Dear All,

Today, went to the country side of the city and it was quite cloudy but later having luck I happened to see blue sky and that too in this lat autumn seasonal days, and I tell you - It was wonderful!

I tried to capture the beauty of these last colorful leaves of the season against a pin-drop silence you can judge from the stagnant water in this small pond surrounded by beautiful trees.

The wooden stairs were provoking me to look to the colorful world, the pure world of Nature!

Hope you enjoy the mood in this shot!

Seasonal greetings,

Dear Paras,

Of course the there're hardly any leaves left on the trees. And most of them are fallen. Your composition is aesthetic where reflection is eye catching. A beautiful presentation my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Ciao Paras, fascinating autumnal composition with fantastic reflections, splendid light and wonderful warm colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Paras, a good PoV with the wooden posts and the neglected looking steps leading us into the picture.You have got the lovely golden colours of the leaves in the reflection, and then more red leaves in the fg, sandwiching a beautiful blue sky.
The tight crop works really well imo.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Is it the end of life cycle or the beginning of life cycle? Nice capture of those leaves, you should be glad you don't have to rake them. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Love the reflections. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,
You captured here the real 'finale' of Autumn! These scattered golden foliage resting on this broken pier ready to be swept in the water joining those already floating. A splendid reflection adorned with glorious lighting.
A very neat presentation.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras.

It's sad, be they will return.
Once again, te reflections and the crop line adds much appeal, the water so still provides cyrstal clear images and colour, nice touch with the stairs leading down too, tfs

Hi Paras:)
I like to run down and jump to the water!!!
Very nice frame with much alive autumn colors, great POV, beautiful work:)

Good morning,all your fall shots are very good but I like this one in particular.Leaf covered steps,reflections on the water and old wood poles create a strong autumn atmosphere with the character of a painting.Expert exposure,all the best,Otto.

Hi Paras,
Artistic presentation with fantastic mirror reflections.Unique angle taken down the "coloured " stairway,well seen.

Hi Paras, thanks for your visit to Shiva's Pond, the Oppenheimer Pond is soo beautiful too - yes, they have a lot of similarity. I guess, I could sit there too and - lass meine Seele baumeln" ....
Beautiful reflection and sharpness.
Kindest regards Monika

PS I guess I missed a lot of wonderful pictures.
