53Days #313 Three Tenacious Leaves

Three elm leaves struggle against the wind and heavy rain.

Three elm leaves struggle against the wind and heavy rain. Most of the others have given up and lay wet and soggy in the parking lot.

The sky was dark, the wind was blowing, the rain was coming down but I braved it all and my camera survived being out for a couple of minutes while I got some pictures of these three tenacious leaves. The day got worse from here on in as you may have seen in this mornings post.

Another angle of them being tossed about and soaked.

Tough leaves hang on.

Tough and defiant or perhaps they were just there waving so I would notice and take photos to immortalize them.

On such a grey day, they did provide just a touch of color to make the world some unexpected beauty.

Cheers to unexpected beauty,
