... the feast of harvest... when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field...Exodus 23: 16

My husband brought these two ripe pumpkins from our garden to the house today ..The best place I could find to do this manual focus set up was by the front door out of the sun where there was some shade and where I could prop the painted Pumpkin Patch display against the door with the ripe pumpkins.

Some people paint faces on the pumpkins for Halloween, but nature has painted them
a bright orange...it is wonderful that we see our world in color and photography is
indeed painting with light...By setting these pumpkins in the shade it brought out their
deep vibrant colors..

We had frost on the ground last night which made it necessary to cover the tomatoes and some of the flowers...Some things still got nipped by the frost.

Thank you so much Davide for the courtesy of the spotlight...You are so kind!

    These are big and beautiful pumpkins from your garden! You made an excellent still life shot out of them! Will you cook with them, make homemade pumpkin pies maybe? Yikes! Frost already for you!!!

    Thank you for the comment, Ann...I plan to bake them like squash since I am still on my
    diet and don't want to gain back the 14 lbs I have lost since July 9th...I am now 131 lbs
    as of this morning and my goal is to get down to 120 and hopefully maintain it at that weight..

    Excellent! I am not surprised that you got frost last night. It was in the upper 40s this far South.
