass make the leaves so fine and delicate. It enhances everything really..
    I really like this, could look at it for hours!

  2. First of all, I have to say that I think I like your removing your banner photo...I sort of like opening the page and seeing the "main event" right off the bat.

    Today's picture is terrific. Like Angela, I find the juxtaposition of nature and man-made things pleasing. I was surprised at your settings. It looks like a sunny day, yet you needed 1/400 even with a pretty wide aperture.

  3. Great one DL. Sad seeing the leaves fall now. They have been such stunning subjects for all of us.
    Can you hear me humming La Vie en Rose???

  4. Nice contrast! Thanks for following my fledgling blog :)

  5. Wow, Rob! Your photos continue to awe. Love the colors. Love the contrast between nature and humanity. Love the symmetrical and asymmetrical elements. Just a wonderful, wonderful picture all around! Well done.

  6. Great colors. The orange and blue are so vibrant. The lines are also so sharp.

  7. Beautiful! The orange against that intense blue is just amazing.
