A few autumn leaves, underfoot and in sun beam:
I bought this plant at a greenhouse back in April. The plant was in full bloom then and I enjoyed photographing it. It stopped blooming and I put it outside for the summer - and with October it's again pushing out the flowers. The amount of daylight is about equivalent in April and October - maybe its a photoperiodism thing...
When I bought the plant it was labelled "Greenhouse Mum" - a chrysanthemum I suppose. Pixel shift mode, sixty five stacked images combined in Zerene stacker.
Walking through a peaceful place yesterday - fall colors are just starting to appear this warm autumn.
A couple of studio shots of flowers - first, a Zinnia, still going strong even in mid October (33 stacked images):
Second, a traditional Autum flower - a purple mum (48 stacked images):
