hydrangeadry - Picture Fall, Day 3

Today’s photo prompt challenged us to find the beauty in starkness.  The “easy” beauty of spring and summer is now fading away, and we were supposed to look in an unexpected spot to find something that might not necessarily be considered beautiful.  I took some photos today of dead and dying blossoms, pinecones, and dried out herbs.  Then I wandered toward the very back of my property toward a forgotten hydrangea plant.  The tiny petals had become delicate, papery, “ghosts” of their former selves.  Dappled sunshine, fallen leaves and pine needles, and a large aperture provided me with a blur of autumn colors for a background.
