Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #68: Layered & #69: Seeing Double

This is my submission for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #68: Layered and #69: Seeing Double.

Sorry for being late for challenge #68. I was very impressed with Amy’s post about Plitvice lakes, and was anxious to submit mine, but I had never thought of “layers” in photos (don’t know why) and had a hard time to select any photo for the challenge. However, a week later, “layer” started making sense to me. Here are a couple of photos I had taken at North Adams, Massachusetts ;-).

Thank you, Amy.

Challenge #69… Tina said, “This week, let’s double our pleasure and focus on things that come in twos.”

Looking out of the window, I saw my neighbor and his son raking leaves in our front yard. Well, they were raking… 😉

Thank you, Tina.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

    Hi, Helen. I think your “layers” shots are great and really put the concept into practice! The shot of “raking” the leaves is wonderful, too!

      Thank you, Patti. It must be that I had spent too much time on Photoshop lately. When I saw the word “Layered”, all I could think of was how layers worked in Photoshop — one layer totally covers the next layer with different % of transparency. 😉 That was why I had a hard time to pick a photo. Seeing other’s post helped.
      Have a wonderful day.

      Thank you, Tina. They played with those leaves for almost half hour! Fun to watch. Half of leaves are still on the tree. Maybe I will have another photo opportunity. I hope. 😉
      Have a wonderful day.

    the landscape images are amazing…the “layers” of color, light, and landscape took my breath away.

      Thank you, Brenda. I was busy editing my nephew’s wedding photos and the only layer came to my mind was Photoshop layers 😉
      How are you doing? It’s too cold for me already and we still have several winter months to go ;-(
      Good night.

      Thank you for your comment. It was a not a good year for fall colors. Some year, the leaves turned bright orange-red and were very pretty. This father and son team had raked leaves, shoveled snow… etc. for us. Great neighbor!
      Have a wonderful day.
