Haiku Friday - Fall

wood smoke smells outside
blankets and snuggles indoors
fire erupts the trees

still green with flicks of
colors so bright a last flame
before the gray ghost

winter is coming
but for now fall is still here
favored time of year

It is most definitely fall in Minnesota. I love it. The colors are peaking here, and I finally got my header shot. (though I am sure I will keep taking ones to use in the future) I went out to our massive maple tree right before dusk. The lighting made me figure out some stuff on my wee little point and shoot camera. I just need to reacquaint myself with f stops, shutter speeds and depth of field. I have been puzzling over what to tell the in-laws I want for Christmas, but I may have found my solution. I am ready for a better camera. Ready to blend my knowledge of 35mm photography with digital. I'm thinking another Canon like my small camera and my favorite 35mm, but I'll take suggestions.

Haiku Friday can be found here, with the lovely Christina.
