I’m a huge Thomas Kinkade fan and I wanted to take a photo that was somewhat of an “ode” to him. His paintings have inspired me by how the light in all his paintings saturated the colors of the entire picture. I even wrote a blog about how I wanted to live in many of his paintings because they seem safe, full of peace and serenity. You can read it here, I want to live in your paintings blog. I discovered I could do that with my photos too. The great part is, that even though this photo is not a painting, my mom does live in this area (to the far, far right of the picture but not seen) and it is indeed a….safe, peaceful and serene place.
You can also see that this is the same spot I took a picture of for another Photo Challenge called “The Golden Hour” in the link below. I have waited patiently for several months for those same trees to change color because I loved how the sun reflected off of them along with the shadows on the ground. I thought, “This will be fun to come back to in the Fall.” I was right. Took the Saturated Photo Challenge yesterday around 4:30 pm.
These are a close up of the leaves from the picture above. The branch to the bottom left near the bush is what I captured up close. Isn’t Fall amazing? I love it. Hope you do too.
