Peach Trees In The Fall

Sometimes you drive down the same road you drive almost every day, and then, see something for the first time. You know it has always been there. Today was one of those days for me. I have no idea how many times I have driven from Fort Valley to Warner Robins on Highway 96, passing the Lane's various peach orchards. No telling how many times I have stopped and shot peach blooms or peaches on the trees. I have even shot bare trees against blue skies, and on occasion against angry winter skies. 

But I had never shot golden leaves on peach trees. Not until today. I have no idea why the gold in the orchards never caught my eye before, but this morning with the sun coming through the trees I was caught by the beauty. Not only the leaves on the trees, but on the ground as well. Had to shop and shoot.

I did the top photo with the 15mm, on the ground. The bottom shot is with the 300mm on Macro. Just amazing the beauty God surrounds us with every day, and the joy that comes from finally taking notice.

Hope you find your beauty for this Monday.
