Autumn & Winter in Pleasanton/Sunol, CA (2015)

Pleasanton and Sunol, CA has recently been through autumn and now it is winter. I have took some photos around the city and in my backyard of autumn foliage and winter scenery. Sorry about the non-posting these past 2 months. I spent the entire month of November pretty much sick dealing with several flu and cold viruses (and I had no energy to get up). The whole ordeal lead to messing up my sleep cycle for the month of December. Anyways, despite me feeling really really bad, I did actually go out for some photos, but due to my health concerns, it took a lot longer for me to get the photos processed and sorted. Anyways, it is now sorted, and I am here to show them to you! :) I hope you all had a great holiday season and will enjoy these shots. The photos in this blog post are from 11/23, 11/24, 12/3, and 12/11.

After a super windy night in Pleasanton, CA, a bunch of autumn foliage landed in my backyard pool. As much as it was a pain in the butt to clean up the pool after this storm, the leaves floating on the pool did make a great subject for photography. The photos of the leaves floating on my pool was shot on 12/3. 

I noticed a red leaf that was isolated in the pool. I thought it would make a cool subject.

I then decided to try a shot with some leaves that was more isolated instead of all piled up.
