Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

WordPress photo challenge – hue


This week the photo challenge from WordPress is all about hue.  And here in Michigan our world is ablaze with color; everywhere we look trees are glowing.  So it would seem appropriate that the photo I chose to represent the concept of hue is filled with red maple leaves glowing in this afternoon’s waning light, right in my own back yard. (Click on photo to see all the details.)



I especially like the way the background seems to bisect the photo, winter’s blue grey on the left, the last bit of summer’s green on the right.  That’s what fall is here in Michigan….summer hangs on as long as it can but inevitably we are heading toward the neutrals of winter.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Lovely hue surrounds us. You’ve captured the beauty magnificently!


  2. The maples are simply stunning right now.

    I love the simplicity of this photo, and the different colored veins really stand out.


  3. Nice shot!


  4. I wish we were getting some color – but I will enjoy seeing what you find


  5. Love the detail of the leaf in the photo.


  6. Thanks for sharing your color — it’s pretty drab here, thanks to a lack of rain. Beautiful shot!


  7. What a great shot. I might like your description of it even more 🙂


  8. Yes always the bright colors of fall give way to the black and white of winter. But if it did not work that way, would we grow weary of the jumble of colors around us always? Would we soon stop seeing the beauty of the colors? Perhaps it is the variety of the seasons, nature’s kaleidoscope, that keeps us interested. I know the years I spent in Southern California I most missed two things – real seasonal changes and dirt back roads.

    Remind me in February that I said this, because by then I will be hating winter and forgetting to appreciate seasonal changes.
