Weather in this beginning of summer is ... rainy. My latest serious attempt to landscape photography ended with long drives without even leaving the car.
So, here are a few images of the plants in my garden, done sunday morning between two rain showers.

Another closeup image of the autumn vegetation caught in the morning frost.
I've uploaded a serie of 13 new images about this subject on my website a few days ago. You can check them here.

Somewhere on the cliffs over Fornant river.
During a recent exploration of the lower part of the river, i left the main path to search a nice point of view from the top of the canyon. I wasn't successful in that way but i was seduced by the contrast between green leaves and the dark trunk of this old oak tree.

I don't have posted any image of Valserine valley for a long time.
I was reviewing photos on my website and noticed this one which was never published here although it's one of my fav done with my camera-shake method.

When i woke up this morning, the rain had miraculously stopped and i went to the garden for a short coffee walk.
In the wet atmosphere and under the soft light filtered by the grey clouds, all the greens had a wonderful look. These leaves are protected by a big tree and were not damaged by the strong rain.

An other one from the little serie done by a frosty autumn morning in my garden.
Nights are less cold now and i can't continue that work as expected but low temperatures will certainly be back under a short time ...

Some beautiful autumn leaves i found yesterday morning in my garden.
When my wife saw the picture, she thought i had arranged the scene myself, but no, the leaves were really like that.

It looks like that this autumn will be a cold one here in France. For some times we have temperatures around 0 celsius, strong wind and often rain.
This morning i took my camera for a fresh walk in the garden and caught a few closeups of the frosted vegetation.

It was in october. At the end of the afternoon i was fed up with my office job, took my camera and went out to explore the surrounding meadows and forests.
I found no great combination of place and light for a nice landscape image. Perharps because i was tired, in the forest i just saw a big bunch of branches and trunks.
I started to play with my camera and autumn leaves without any real idea, without any real motivation ...
Suddenly i had the idea to try this old game of multiple exposures i loved to play when i was shooting on film.
I decided to test it with my DSLR and to make an in-camera composite of three shots of the same leaves with my 70 mm lens wide opened and changing focus. I wanted to see if sharp and soft parts of the images could blend in something interesting.
So, what is the answer or more exactly, what is my answer ?
In fact i don't really know :)
Some people find this image really beautiful but personally i don't like it a lot.
Of course it's not a bad one but i feel something is missing here. Too sharp, not enough, not magic enough ? I don't know but if you have an idea, i'm interested :)
