Ardent Color


Ardent color blazing bright

Vibrant and alive

Kissed by autumn’s brilliant light.

I drive past this gorgeous tree at a local park in my neighborhood quite frequently as I am out and about, and yesterday I decided to finally pull over and try to take a photo of it.  I wish so much that I could capture how truly stunning it really is.  One day I’ll have a camera with the ability to snap photos of things like this and do them better justice.  But anyway, this is a huge tree and it really stands out from all of the rest with its brilliant array of colors, the depth of it is absolutely amazing!

It reminds me of tie-dye!  😀


May your world be alive with color today, and with…

  3. What a gorgeous tree. The camera never captures the total beauty 🙂


  4. That tree is just magnificent!! 🙂 🙂 I want to sit under it and look at the leaves 🙂


  5. You captured it just fine Julie, in words and picture, and I understand about wanting a good camera to capture more details and beauty! I borrowed a good camera last fall to shoot the glories of fall. The album is on my FB page if you’re interested.

    I love your phrase kissed by light. Much like my poem yesterday. XD


    • Thanks Brad! 🙂 My camera takes lovely close-ups, but seems to lose its depth on farther away shots. Of course it doesn’t help that I snapped it in the bright sunlight, but man was it ever dazzling! 😀

  13. There’s this charming little restaurant in Paris called Le Buisson Ardent. That’s what I thought of when I saw this lovely tree blazing with color. Just beautiful!!!
