Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves [enlarge]

First of all let me tell you that this image was taken by my 12-year-old daughter, Sara. The day we visited Vallgorgina and while my wife, some friends and I were having a chat after lunch, I left her the camera and she pointed towards the nearby trees. The leaves of this platanero (Hybrid plane or London plane tree) looked gorgeous under the afternoon sun but I confess I underestimated my daughter's eye. Beauty comes from within and you always get surprised at how different people can produce astonishing results at a given situation that you would regard as too obvious.


  1. Sara captured a moment of beauty just beautifully! Please tell her thanks from your readers.

    Hi Carlos, never should underestimate 12-years-old-daughters....never. :o)
    And what can I say....she is yours and her eyes are your eyes.

    The picture is beautiful - with warm colors and a little bit feelings of "goodbye summer"

    A big smile and a thank you to Sara


  3. Lydia that's very kind. I will! She was pushing me to post any of her pictures. She will be happy and that makes me happy too.

  4. Ulla, you are right I shouldn't. In fact I am proud but every now and then I still think she is younger than she actually is. They go to school, make friends, learn stuff and become adults before you even realize.

  5. Sara is going to be a better shooter that her father :)
