275/365: "Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering on the autumn tree." ~ Emily Brontë
Such a crisp, blustery, pretty day it was! I decided to let our three dogs come with me as I took a stroll around part of our larger meadow, looking for my Picture of the Day. I first tried for a teasel picture, but the light was no good. It really is something the way the position of the sun can make or break a picture, and no angle or perspective could coax the image I wanted out of our stand of teasel, so I moved on. The dogs had a wonderful time nosing around as I looked at different subjects, and I ended up finding another tree with pretty fall leaves on it. Several different leaves caught my eye, but this one I especially liked. Getting this picture proved to be a challenge because the direction of the leaf was too high where I stood. I saw a couple of old stumps below, so I carefully clambered up and maneuvered my way between branches until I had a proper angle. I needed to lean precariously out on a branch, but all was well and I managed to get a nice set of pictures to choose from! :)

Emily Jane Brontë (30 July 1818 – 19 December 1848) was an English novelist and poet, best remembered for her solitary novel, Wuthering Heights, now considered a classic of English literature. Emily was the third eldest of the four surviving Brontë siblings, between the youngest Anne and her brother Branwell. She wrote under the pen name Ellis Bell. Wikipedia: Emily Brontë
