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.

  2. 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 :)

  6. Your daughter has a great eye for photography!
    Love the light and DOF!
    Congrats Sara!

  7. Nada más bonito que la luz del otoño.

  8. Beautiful colors and lighting, nicely done!

  9. wow. great shot from Sara! she might surpass you soon Carlos! :p

  10. Muy bonita, felicita a Sara, tiene muy buen ojo! :) Mis hijas tambien hacen fotos con mis cámaras y muchas veces me sorprenden.
