Photographic Bucket List

I have a photographic bucket list.  A list of things I want to capture with the lens, but all of the planets have to align first.  The planets aligned twice today. Three if you count the fact that I got a job, but I digress (hooray, me!)

Without purchasing a special filter, I have wanted to capture a dreamy sun kissed image, that flares like fireworks.  I have also wanted to capture a leaf while it is actually falling.  Like, seriously, I have to have a tree that sheds, a breeze and enough light to see it.  Oh, and the perfect shutter speed, and focus and click--all at the same time.  While patiently waiting for my leaf to drop (yes, I did wait-staring at the tree like a watched pot) I saw the sun through the leaves.  I actually caught it!  Here is today's shot.

With that shot under my belt, I continued to wait for a breeze and a dead leaf to find each other at the same time.  I won't tell you how long I stared, but I will show the shot.  Next time, I'd like to have a blue sky background instead of the pines, but, hey, I'll take what I can get these days!

I'll reveal the whole bucket list soon...
